“Your assignment is ready, if you want it, in a week.”
That was over a decade ago, when my life hit a crossroads. I could either take a job in a TV newsroom in the director track, or an assignment was waiting for me to become a professional umpire.
Although I chose the media track, with twists and turns, there are indelible lessons that being behind the plate taught me that also make me look at life and my work a little different than everyone else at times.

Hi Jeremiah.

As a baseball fan, I'm one who never gets uptight when an official makes a call that ends up being wrong (in terms of the replay). To me, it's part of the sport - the human element. I don't like all the whining when a call seems bad - "WHY can't we use film to decide???" I Don't want the human element super-ceded by technology. (What do we get then - President Super-Computer? Then what happens when the grid is down?)

(I'm even a bigger Boxing fan, and I stand by the ref's call when I score at home, even if slo-mo proves it inaccurate.)
