    Not this year, but I did a couple times last season.

    Love the beautiful weather...

    High school coming up, but that’s not even in the same ballpark, so to speak...

    Did my alma mater's big rivalry game last night (Go McGill-Toolen!) and drew the South Alabama game today.

    We have some newer guys that are still eager, need some experience. I have no kids, had time, was filling the gaps for a while up to a year or two ago. Ended up with almost 200 hrs one year, 100 required. I’ve got way more hours in this year already than I need to fill my obligations through Oct ( our year end), so I don’t do as many games as I used to, b-ball or football, mostly bigger event details now where they need more than 3-4 guys, or stuff during the workday that’s hard to fill, as I have lots of comp time at work to burn.

    We did have a mini riot one game, before my time. Rival gang related, but the weird thing it was West Bloomfield on one side, an upper class suburb. Must have been C list gangs, no Errol Flynns, BKs, Bloods or Crips chapters out there. Probably whatever gang Martha Stewart joined to survive her prison stay.

    We do high school games. I'm sitting at about 400 hours of overtime so far this year though

    No kidding? How long ago? She ever hear of any actual gangs in their high school? She can verify, WB is not exactly gangland... pretty upscale burb.

    Makes me wonder if the story got embellished over time.

    I started 2012, so it was before then, not sure how far back. Didn't get the impression it was that long ago though. I'll check, got me curious. Didn't find anything on Google.

    Funny you post this. The big university in the area is always looking for bodies to work the stadium crowd control. I've resisted because even though the OT pay is decent, the thought of dealing with college drunks versus peaceful time off has always tilted to time off. Now that oldest is off to college, I may have to work some of that OT but hours of standing around, dealing with the occasional drunken jerk . . . . naaaa.
