34 year-old male from Grand Prairie, TX|
I'm a Missile Engineer,,,,, If you see me running, try to keep up.
||AVP Dallas OpenHa, finally got to do something cool before SorvatS.|
Went to the AVP (2 man Beach Volleyball Tournament)
Man was so freaking cool. They set up 5 courts w/ only walkways through the courts, so you watch part of 1 game, turn around, watch another, grab balls as they are spiked off the courts and get autographs as the players walk between games.
I watched on Saturday from 9AM till 10:45PM, then volunteered on Sunday (got to be the visual score keeper for a couple matches) from 7AM till 3:30PM.
Everyone, players and staff were so nice (even bartender @ Cuervo Margarita tent was giving out free shots,, if you asked nicely).
Got Nygaard, Walsh, May-Treanor, Jennings, Gibb, Wong, Daulhausser, Rogers, Branaugh, Youngs, Boss, Wachtfogel and Williams autographs.
Got the funniest tan across my head. I had a visor on Saturday, but kept hitting the bill w/ my camera, so turned it around. Well 11 hours of sun later, I have a white horizontal line across my forehead where the strap was, even so detailed that you can see where the thick part of the visor transitions into the strap part.
Here are some pictures.
And the links if you want a little bit bigger version.
I took around 160 pictures the two days, so if you have a favorite (that's one of the top 4-5 teams of men/women, let me know & I can send you what I got).
