All About That Spike (With apologies to Meghan Trainor)

My volleyball reminder emails were getting more terse.  Last week mine was a one liner.  This week I decided to ramp it up.  I had some of these lines come into my head while cleaning out the gutter last night.

All About That Spike (With apologies to Meghan Trainor) (Footnote #1)

Because you know
I am all about that spike,
‘bout that spike, no dinking.
I am all about that spike,
‘bout that spike, no dinking.
I am all about that spike,
‘bout that spike.

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no 30 years
But I can fake it, fake it.
Like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that wingspan that all the players want
And the anticipation to be in right places.

We see other people sweating at the Y
We know they working hard
Looking envious as they walk by
If you want fun, fun then join our game
Cause everyone is mocked,
but no one is ever blamed

Yeah, my daddy he told me “make sure you are having fun”
‘cause that’s what you remember when the day is done.
No one remembers the lunchtime you sat at your desk
If that’s what you’re into then I think that  it’s grotesque(Footnote #2).

Because you know
I am all about that spike,
about that spike, no dinking.
I am all about that spike,
about that spike, no dinking.
I am all about that spike,
about that spike.

I am bringing the volleyball out
Go ahead and tell your bosses so
We are just playing and you gotta go
No one remembers the lunchtime you sat at your desk
If that’s what you’re into then I think that  it’s grotesque.

(Sorry Meghan)….

I know Brent Collins is out this week, what about you?  Will we see you at the Rome Y ?
