In Star Wars the Master-Padwan (apprentice) relationship between Jedi Knights Obi-Won and Anikan went south when the dark side
consumed consumed young Skywalker.
Luckily in softball, my Jedi umpire master John Smith and I have an outstanding officiating relationship.While I have my dark side, I've always tried to stay on the good side of the force.
Even though I must admit I look a lot handsomer with the Helmet on. More importantly, working with John is a pleasure as he has taught me many things about good officiating and is always a valuable source of knowledge. May the Softball Force be with you Brother
