Stuck in the Middle…

Last Friday I randomly chose to go to the Eagle for happy hour.

It had been a shitty week and I felt I needed some beer and to be snubbed by downtown gays.

After being snubbed for an hour or so, I ran into Rick (a guy I know from pickup volleyball).

He asked if I was going to be playing in the league– to which I replied “What league?”

…And things were set in motion.

The next day I met up with Rick and his team for a volleyball practice/audition.

My audition for the roll of Middle went well, and I am now officially a member of the “Hell Yeahs” volleyball team.

Can I get a Hell yeah??

The “Hell Yeah”s are part of a gay volleyball league which goes throughout the Autumn season.

We are firmly a ‘B’ level team. We play a 5-1 rotation, but are not very fluid with it. It’s meant to be a fun learning experience.

It should be fun. I’m hoping it’s fun.

I’m also hoping we don’t get our asses spanked.

For those of you volley novices, Middle is the position that always slides to the middle of the front or back line.

Middle is usually a monster tall guy with mad blocking skillz– and hitting skillz because it’s harder to hit well in the middle of the court.

This is what makes me playing Middle somewhat ironic.

I’m only 6′ tall. For most good volleyball teams I would be relegated to a backrow specialist or maybe a setter.

But the average height on the Hell Yeahs is about 5’9”– thus making me look like a Middle.

I just hope I can do the position justice.

The good thing about playing with a team is that it will force me to be more physically active as the weather turns colder.

And I really hope it forces me to be more social.

I keep looking for ways to meet guys here in the cities who have similar interests. Ways other than Manhunt.

My other social forays have been big gay FAILS so far. Hopefully this league will help me ‘network’ a bit and ‘dig up’ a few friends.

Wish me luck!

Oh, and keep your fingers crossed that our team kit isn’t bright yellow. I look shitty in yellow.

    I think you’re pretty nimble at just about any position. 🙂 Too bad about the yellow – I was looking forward to seeing the pictures of Big Bird playing on your team. (Giggle)

    Seriously, have some fun!

    So I hope your team kit isn’t bright yellow. What color would you prefer?

    Sounds like loads of fun. Congratulations on getting out there and doing something about it.

    and maybe that asshole will you played w/earlier will be on an opposing team and you can whip his ass.

    wow that’s great! i’m always in awe of “sporty gays”.

    As much as you love Volleyball . . . Seriously if you’ve never seen “Iron Ladies” please rent it 🙂 It’s over the top homo gay, but so amusing, and based on a real story! Stay for the credits to see the real people it’s based on.

    I own it, I love it, it’s uber gae!
