• "We are a family" - KK (2016)

  • I have the virus (mild case, Im ok) and im going by my shitty memory but I stand corrected. Good for her if she envisions that for herself. Shes very likable and positive. They need to do more of this things. Rach and Jordan did one for the uswnt if anyone else is interested. That was nice too.

    Nice to hear you are well. Please keep us informed about your health. Most probably in COVID-19 thread. Regards.

  • So USA is finally getting pro league in 2021 ???


    I just saw promo video on Jordan Larson twitter.

  • They're labeling it as a professional league, but more like some series of pickup matches (6 weeks of competition?). Still something they're experimenting on and hopefully head in the right direction though will need a lot of more work before an actual league becomes a reality.

    Larson has agreed to play when it begins sometime February 2021, same goes for Akinradewo who based on the article is rumored to play in Japan next season.

  • I am happy for American girls, it felt a bit inhuman that they were forced to play abroad, most likely in Europe if they wanted to pursue their dreams. It is like your country offers an education to be studied but says "hey, we did not promise any job opportunities". I hope this will change the retirement age average of American players.

  • She's come a long way. In 2017 I didn't think much of her and thought she would eventually fade out of the NT, but she stuck to it, worked hard in those mid-level clubs, and look where she is now.


    Whoever updates her wikipedia page is seriously her #1 fan (beginning to think it's you werka lol). That is the most detailed wiki page of any volleyball player I've ever seen. :obey:

  • What can I say I’m a Drews stan lol I love her past season I hope she continues to improve.

  • So many volleyball players posting about the horrible police brutality that happens way too often all around the world but got recognition finally of course with the beyond disturbing case of George Floyd.


    This picture of Cuttino, with that caption though🔥 How powerful. She is a full on goddess!

  • Dana Rettke is BIG 10 Female Player of the Year. Congrats DANA!

  • I recently read Rettke's profile and she seems so committed in being able to play professionally in Italy post-college and play for the NT "until her body allows her to." That's queen shit right there. Love her so much.

    She specifically talked about Italy? I wonder if she already has some sort of agreement for when she graduates
