The Other Olympics

How the Western Wayne County Senior Olympics Volleyball Tournament was hijacked by Parks & Rec Administrative staff and a bunch of "ringers".
Despite the fact that 2/3 to 3/4 of senior players are men, rules were changed to require that at least half of each team be composed of women, with severe penalty for not having a 3rd woman on the court. Given the almost 7wks between registration deadline and game day, this usually means having at least four women on your team in case of injury, emergency etc. The most successful teams have been those of Mary and Joe Barberio, the rules makers, proving once again that: he/she who makes the rules, wins! Number of teams competing has declined from a peak of about 12, before the rules were made more rigid, to 6 this year. Lots of potential players, especially guys, are sitting on the sidelines, unable to jump thru all the hoops.
