My father in law was a respected member of a rural Utah community. But when he was umpiring baseball, you can forget respect. Periodically, after a controversial call, he'd let the wailing and gnashing of teeth go on for a while. Then he'd slowly stand up straight, take his mask off, and slowly walk back to the backstop.

"We'll," he'd say, " it was a ball, because I said it was a ball." After the silence bounced around for a while, he'd go back, get into position, and call "play ball!"
