Highlight of the Week – A Very Zog Engagement

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“I started playing Zog volleyball in Hoboken during the Fall season of 2013, Debra and I had been dating for about 9 months. It is likely that watching me play volleyball came a distant 3rd to exploring some of Hoboken’s fine restaurants and getting to see her boyfriend, but Debra dutifully attended many Zog volleyball games. I feel safe in saying that she was the #1 Zog fan. She learned all of my teammates’ names so she could properly cheer for them and learned the volleyball vernacular. Throughout the next four seasons, Debra resumed her status as #1 fan by stepping up her cheer “prop” game. It started out with the Volley Llama poster. She took her creativity to a new level with the Cream of Wheat noise makers. Lastly, but not least, she brought pom-poms for last season’s playoffs. You could say Zog was a big part of our relationship…

So it should come as no surprise that the day I had chosen to propose (Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11th) I also had a volleyball game scheduled in Hoboken. Now I know that Debra is very understanding but I certainly didn’t want to push my luck… I e-mailed my team and told them I couldn’t make it (for only the 2nd time in 2+ years of Zog volleyball). Of course things don’t always go as planned… Our captain e-mailed back and said we only had 4 players coming and 1 of them was limping quite badly. It was the last game of the regular season and we needed a win or 2 to make the playoffs. I told them I would see what I could do…

Nov. 11th arrived and I had everything I needed (parental permission, a shiny ring and the courage to go through with the biggest decision of my life). I’ll spare you the lengthy details but we spent the day together and I made a concerted effort to keep Debra on her toes. Every detour we took she wondered if there was another surprise waiting or if it was just another decoy. We finally made our way onto the pier in Hoboken and I got down on my knee and asked her to marry me. It was 7:45 PM, we were newly engaged and she says to me “Wait, do you really have a volleyball game tonight?!”. It might not be the most romantic thing to do after you get engaged, but the game was at 8 and we hurried across town to the Boys and Girls Club. The first people to hear that we were engaged were my Zog teammates. One of my best friends is also my Zog teammate… two of my Jersey City teammates were on the opposing team that night… Jen the ref has known us for 2+ years and watched our relationship grow.. and of course my Hoboken team is full of new friends. It might sound weird but Debra and I both thought it was very “us” that the 1st people to know about our engagement were our Zog friends. We won the match 2-1 and clinched our playoff spot. The wedding is set for September 24th of this year. It was a great outcome all around.”

“Having Captained teams for coming up on ten years, I must say that the highlights are clearly the people.  Although the roster may change from season to season, the new players tend to mingle with the old and friendships are ignited.  Former players will still to this day come and watch their old team or revel in our legendary bar closing post-parties.”

Highlight of the Week – From Fourth to First

“After pulling off a win in the last game of a dismal regular season our team was lucky to go into the playoffs as the 4th seed.  We had nothing to lose, seeing as how we had lost to all the other seeded teams, so we came out loose and looking to have fun. All the pieces of the puzzle seemed to fit perfectly that night, including some lucky breaks.  We beat the top seeded team by 2 scores, carried the momentum into the Championship game and didn’t look back. After years of coming up short in the Top Division, we finally did it!!!  Shout out to our playoff MVP’s Lauren Downey and Greg White!”

Highlight of the Week – New Team, New Fun

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“This summer my regular Zog Team decided to take the season off, but I still wanted to play.  So I helped recruit a new squad – Go Dig or Go Home.  This new team was a mix of players who I’ve met throughout my time playing & reffing with Zog.  While everyone is a good player, we wanted to form a team that put the emphasis on FUN rather than wins and losses. We’re having a blast getting to know each other and learning how to play well together, including experimenting with new formations and plays.  While I still love my other team, this has been a really great experience… you can see how much fun we’re having in all of the pictures!”

Highlight of the Week – A Highlight Two Hours Away

What is your ZogSports Highlight?

“When I moved to NJ in 2012 and reunited with my college friends, I was really hoping there would be a football league for us to play in, after playing together through college.  Finding out about Zog and the exceptional league manager […] could not have worked out better for us.  Zog […] had a football league offered in the winter, spring, summer, and fall which my friends and I played in every single season from 2012 to currently in 2015 – highlight being South Orange Summer League 2014 champs.  I had so much fun and felt such a bond to my team that this current spring season, even though I moved to PA I still commuted the 2 hours back to NJ for every game on Sundays.  The first thing I’ll do in my new location is to look for the local Zog football league to join!”
