It's all about volleyball

Well, I think it's safe to say that I'm really excited about volleyball again. In fact, I think Diana is gonna be tired of hearing about it before too long, because I talked her ear off both ways to and from a match tonight.

I went to see Caity play for Marietta down at Mt. Union College, the closest match she had to home. In the afternoon Diana said she'd bug out of tennis to go with me, so she met me near work. I got all down about making the drive, but you know, once I was on my way that changed. No joke, she really is the reason I love to coach. I've written about her before, and she had an incredible season last year. I'm proud of her.

Coaching balances me out, and gives me purpose. It's something that's totally not electronic, and I love that about it. I mean, if I can get nine teenage girls to do what I ask and have them develop as athletes and people, virtually everything else in life seems easy by comparison.

I can't wait to get started with my tenth season...

I am very happy to see you so excited! You know I was pretty unsupportive of you taking a year off from coaching, but maybe it was good because this new opportunity is awesome and you are really (obviously) looking forward to it.

I've seen you coach a few times and it's nothing but magic. I only wish I were closer to make it to a tourney or two. I'm jealous of Diana because of that, fo sho. If you wear her ear off, don't hesitate to dial up your vball girl in MN.

When's the first practice? :)
