Last October, Jason surprised me with tickets to the AVP tour for my birthday. Last night was the event and it was AMAZING! The women played in a "Queen of the Beach" tournament (each girl plays with every other girl and the one with the most wins wins the tournament), and the men played in a "King of the Beach" tournament. Between sets, Kerri Walsh signed autographs! I bought a small replica of the official AVP beach volleyball and scored 7 autographs on it in all! They include Kerri Walsh and Todd Rogers (Olympic gold medal winners), Casey Jennings (Kerri Walsh's husband), Elaine Youngs, Angie Akers (played at Notre Dame), Diane DeNecochea, and Brittany Hechovar. The only ones I didn't get were Phil Dalhausser and Nick Lucena. Diane and Casey ended up winning the Queen and King of the Beach sets and both received checks for over $4,000! Wouldn't it be nice to play volleyball for a couple of hours and get that much money? Then, the men and women played one last game together. All of our friends from beach volleyball in the summers were there, so it was great to see everyone. What an awesome night?!
