    Officiated men's league games last night. The nice Jewish boys team has gotten aggressive—they're like a real Elders quorum team now. I had to stop the game and calm both teams down. Their captain kept saying, "we play physical, but don't do cheap shots."

    I have been asked to do a full college season. Community college that is. Of course this means different uniforms and rules.

    Soccer should just go by FIFA laws of the game and be done with it. No, each level has to have their nuances.

    Still should be fun except for the fact that the closest location is a 2 hour drive away. Still really excited.

    I'm quick on the trigger.

    My hope is to only carry a flag and wave it around. No cards from me.

    Congrats! Let us know how the season goes.

    I was asked by a couple colleagues to apply to the Eastern Association of College Football Officials early this year with the goal of working some JC and division III games this season. Then we moved. It seems like breaking in will be harder out west. A lot fewer schools that play football and more people trying to be officials.
