- <strike>Brad brought up the idea of a â€˜Word of the Day Bonus Point Challengeâ€™ for Volleyball 2004. To earn the bonus point you must use the word of the day in you post prior to the posting the next dayâ€™s word (approximately 24 hours). The word will come from http://dictionary.reference.com/wordoftheday/.

EDIT: I have to edit this thread title every time Brad turns this thread into a Game: . . . . thread</strike>
As of 2009, this thread is now independant of the annual "Writer's Vollyball" game thread. It is open to any and all who wish to play. Simply use the daily word of the day (highlighted in boldface) in creative and amusing fashion. It's that easy. For examples of play, skip ahead to page 6 of this thread.
