My Team Trader volleyball team is tied for 1st place this season. It’s very exciting! Last night was the big match-up – the 2 top teams playing each other. I was looking forward to it all week – the challenge and the competition – and was certain we’d give ‘em a run for their money.
Well, they stomped on us.
Ok, so maybe it wasn’t that bad. We weren’t beaten bloody but we did have a few scratches.
Let me preface by saying that this rival team is pretty stacked. All 6 girls are over 6′ tall. Yes, that would be expected if this were a pro team or even college, but in a somewhat recreational league, it’s not usually that way. So we were at a height disadvantage right off the bat (our tallest girl is 5′ 10″ and the rest of us are about 5′ 8″ or so).
Also, we were missing 2 of our regular girls and had subs, which changes up the dynamics a bit.
All that being said, we still could have beat them if we had tried harder but we all seemed to give up. You could tell many of the girls were thinking “why bother?” when the amazon women would hit the ball straight down on our 10 foot line.
Maybe we should have taken ‘em out at the knees….
But, we’re Team Trader and we don’t give up! Even though we lost all 3 games, we did give them a run for their money. There were a few times in the game when we were actually winning but we couldn’t hold on to it long enough to win the whole game.
We didn’t do so hot last night but we still have many more weeks to play and we will come back. Don’t count us out just yet!
1-2-3- TEAM TRADER!!
