I have watched TOO many hours of volleyball this week in a gym with NO air-conditioning and with outside temperatures in the triple digits. Today, it was around 104 degrees OUTSIDE ... what do you think the temperature was inside with four courts of volleyball being played continuously?
But that's not actually the question I have for you.
Here's the question I'd like an answer to:
Is it possible for a humble, kind, and generous person to be a successful athlete in a competitive team sport?
If you say "yes" ... list some examples.
If you say "no" ... tell me why.
Maybe it's just the heat exhaustion. Maybe it's the seven hours spent in the hot gym - just today. Maybe I need to take a kick-boxing class.
But I am so freaking tired of coaches playing the girls who suck simply because they are more "aggressive." Accuracy doesn't seem to matter them. Consistency doesn't seem to matter. But if you're the meanest, most selfish player on the team ... well let's applaud you.
And now, I'm going to go to bed and try not to dream about volleyball.
