Beach Volleyball Players Dip Into New Year’s Waters

By Mary Whelan


The RBVL Members were in full spirit on this fine first day of January 2006. Not only did they out number the attendance in the Dip, the also out numbered the attendance in the after party at the Irish Circle (aka “Green Day).

Let’s start with the Transplants. Much to everyone’s surprise they were heavily represented with 100 people in attendance (their team). Marty Charles led the parade of people from Beach 119th Street for the Dip. Sporting a luxurious bath robe and a Grand Puba Hat he charged into the water. Where did he get the bikini? And didn’t know they made it in that size? As he charged into the water, someone heard him say “look out boys”. Poor things.

John Sica from the Bikini Bottoms was also spotted taking the dip, chased in the water by the Queer Eye Fab 5. Probably because his robe did not match is bathing suit! Where are the Tommy Bahamas they picked out for you?

Connolly’s let the charge on Beach 127 th Street. Capt. Steve “O” led the way in true Connolly’s fashion along with the rest of the strippers and dippers. At the end of the Dip, Steve was seen handing out Frozen Mudslides and Chilly to those who participated in the Dip.

As for the dip that took place on Beach 146 th Street we have nothing to report due to no parking rules.

After the dip there was rumors that some participants were seen in a hot tub where cold beer was served. Rumor has it the person who hosted this hot tub party had no chest hair ... wonder who that could be?

Pimp Daddy was seen sporting a Velvet Red Fedora and his Gold Beads for Green Day at the Irish Circle. Holding court in the corner of the bar, he was thanking the Transplants for coming out in full force not only for the Dip but in the Irish Circle for Green Day. Rumor has it he was accepting applications for those who had better than average drinking skills for this team. Wonder if that is to play or to carry the cooler from the car to the beach?!

Team Federation was also out in full force participating not in the Dip but in the festivities the Irish Circle had to offer. Glad to see the RBVL Volleyball season is getting started early in the after party festivities.

Let’s not forget our staff at the Irish Circle for making the day an enjoyable event for all who attended. It makes staying in the night before and coming out January 1 worthwhile. Thanks to the bartenders who were quick and ready for their thirsty patrons who never had to wait for a drink. Maybe next year we can turn down that AC!!

Just think, in 5 short months we will be converging on the beach for another fabulous season of Volleyball thanks to the RBVL Team and Committee.

Happy New Year!!
