True story. The other day while on the elliptical machine at the gym, Judge Judy was a re-run. There was a woman suing her ex-husband for a loan she made for him to buy a car so he could get back and forth to the coal mine, but instead he used the money to buy a necklace for his mistress and an X-Box for her kid. The plaintiff had the canceled checks as proof and her ex just came off really stupid. Her Honor even corrected his grammar. (Snap!) In the end, though, the ex-wife came out victorious and walked away with the $4217.32 she’d lent him.
What’s important about this story is that on the TV next to our beloved JJ was a new late-afternoon sports show called The Olympics. It’s probably from the BBC because they showed a lot of images of London Bridge and Buckingham Palace. Anyway, this particular episode was all about volleyball.
In a heated battle between the USA and Spain, two men on each team ran back and forth spiking, popping, and hitting the volleyball in all sorts of cool ways. It was actually quite exciting. And before you know it, we were huge volleyball fans. We desperately long to be men who are skilled with handling balls and scoring.
Well now, we (and you) have the perfect opportunity to achieve volleyball glory. This Saturday (and three days next week), Dallas Independent Volleyball Association (DIVA) is holding new member clinics for people of all skill levels to join their team. For just $120 registration fee, you can play all season long.
Bring shorts, a t-shirt and gym shoes to the clinic.
Oh, and knee pads. We have a set in every color (completely unrelated usage), if you need to borrow any.
