I think you brused your left breast. Please post a pic so we can make sure.

:) Actually- the leather they make them out of softens with use. New balls are a b*tch to hit.

I think you posted a pic of everything but your head once, right mosh? or was that someone else?

you know, if you keep this up, we might be able to compile a pic of you by your individual body parts, lol.

i've always hated that sport.
hitting a hard ball with the softer part of your hand/arm always seemed stupid to me.

Hehe.. I got into playing Wallyball before playing Volleyball. I about broke my hand trying to spike the first time in volleyball!

Wallyball is played with a spongy blue kickball-like ball. It's basically Volleyball in a raquetball court, where you can use the wall. It's fast and violent! :)

Comparatively speaking, Volleyballs are MUCH harder. I've had those bruises!

I played a lot when I was in college (6/7 days a week for school) and never bruised like that. Were you playing indoor or sand?
What brand ball was it?

outdoor. didn't catch the brand, but they had salvaged it from a HS girl's volleyball team so it was school approved.

I play volleyball and my arms have never bruised like that. You probably got stuck with an over inflated ball and those can get quite painful.

Make sure you don't hit with the bone, but rather the fleshy part. Bone hits = pain.

lol, if your arms/hand hurt the most after the game, you are not playing right.

Just so you know I played it for like 10 years. Worst times are the winter morning games (about 10C). I burst my veins on my thumb every time. No, the game does not stop because of that.

Either crappy ball or you bruise easily. I've played highly competitive volleyball (college) and never been bruised like that.

Well you clearly have more experience slapping balls.

And having balls fly at his face.
