Andy Irons (1978-2010)

Son. Brother. Husband. Expectant Father. Friend. Surfer.

One of the legendary surfers, Andy Irons, passed away this week. I, for one, am deeply saddened. I do not swim nor know how to surf. But, I appreciated Irons' athleticism as well as his big heart (on and off the surfboard).

I have a long list of professional athletes that I would like to meet. In October of last year, I got to meet Andy Irons at a signing at an AT&T store in Costa Mesa. I remember getting there very early to secure a place in line and was excited to be first in line.

I had a few items to sign. He asked me quite a few questions as well as answering mine. I ended befriending a few other attendees who were all stoked to meet one of the best surfers in the world.

Andy, thank you for taking the time to be there that day. It was a pleasure meeting you!

I just would like to send my deepest condolences to the Irons family, friends and fans. AI, you will be sorely missed!

Here's a list of articles that pay a tribute to such an inspirational human being:

Meet Volleyball Champion

Misty May-Treanor

Thursday, Aug. 19th

at 6pm

Torrance Sport Chalet
Village Del Amo
21305 Hawthorne Blvd
(310) 316-6634

Beach Volleyball champion Misty May-Treanor and partner Kerri Walsh captured their second Olympic Gold Medal at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics and became the first team ever to repeat as back-to-back champs. Upon her return from the Beijing Games, Misty gladly accepted a role on ABC’s hit-show Dancing with the Stars. Misty was one of the rising talents of Dancing with the Stars until an Achilles injury derailed her shot at the trophy. After undergoing successful surgery, Misty is now back on the sand. She is competing in the 2010 AVP Opens with partner Nicole Branagh, the 2009 AVP MVP. -

AVP-=done for 2010

I'm feeling a bit low at the moment since the Association of Volleyball Professionals (A.V.P.) Tour is done for this season. There were supposed to be five events left in the season. But, due to financial difficulties, the A.V.P Tour closed out the season.

Now, the focus is on the 2011 season. I want to be optimistic and say things will get better.

In case you've missed out on the recent volleyball news, I highly suggest you surf on over to and/or
