Vancouver Beach Volleyball

We’re starting beach volleyball in Vancouver this week.

The team I play on is called Sh*tbox and we play in the Urban Rec / Maxfun league at Urban Beach on the False Creek seawall.

It’s an early start this year and I’m cringing at the forecasted weather for this week. Hopefully the sun will come out and we’ll have a great night – or else it will rain all day and we’ll be rained out.

If you’ve never played beach volleyball I definitely recommend giving it a shot. I had never played beach before and always thought it would be fun. This is my fourth year and I expect I’ll continue playing as long as my body will let me.

2006 Masters – Mickelson in Green

Phil Mickelson walked away with the Green Jacket at this year’s Masters tournament in Augusta. It was an exciting Sunday morning, but by midway through the back-nine the tournament was Mickelson’s to lose.

After being the guy who couldn’t win a major for so much of his career, he’s certainly done a good job sealing the deal since the 2004 Masters tournament.

I was really pulling for Couples to catch up with Phil, but it was great to see them have such a fun Sunday round together.

Motorcycle Trials Video Game

I’m not a “gamer” by any stretch of the imagination. The only video game I’ve played regularly throughout my life was NHL Hockey for the various systems that have come and gone over the years. My friend introduced me to a site that offers a number of online games and I did find a game that I really enjoy. It’s a motorcyle trials game called Trials Bike.

Follow this link to have a look. Be forewarned – you will spend some time playing this!

Malik Shootout: HELLO!

There’s been a lot of talk about Marek Malik’s shootout goal in the past few weeks. I hadn’t had the opportunity to see a clip and it was starting to drive me crazy because all the guys in the dressing room keep bringing it, my family keeps talking about it – even the volleyball team’s been talking about it.

So I found the clip and if you’re like me and haven’t seen it yet, you can see it here:
