Come along for the journey!

You would not believe just how long the folk in Tel Aviv can hold up play between points in a mates game of beach volleyball. Arguments about the score, the strategy, or the quality of the sand, all serve as weapons of passive aggression to frustrate the other team…actually everyone involved. 'Rann' A friend of JP's and professional football analyst, commented whilst the banter continued on the other side of the net, "That's the problem in Israel…everyone's got an opinion". And yet again, we see that sport provides us with all the social commentary we need to reduce a country's issues into a trite allegory. Stereotypes are such time savers.
