Bonfire? No, volleyball..

As we wait anxiously for the annual bonfire to kick off the football season (if there is any) we hone in on a JV volleyball game coached by Cami Ochoa, who was just a student lo a few months ago. Yes all of us go through the thought of someone younger then us in a leader position as we get further away from high school (the school principal at mine is only 2 years older then me, and the football coach is 17 years younger). Its tricky to have respect for someone who used to be your colleague but good coaches and leaders draw the line between friendship and coaching your friends. I never wanted to get too close to any of my bosses or players I coached/managed. And I hope Cami follows that edict. But we’ll see.

Dont know why the team is proud of Cami yet. Unless its for being hired to coach them at such a young age.

Then in P3 we have a suggestion that ‘they’ dont care if its her first game. Who, the other team, or her players that just said they did? Im adding ‘confusing dialogue’ to our list of categories, as this was a staple of the old regime. Say one thing and mean up to 3 different things. Bada bing bada boom. And we’ll see if miss orange hair becomes one of the troublemakers/protaganists for the fall stroyline.

Myself, I’d prefer blocking and tackling. And a bonfire.


  1. My interpretations. Keri (I assume it’s her speaking in P2) is finishing the coach’s statement. It’s like, “Yeah, yeah, we know, you’re proud of us either way.” Keri is jumping into the smartass Corina role. And when she says “they don’t care”, she’s meaning the opponent won’t be showing any mercy. As far as orange hair girl, I’m assuming that’s a player on the other team, and she is one of the “they” who don’t care. But rather rude of her to stand 2 feet away from their huddle and eavesdrop.

  2. Yep, she means the other team but she could just as well mean us readers

  3. …and #64 looks like she wants to say “… dam right, you silly twat… we don’t care if that’s a new coach or an old coach… we’ll kick your candy asses either way…”

  4. It’s not orange hair, it’s a hijab. Keri is a bit short for volleyball, but most likely (if Gil is her father) she just doesn’t have her growth yet.

  5. Or are you talking about 64? I think that’s Coach Ochoa, looking completely different than she did on Tuesday. I still can’t follow the random placement of speech balloons and multiple topic panels here. We’ll see if the colors are better once the games start.

  6. A question for those who might know such things better than I….if the player is keeping with obligations by wearing a hijab, wouldn’t that mean she shouldn’t be wearing shorts? When I’ve seen a hijab on athletes, they are also covering their legs, with sweat pants or athletic slacks.

  7. Okay all these flashbacks and jumping around in time have screwed me up

  8. Meanwhile in local news, doormat high school team starts season 2-0 and one of the sparks behind this turnaround is a girl, Senior Emily Tassara… She’s playing kicker, wideout AND cornerback(!) Now that’s hardcore…

  9. Nope, #64 is on the other team. Coach Ochoa is the first one talking in P2.

  10. Well, yeah, that became obvious today. Also that she’s a ringer – 6 feet of solid muscle on a JV team, spying on the opponents chatter?
