I believe tall people are happier than most. They can see really well at all events, and for fear of getting beat up, nobody really messes with them very often.
Some tall people don’t need to rely on their height for respect because they’re kind of famous already.
A lot of the photoshoots we do are on the beach. I like that, because before I have my photo taken with the athletes, I build a little mound of sand and stand on it, as I’ve done here. Guess I should have built a bigger mound.
Even the volleyball athletes I’ve worked with that aren’t super tall are still giants in the sports world.
I guess after awhile you just get used to the fact that you’re always going to be in the front row for group photos. I can accept that. Recently I was reminded that at my age you actually start getting shorter. Hmmm… might be time to get involved in some other sports. Horse racing maybe—I heard the average jockey is only about 5′ tall.
