I have yet to see the movie "Avatar."  Today a friend mentioned he is going to the AVP Beach Volleyball tournament in Cincinnati this weekend.  The last time (the only time, really) I attended an AVP tournament I was still in college.  My friends and I went and had a wonderful time watching Karch Kiraly, Sinjin Smith, Steve Timmons, Ricky Luyties, and Kent Steffes.  Great players, great to look at, and all very tall.  My kind of event! 

As I looked at the current AVP roster my friend pointed out 7'1" Ryan Doherty.  His nickname is Avatar.  A former baseball pitcher at Notre Dame, he switched to volleyball in 2005.  Very cool!  Too bad he was born when I was in high school.  :-)
