Two weekends ago, I woke up to my phone ringing. It was Ahren from Volleyball Source Magazine.
"10 Days to Glory, a documentary. You in?" he said without even a hello.
"Uh, yeah?" I replied.
At first I thought he was inviting me to go see a movie with him at 8:12 a.m. over the phone. As I started waking up and we talked more, his idea became very clear to me, very quickly. We were going to create a mini documentary to follow our men's beach volleyball teams on their way to The Olympics in London. Needless to say, we renamed the project slightly and shifted our focus. The teaser for Road to Glory is above. We hope you like it.
If you are in the Toronto area, come down to Ashbridges Bay tomorrow to be part of the action. The women's Olympic trials game is at 1:00 p.m. EST and the men play at 3:00 p.m. EST. If you can't be here in person, we will have the links to the live streams posted tomorrow.
