Shoulda Gone To The Meetup
Stef is in town with faithful reader Aaron and his wife, attending the Dean Meetup at Nectar's. I would have gone, but my travel schedule is such that I don't get lots of chances to play volleyball, so I went to our match. Bad night for us.
First game we started very well, but then our momentum got killed by three objectively dreadful calls by the ref that allowed the other side to hold serve undeservedly. We staged a rally and almost pulled it off, 13-15. That set the tone for the night.
Second game we were totally out of sync, but still almost pulled off another rally (13-15). We were absolutely awful the last game--we had to play rally points*, which we always seem to suck at. Perfect end to the night: I had the serve at 9-14, and blew it for the first time all season, thus losing the game (hey, I am Charlie Brown, afterall). Good grief.
* For the unitiated who actually read this post: rally points means that a point is scored by the other side when you lose your serve.
