Good morning, beautiful: Heat on the beach

I played volleyball for the first time in two years today to prep for my doubles tournament in Vail. My friends Amy, Koa and I went through some drills on the sand courts at Amy's complex and it brought me back to the summers when I used to follow the AVP religiously. Misty May and Kerri Walsh get the bulk of the media attention on the women's side, but I've always been a big fan of Elaine Youngs and Rachel Wacholder. I think I always felt a kindred with EY's big blocking, badass attitude style of play. Here's a video of the dynamic duo in action, with EY losing her shit at a blown call by the down ref. I love how passionate she is... which is maybe why during college my volleyball teammates nicknamed me "Adge the Rage."
