It's official people, I am kind of a big deal. I have just been offered a chance to step up to the next level of rec-league volleyball. I am subbing for a friends team tonight in the "C" League. The Mad Ants v-ball team is appropriately in the "D" League on Thursday nights. So tonight I will be able to relate to guys like Jeremy Richardson and Chris Hunter who received that elusive GATORADE Call-Up .
This is my big shot to really show the improvements I have made it the D-League and prove I can move up to the next level. Unfortunately the compensation between a 10-day NBA call-up and a V-ball "C" League call-up is not equal. Instead of getting a five figure pay-out, I will most likely receive a free 16 oz refreshing Bud Light (Drink Responsibly and only if you are over the age of 21).
I will let you know how I fair in the big time tomorrow. If you are hungering for basketball news, I will direct you over to Ridiculous Upside for a great interview with a D-League agent. You will note that Aisander D wrote the article and not Scott Schroeder. Apparently Scott has been MIA since the release of Madden '10 , there is also a reported shortage of Cheeto's and frozen pizzas in the Bismarck area.
