juuuuuuuust a bit outside
i umpire baseball and this is a pic of what my mask looks like, kind of. take a look at the section below the chin. that protuding wire might've saved my life yesterday. a ball actually richocheted off the catcher, hit that throat protector and then glanced off the side of my neck. it was actually a bit scary ... although it didn't hit me really hard after 2 richochets ... but nevertheless, i don't ever want to be hit in the neck or throat area by anyone who can throw up toward 70 mph.
i'm fine. come to think of it, i wasn't even panicked about it enough to think about it after the game. i never did tell Wendy about it. honey, if you're reading this now then just realize that i remain as stupid as i was BEFORE i was hit in the head. i have good gear protecting me.
