Player Experience - Spring 2002
There appear to be a number of themes developing among player's responses
to the "Experience:" question. It's been a long time since we last
did this... so let's dive right into the controversial ones, shall we?
Here's a new theme (not): AA trash talking...
"My wife is making me do it, maybe I will see her more often." -
Most men have to beg for it... Paul's wife MAKES him do it.
"My husband bought me a new v-ball because mine was worn out." -
I'm confused. If it's worn out, then why make him do it more
"I'm an old ball handler from way-back!" - David Russin.
Which is why David is banned from over 30 assisted living facilities
in Montgomery County alone...
"Invented volleyball in 1895, first spike in 1916, this will be my 107th
season." - Kevin Hightower.
This is true. I verified it back in 1970 when Al Gore invented
the Internet. I was the first Webmaster!!!
"98% of my friends play volleyball" - Dan Leeds.
Really? Which league? (heh heh)
"Not exactly." - Frank Willard.
Reminds me of that car rental commercial. "There's Hertz and
there's "Not exactly". " I guess Frank would be "Not exactly" :)
Predictably, a few comments recalled the closing of the Corner Kick...
"Not a good drafter - must have been luck (12 times)." - Joe Potts.
The humble Mr. Potts drops the gauntlet...
"I draft better than Joe!" - Jack Griffith.
OK. Jack did draft the winning team this year... but Joe was not a captain.
Does that count?
"4 league wins over 5 years followed by 8 years of the Commissioner's
Curse (enough already!)" - Andrea Stump.
Our League Commissioner is either recalling glory days so far gone that
they are not documented on the website... or she is making it up entirely
:) As for the Commissioner's Curse, the Webmaster was happy to keep
it alive the last 3 seasons :)
"I watch 'AA' a lot. Learning how to be arrogant." - Ron Alger.
WOW. It's nice that our friends in AA are willing to share
their skills :)
The inspirational catch-phrase from last season that propelled the B champions
to carry a banner that reads "The Champions Suck!" continues, despite the
fact that Kyra Wohlford took this season off to make more volleyball players...
"New playing venue will provide a multitude of excuses for erratic play.
Will draft for Potts." - John Gartner.
"No experience playing volleyball without the aid of cold beer and cheese
fries." - John Gillick.
"I only play well on dimly lighted courts with green, half-rotted, beer-stained
turf." - Oscar Mulford.
"I can drink a pitcher of beer and still hit the ball." - Thomas
Umm... not anymore :(
Yes, it's a simple rule. Anytime somebody uses foul language to belittle
another, I will print it :) But sometimes, the refreshingly honest
approach needs to heard...
"We won Kyra a shirt so she'd quit. She sucks!" - Tim Sechler.
"Kyra still sucks!" - Amy Huber.
"I want to learn how to play & don't know how to at all! I'm
bad!" - Linda Nguyen.
That pretty much sums it up. At least you can figure there
shouldn't be an ego problem with her :)
