I have a volleyball team

I got the volleyball team I wanted. Not even one kid declined our offer. First practice is Sunday.

So now I can put the anxiety of tryouts behind me and replace it with the anxiety of making the team everything it could be. I think defensively it's pretty strong, and that's where games will be won or loss. I think I have what one of my former parents used to call "big bangers," the kids that get up and pound the ball every chance they get. If they buy into the offense and the setter works out to be as good as I hope she is, it could be magic.

My expectations this year are just going to be neutral. I had a skilled team last year that didn't believe they were capable of big things. Granted, most of the kids in this case were on big-deal teams, so perhaps they have the attitude and beliefs that will lead them to great success. I really want to make that trip to the big show.

I'm launching a volleyball site, hopefully in the next couple of days. I promised myself I'd have it done by the end of November and, well, the clock is ticking. Going back to that code now...
