If you’re a fan of commercials, gifs, or tacos, then you’re probably familiar with the Old El Paso hard vs. soft shell debate and the brilliant face behind the question: "¿Por qué no los dos?", or “Why not both?”. If not, watch the 16 second YouTube clip before reading any further; this girl has settled basically every argument on the internet since 2007 and is here to set you straight too.

You’ve been wondering whether you should play indoor or outdoor volleyball this year. We’ve all been there; little did we know that the solution has been in front of us all along. Cue Los Lobos “La Bamba”. You can actually have both! Stop burrito-ing around the bush and swan dive into these awesome offerings like your favourite bowl of pico:

Option 1) We like to refer to the first option as “VX”, or Indoor/Beach Volleyball. This is a hybrid, which you can’t really go wrong with because you’ll play both formats within the same season! To put into corntrast for you, you’ll start the season warm and indoors, like the inside of a cheesy gordita, then move outside about half way through and soak up the sun like a baked, not fried, tortilla! Hey fair weather players, I’m taco’in to you!

Option 2) The second option worth a gander is the Grass-ias league. Grass incorporates rules from beach, such as not having an attack line to worry about, while having some of the indoor perks, like having a solid floor for jumping, blocking, and hitting and overall less mess. In this league, you’ll see a variety of gear, like knee pads, shoes, socks, bare feet, and sunscreen. You’ll love the variety of choices mower each week.

With these two unique offerings, I think it’s safe to say we can want it all, and we can get it all! Now the big question: Which do I choose? And the answer (say it with me now): "¿Por qué no los dos?"
