I unexpected got this shirt over my shift, and I was thinking, I wanted to blog about it…This is actually the champion shirt given to those employees who have participated and grabbed the champion trophy at the Teletech Sports League 2012- sounds athletic I know!...hehe I for myself joined the Volleyball event. I must tell you that I am not a volleyball player. I don’t play it, and I am afraid of the volleyball ball! You might have been asking why I got into the line-up. I’ll tell you all about it later on. So about volleyball; I have been hit once way back in high school and it was not the best place in the world. Anyway, I was supposedly going to play the Badminton event. However, there are a lot of registrants, and I was unlucky enough to be one of those "excess player"- bummer right? I was practicing so hard! Well enough with all the drama and move on. I was thinking, okay I’m gonna be your gorgeous photographer…hahaha (evul laugh!) So, I was taking photos here and there.
|The complete volleyball line-up.|
I was taking photos of the entire event including the volleyball players, and I was actually the only one cheering for them! That’s right, nobody was there because everyone is with the badminton event. Suddenly, due to a little twist of fate, one of the volleyball player got tired and she says she needed a substitute- I forgot to mention there are no extra players and that this is a mixed volleyball. So, who is going to replace her?…Me!!! I was telling the captain, I really don’t know how to play and I’m afraid of the ball. He says I need to play otherwise the game might be rescheduled or worse we might get disqualified. He also assured they would all do the stunts and that I don’t need to do anything. My role then is just to stay put and let them do everything! True enough, I was just in the corner of the court and they did all the tricks. They just need me to let the game continue. Perfect!!! I was not doing anything at all until it’s time for me to take the serve. Good enough, I know how to serve- the only thing I know about volleyball. Goodness! I remember the captain saying like “that’s just easy!”, “just let the ball cross-over and you’re gonna be okay”- very convincing, right?...hahaha
|Yeah! That is me on the far end of the court...hahaha|
|This is me surviving...hahaha|
|With my best blogger buddy Phioxee.|
|We are so champions!!!|
As the game went on, I surprisingly enjoyed it. I love my team mate’s moral support over my serving and some misfortunes…hahaha Whenever, I talked about this experience to my work mates who weren’t there, they are all laughing like it was the most hilarious thing. They just don’t know how I felt way back then. Needless to say, I have again conquer my fright over a 3-pound ball…hahaha and hey! We won! We were the champion, and I was on officially on the line-up!!….hahaha Thanks for keeping up with my silly life, till my next post…xoxo!
