Da Volleyball Game!


Since 2004, several of my friends, co-workers, their families, etc. have met at one of my friend's house in the East Oak Lane section of Philadelphia on the Sunday before Memorial Day for a cookout. My friend has a huge yard with a swimming pool and a volleyball court. This volleyball court has sparked a "friendly" but very serious volleyball game between the males and females over the years.

The game is played once a year and the winner has bragging and humiliating rights up until the next year. This game is played by serious contendors only... no kids and no drunks (okay, well maybe a few drunks). At any rate, I'm sad to say that my team (the men) have lost to the women for the past three years and, as I write this, I'm sitting here with a hurt ankle, a knee that needs to be iced, and a pain in my hip. If my team had won, I wouldn't feel so bad.

We lost the game 15-8, which is better than the year-before-last when we lost 15-2. What can I say? I suppose women (between the ages of 48-52) are in better shape than men in the same age bracket! I think next year, I'm going to just coach and bring in some slightly younger men. What do you think?

Enjoy your Memorial Day folks!
