www.sportrio.org

I received a request from Lucas Meyer at sportrio.org, requesting that we exchange links. As an ex-volleyball player (I still watch it on TV), I was particularly fascinated by the page on Footvolley in Rio. 'Footvolley' seems to be volleyball on the beach for soccer players, somehow using the feet and heads instead of hands. I can't wait to see how this game is played, I thought. But I didn't have to wait. See Youtube here, and here. (Yes, it's even played in the USA.)

Hey came across your comments after seeing these videos myself. Yea, I live in Ft. Lauderdale and down in South Beach there's a group of guys always playing footVolley. It's an amazing sport to watch; but the athletes tell me that if you played soccer it's easy to pick-up. I'm a volleyball guy so my feet aren't good enough for this.

That guy's grabbing at straws... he should at least be looking for a blog that's current and in the same field (no pun intended) as his.

@The Author - ha! I got an email from the same dude and my blog is about ballet. Since I never open links in emails I did a google search and found this. Not even close to my field! Cheers~

I can use the same words as the person before, I just changed a word "ballet" and put there "collecting antique toys".
