Volleyball Insights...

Things I forgot (or never knew to begin with) about Volleyball:

- You use your gluteus maximus muscles a lot. Next day soreness will appear if you aren’t in good shape. (ahem)
- Forearm bruising is apparently a bi-product of under inflated volleyballs.
- Playing sand volleyball in March is great and all, but the sand at our court was very cold. Risk of hypothermia low, but numb feet is very possible.
- Losing all your games should be cause to be despondent, but playing with cool people makes it practically enjoyable
- Sand in your eye = bad news. No wonder all those overachievers wear sun glasses even after dark. Huh.
- Flailing your arms around in random patterns can actually, albeit rarely, result in a ball going over the net and scoring a point. Proof is in the pudding! (eww..that sounds gross)
- Consuming green jello shots between games does improve performance on the court. Pretty sure there is empirical evidence to support that statement.

I'll take freezing sand over 100 degree sand any day of the week (and twice on St. Paddy's)
