I once heard someone say, “Nobody celebrates like a volleyball team.”

I couldn’t agree more. Soccer comes close, but when you only score once or twice per game it’s got to be big.

In volleyball there’s a potential for a party with every point.

Kill: whoop, holler, maybe a dance.

Ace: fist pumps and high fives all around.

Block: Arms in the air for the traditional Nebraska “ROOF.”

I’m usually against celebrations. I’m more of a “act like you’ve been there” type person.

Touchdown and sack celebrations in football drive me nuts.

Basketball players chest bumping after dunks make me change the channel.

I don’t know what’s different about volleyball.

But I enjoy it.

On another note, I know the NSAA can sometimes be criticized for its scheduling tactics, but I’d like to thank whoever was in charge of the Broncos’ football schedule this year. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I was very grateful the team had a bye Friday night and we didn’t have to stand around in the cold for the game.

As for this week, the game against Elba-North Loup-Scotia will be played in Scotia.
