ATTENTION: (SLANG NEEDED) Volleyball in Austin Update

If you haven't read the previous Dec.2 posting please do.

I still need more terms and slang you use on or off the court that pertains
to volleyball.  It need not be something fancy, it can be common terms
anything really.  I wanted to say thanks to those that have helped out so far.
It will be completed by the 13th of Dec. and online a week after or so.

Take Care, and I wish you all well.
Mike

How about these?
*** = geting hit in the face, head , or general upper body.
Roof = devestating block, straight to the floor.
Pancake = dig with hand flat on floor or playing surface.
Rock = perfect set with no spin, you can read the fine print.
Up = as in "nice up!" meaning nice dig.
Tool = hitting off of the block.
Game = meaning ability to play or compete, "He has game!"
Deep Dish = a carry set with too long of a held ball.
Hope these help!!

In Georgia (and other parts of the southeast) your rock is called a
peach (perfect set with no spin).  As in "That was a peach!" or "He sets
peaches!"

Have fun

I played college ball and we had our own little variations of what terms
we used on and off the court.

Six-pack:  When you hit an opponant in the face so hard she falls on her
butt.

Nugie;  When the middle blocker is set up on the second hit.  It usually
happens after a blocked ball has come up.  I'm setter, so I would always
scream out "It's a nugie!"

Leaded:  This referrs to a set that comes lower and faster than normal.
My hitters would just always say before hand if they wanted their set
leaded or not.  (I don't know where that come from.)

"It's snowing":  Refers to someones underwear*** our of their
spankies.

Tool time:  When a short player gets a kill off a touch by the other teams
blockers.

Pitch fork:  A tandem.

Oscar:  I 1 set to the middle blocker and right side hitter.  Also known
as the sandwich.

Grasshopper:  A serve that looks like it's going to net, but them somehow
clears.

Doddie-Doe:  We always referred to big, tall, uncoorinated, fat girls as
this. It somehow fits.

I'm sure there has got to be more, I just can't think of any off hand.
HOpe you can use these, they make me laugh just thinking about them.

Or how about...

A tuna=someone who really gets caught in the net. As in "gawd, what a
tuna!"
Caught a fish=An opposing player who touches a ball that is obviously
going out. As in "what kind of bait are you using?  You really caught a
fish that time!" Sometimes accompinied by a motion resembeling catching
in a fish with a rod and reel.
Chester=hitting someone in the chest with a spike(kinda like a sixpack
but lower!). As in "chester!"
Handcuffed=unable to dig or play a ball because you couldn't get you
hands on it (usually a akward dig of a hard driven ball above the
waist).  As in "he was handcuffed and taken away by that one!"
You can autograph that=a set like described by rock and peach above.
Campfire=when a ball (usually a dink-there's another slang for you,
although I once had a coach that wouldn't let us use it because she said
that it was a slang obsenity in Canada!) drops between two or more
players(usually in the center of the court) who don't go for it because
they think that the other player has it.  Kind of like people sitting
around a camp fire.

These are a few that I can remember.  I'm going to practice/open gym
tonight, women's league on Sunday and co-ed on Monday, so I ask around!

Here is another one I just remembered.
Credit card defense= everyone was charging to get to a ball
