As much as we love this city, we cant help but wonder what it would be like if we could enjoy the amenities that come with living by the ocean. Your chance to get a taste of coastal life takes place during the AVP World Challenge: USA vs. Brazil. While the three-day event wont bring fish tacos or sea breezes to the Valley, it will showcase world-class beach volleyball. The competition, which kicks of at 8 a.m. Friday, will pit some of the United States finest players including Olympic gold medalists Kerri Walsh and Misty May-Treanor against the best that Brazil has to offer.
