7/25/03, 11:06 am – Life Complicates Itself

The AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour is in town. The Belmar Open is this weekend, and the New York metro area is crawling with pro volleyball players.

Jeanhee met Karch, Canyon, Misty & Kerri down at Pier 25 yesterday. She got a ball signed by all four of them.

Tuesday night, I got to drill a little with Matt Fuerbringer at Chelsea Piers. And yesterday, I got out of work early to attend a clinic with Lee LeGrande out in Jersey. He took us through some good drills on blocking and dropping off the net, talked some strategy, and called California “Cali” and volleyball “volley”.

“The key in volley,” Lee said discussing where to drop off a block, “is to keep things simple. Life complicates itself.”
