Volleyball Follows Me To China!

Uncategorized

Wednesday night and when I was in line to check-in at LAX I saw this two tall guys, they had a Canada sweat shirt. So when I got to Beijing airport and saw them again I realised–these must be volleyball players coming to the China open. My head kept working and remembered your student’s surname–Saxon so I talked to them across immigration check-in lines and asked if they were the Canadian beach volleyball team? They said yes and then I asked: is one of you named Saxon? And he shyly said yes!

So I said: I’ve just been with Dick Bount @Hermosa and he spoke great things about you and connected 1 + 1 to realise it was you!

Had to take a picture to prove the truth as it would’ve taken a great logistics operator to coordinate the meeting. They asked what I was doing in Beijing and I said: well it’s hard to be a professional athlete in an under-developed country so I am now an exhibiting artist, and they said: it’s hard to be a professional athlete in a developed country anyway!

Thank you for your hospitality Dick, I enjoyed meeting you and your family and reminiscence the Hound days!

Abrazos
