Action from tonight's volleyball game
I refereed the B Grade game tonight with the Country Week girls team, their last hit out before we go to Perth. They are great kids, not highly skilled at volleyball but they show flashes of brilliance occasionally. They always have a good time and don't take it too seriously, unlike certain bloggers!
Our game tonight was against the top team 6 pack who are undefeated and well clear on top of the ladder but tonight we gave them a really good run for their money, taking a set off them for the first time and coming close to winning the match until nerves got the better of us in the closing stages and we missed a few gettable shots. It was a great game, probably our best so far and I felt like I played reasonably well. Stu and Ravo hit some great spikes which is the most enjoyable part of the game. Our setting was much better tonight which made a big difference.
We knew we had 6 pack worried because they called 2 time outs on us in the second set!
Tomorrow is going to be a VERY busy day, I'll be grateful if I survive it! and seeing as it starts in about 5 hours, I'd better get to bed. I've been painting for a couple of hours, time flies by when I get engrossed in painting! I think I'll take a couple of canvases to Perth with me next week so I've got something to do in my spare time!!
Scott Darlow will be at school tomorrow, performing for 3 year groups, an assembly, a lunch time and a concert tomorrow night if we can get some kids there, we've left the PR very late so I don't know what sort of response we'll get, hopefully the kids will love him when they see him at school and that will encourage them to come along.
There's a lull in proceedings at the World Cup at present, with just 8 games left and the quarter finals being played on the weekend. It's OK though cause Wimbledon has started so there's some late night sport to watch!
I want England to win the World Cup, unlikely I know but I've always barracked for them in the soccer. Ironically they play Portugal, the team I have in the sweep, in the 1/4 final, so I'm on a winner either way there. I'd be pretty happy if Portugal won the cup.
I hope Argentina beat Germany, not that I want them to win the cup but I want Germany to win it even less.
Brazil V France is a mouth-watering prospect, I'd rather France win that one, Brazil have been too dominant for my liking.
And Italy Ukraine is an each way bet. I've got Italy in the minor sweep but I'd rather Ukraine win. If England can't win the whole thing I'd prefer a team who've never won it, but with them out-numbered 6-2, that's unlikely as well!
Did you know that The Men's Wimbledon Final and the World Cup Final are on the same night? Now that's what I call a good night of television!!!
