TWICVB Week 6
Hope some new fans can make it out to Coors tonight to see the conference opener tonight against a tough Utah team. For those who haven't gone before, it's an awesome spectator sport- the perfect combination (at least for me) of fast exciting athletic action during points, broken up a little by the time in-between points, which just allows the excitement to build based on the game and match situations.
Looking at the box score for the last home game (against a solid Butler team), official attendance was only 337, although thinking about it a little that match had the disadvantage of being RIGHT before the home football game. The match the night before had 732 spectators. Hope we can improve on those attendance numbers tonight, and whoever does come out is LOUD.
Also, want to commend CU for making attendance free for all kids 12 and under at ALL home matches this year to hopefully help build the fanbase.
I can't make it tonight, but I'll definitely be at some this year.
Also - we may as well sell it any way we can to get fannies in the seats.
VOLLEYBALL PLAYERS ARE HOTT AND THEY WEAR SHORT SHORTS.
