  1. RE: Texas Public radio Asian Volleyball Tournament Revives Cultural Tradition of Street Ball: I definitely agree that it is very interesting to know that over 1,000 Chinese American volleyball players from the United States and Canada participated for a game known as 9-man on Washington, D.C. I, too, wish that I was given a chance to be there and see all of them.
