The academy of professional umpiring

Posted at 11:54 AM on April 14, 2006 by Ben Tesch

Ever wanted to know what it's like to be blind, wear action slacks, and get yelled at and booed every day at your job? Train to become an umpire!

Seriously though, the promotional video on the home page of the site is amazing, in that sort of Tom Emanki/Fred McGriff kind of way. It has that weird You Only Live Twice ninja training grounds feel, and that part at the beginning where all the umpires are running totally reminds me of that Matrix Revolutions playground fight scene.
