NY Players in DC

So now that the long weekend is well over and Wednesday has come I am finding the time to sit and post about the things that have been going on since Thanksgiving.

I just posted a few pictures from Thanksgiving Parade but after the parade was packing for a volleyball tournament in Washington DC.

Went down with a team of my friends who play in both Gotham and Urban here in NYC.

We were playing in a new division, BB+. It is equal mix of rated A and BB players and I was looking forward to it.

Kind of funny how the last few tournaments I have been to I have ended up playing with a setter who I had never met before we stepped on the court. But let me see both times have been very enjoyable; the first was a great setter who led our team through some great games and the second from the past weekend was just as good but he made me laugh and be silly throughout the weekend. I look forward to hanging out with him again really soon even though he is up in Toronto.

We finished our first day 2wins and 6 losses leaving us at the bottom of the pack, but come the second day and re-jiggering some things in our line up led us to a third place medal. I was very happy with it. I don't think I played as well as I have been this season but I had my serves, blocks and I was passing some good balls when need be.

The ride home with my friends teammate Philton and his husband Thomas was great as I never get to spend that much time with them on a personal basis. Love them both.

Now I am back home for two days and still trying to find the time to empty the DVR.
