Two experienced oldtimers in one and the same team. And they're both tall
as well. Being former Champions does not make things worse either. We know
they keep fit, cultivating and harvesting in their backyards all their spare
time. If this team can live up to small percentage of what their merits promise,
they will make many competitors suffer on their way to the finals.
Sledge is known for his Stonehenge like figure by the net. He can totally
dominate the half meter above the net when in sync with the game. However,
when lack of concentration sets in, he can become a real papier-mâché
player, barely standing his ground. But we fear the Sledge will prove an efficient
weapon in combination with...
...the Hammer. With the longest arms in Christendom, this double Champion
can dig up any ball with delicate accuracy. As a backbone in any team, little
is needed to complement him in taking it to the top. But, as with most players,
there is one obvious weakness. In Hammers case, it's his uncontrollable temper.
Little needs to be said and done to get him out of balance, by when he becomes
a Mr. Hyde with no control of his play.
