I had a rare chance to spend Thursday and Friday evening at Rye High School. On Thursday night watched the volleyball team continue, at that time, their perfect season. Friday evening I watched the Thunderbolt football team face the third “Top Ten” opponent in a row. I love watching all high school athletics but am partial to these two sports because I played a lot of football and volleyball.

I played high school and college football and intermural college volleyball, along with recreationally at a chemical dependency treatment center where I worked. I won’t mention how many years ago but it came somewhere after the invention of the wheel and way before cell phones.

Both sports have changed. When I played volleyball everyone rotated in a nice little serpentine line and everyone was admonished by their teammates to stay in their area. An area was a bit of a nebulous term, especially for those of us who thought we were pretty darn good at the game. I won’t mention any names.
