So what's the deal with your screen name?

Recommended Posts

The Lipdrag (also known as the fish hook) was one of the practice torture moves we would do to each other when bored in high school.  If your practice partner was just turtling up on bottom a Lipdrag (insert index finger in the side of the bottom man's mouth then pull like you wanted to spin his head around) usually got things going.  Sometimes a fight is what it got going.  There was also a close cousin move:  the Nosedrag.  Both seem quite gross now.  I don't know why I didn't get my finger bitten off back then.

I assume this means you have been chosen to speak for the entirety of Idaho.

I live in Texas and Officiated for about 15 years. I went out of state to call a tournament and there were several table workers that kept calling me "Texas Ref"!

Yes it is harder each year to find people to be the whistle for a dual or tournament. I think 2 of the best things I was told when I started were:

1. Be hard of hearing. Not everyone in the gym is talking to you, so don't hear everything that is said.

2. Nobody is there to watch the Official. If you think people came to watch you, you are in the wrong business. 

I was not the best by any means, but I always tried to get better with each event.

My brother, my son and myself all wrestled and were state champions. I was the heaviest of them all.  Can still make my high school weight class...Unlimited.  My poor mom has been fortunate/unfortunate to see about 500 wrestling matches.  She used to take the street car to see professional wrestling matches when she was 11 years old in 1950.
