Player Experience - Fall 1999
"BumpSetDrink describes my game perfectly, except for that bump and
set part." -- John Gartner.
Um... there's nothing I can add here. That pretty much sums
"Am willing to drink, but only if necessary." -- Dan Wingerd.
Heh, heh. It seems to be necessary about once a week for Mr.
"I would have more experience if the commissioners wouldn't kick us
off the courts at midnight" -- John Gillick.
Sure, blame someone else for my troubled game...
"8 T-shirts and a bag to carry them in." -- Joe Potts.
The league had to vary it's prizes to accomodate the humble Mr.
"Have gotten real close to winning BB. Even played on the last
night of playoffs for 2 years." -- Phil Dennis.
Hmm... it doesn't quite have the boastfulness of Mr. Potts' comments,
but I guess you have to start somewhere.
"I had 37 kills in a single game in a dream I had last year." --
That's funny, I had I dream where I blocked Dan 37 times... definately
must have been a dream :-)
"None under new name." -- Achie Mah.
Hmm... I wonder if I would make AA league if I changed my name.
As long as I didn't have to marry Ray...
"On occasion, I spike the ball VERY hard!" -- Billy Milligan.
Yes, those "occasions" only came up every time we set him!!!.
"As tall as Michelle Akers, with a better swing (and more intense...)"
-- Betsy Gillick.
She's understating the intensity thing. The Webmaster's house
is not a happy place when we lose..
"IBM/Loral/LM BB, B, C, D, E and F Leagues (Okay, just kidding about
the F-league part)" -- Scott Ichniowski.
Yeah, well... only 'cuz we didn't have an F-league :-)
"It was Skip." -- Dee Weiss. "It was not Matt." --
The debate continues... I didn't see it. I did hear
the load boom of a well-struck volleyball slamming into an unsuspecting
victim. I also heard the audible grimaces of about 15 men who were
watching the play. And, I turned around to see Joe Potts on all fours
clutching his groin area in obvious pain. Then, Joe got up to argue
with the ref about some call (was Joe called for a double hit, perhaps?)
and then return to the ground after losing the argument. I don't
know who it was... but if I were Matt or Skip, I'd consider wearing a cup
(just in case).
"I'll play with anybody except Scott Ichniowski. If he drafts
me, I'm moving to San Francisco." -- Peter Hsu.
Wow, I guess Scott should have known better. Hey Peter, how's
"Will buy beer (repeatedly)" -- Elizabeth McFarland.
Okay, Elizabeth didn't really write this. Dale wrote these
comments on my scouting sheet at the A tryouts. I really tried to
draft her too... but Doug must have been offered more. Damn.
Anyway, this is the kind of shameless bribery that really impresses the
captains. Forget that volleyball stuff...
