In the airport at Tucson after the HP Championships the asst coach for Stanford ask my daughter......so who is your favorite player? Your vball hero. She fumbled , squirmed abit and said I guess Karch Kiraly (really the only player she could think of)....or any other girls on the PSU team (good answer but!).

I knew that answer....virtually a blank was coming. Anyway I don't think I need to explain where I'm going with this but gee wiz I hope we have a boat load of young players "saying I want to be Reid Priddy, Lloy Ball, Stacy Sykora, Rich Lambourne ,Logan Tom, or Ogonna Nnamani. "

I remember pretending and dreaming this when I was young (Karch/Timmons/Aldis/Dusty.......and it was so important and fun!

From the looks of it we have outstanding teams indoor/beach going into the olympics and they should get lots of press time.

I grew up reading both Volleyball and Volleyball Monthly, they are both the same magazine now known as Volleyball Magazine, but i remember idolizing Keba Phipps and the Oden sisters. I grew up watching a lot of Beach/Indoor players locally. I still give the gift of a subscription to my nieces and nephews. The television exposure is great. I think the local connections we have need the publicity as well.

I think this Olympics will be different with the internet legitimately competing for the first time with television. If anybody gets HD Channels from Time-Warner the UNVHD channels also airs taped and live USA volleyball matches.
