Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor did us proud at the Olympics this year. The two Californians by birth brought us home the Gold. And just one weekend before the games began, Manhattan Beach put on their own famous "Six Man" Volleyball Tournament, which would definitely win the gold if tournaments would compete each against each other. The games are a mix of "world-class players, top college stars and disguised AVP pros" in costumes as if it were Halloween. There's nothing like it and after we visited last year, we had to make sure we shared what was seen this year, thanks to three Flickr users (Nataline/metaphora, Mark Hoffmann and David J. Sullivan).
