Player Experience - Fall 2003
The Webmaster's vast reservoir of creative prose has dried up.
After months of working for something funny... I've got nothing!!!
So, for this season, I have contracted out my responses (to the lowest
Humility (or not...)
"After months of specialized training with Sensei Miyagi I was able
to learn the intricate "crane" kick and defeat Johnny Lawrence (you know,
the evil leader of the Cobra's) in the All Valley Karate Tournament.
I have since moved on to other interests such as volleyball. I am
currently attempting to master such moves as "swat the fly", "carry the
baby" and "throw the pizza" to complement my karate moves "wax
on, wax off" and "paint the fence". I am confident this experience
will add a rich variety to your league and enhance the competitive spirit."
Mr. Miyagi: [sighs] Ronnie-T-san, must talk. Man walk on
road. Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk down middle, sooner
or later, get squished [makes squish gesture] just like grape. Same here.
You volleyball do "yes," or volleyball do "no." You volleyball do "guess
so," [makes squish gesture] just like grape. Understand?

"I'd like to think that I learned a lot during last year. I grew,
matured, blossomed, if you will. Because of these wonderful experiences
I'd like to take myself OUT of the running for Captain. I think this
would be best for all players, captains, commissioners, and Dee/Andrea.

OK... the Webmaster's back!!! I'm feeling abusive and I'm
running out of despair.com posters
"It doesn't matter - the tee-shirts are the same for every level." --
And Rick would know this how?
"Why bother? Gillick didn't post my last entry anyway." --
Umm... was it as funny as this one?

Skill is overrated. The keys to success are guile, treachery,
Advil, and duct-tape.
"I named this website, and have the volleyball to prove it. Funny
thing is that volleyball still looks like new. " -- Bill Epstein
His volleyball looks new... but I think his last t-shirt looks quite
old. Coincidence? :-)

Uh huh... Andrea should commit. I don't think she takes this

The Webmaster is not certain that either of the statements have
any foundation in the English language. Street cred? Is that

Well... that's it for me. CYA L8R BSD. Yo. Peace.
