Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part III: Life's a Beach


BRAD: Commander, the grunts want to do "Enlisted vs. Officers" volleyball.

KEVYN: Bad idea, Lieutenant.  If the Officers lose, it hurts credibility.

The Enlisted team has a larger pool of potential players, and much more raw physical talent in that pool.

BRAD: Oh.  Mostly I wanted to know if you were going to play, 'cause I already told them yes.

BRAD: Should I tell them we can't...

KEVYN: *interrupting* No, no, no.  Backing down is worse than losing.  We'll just have to find a way to win without making it look like we cheated.
