Hey Phoenix, what are you up to this weekend? Well, if you were at the Volleyball Festival at all then you were in for a real treat!
Taylor Lautner showed up at the Phoenix Convention Center this weekend to support his younger sister Makena and her Volleyball Club team in their annual volleyball tournament. Oh, and he brought longtime on-again-off-again girlfriend Sara Hicks with him… so we’re in a fight right now.
No word on how Makena’s team did/is doing but I assume they’ve gotta be pretty damn good if they are going to out of state competitions, so that’s pretty cool! The whole family turned up for Makena’s round of competition games which started Friday, so there seems to be a daily courtside Taylor Lautner Watch going on via the internet. Thanks to the magic of Instagram and Twitter there are dozens upon dozens of pictures of Taylor sitting with his family during the games, cheering his little sister on, and taking pictures with fans on his way in and out.
That’s right, he’s taking pictures. Not only with the teams involved in the competition courtesy of what I’m assuming is last minute coordination with security, but he’s been stopping for pictures on his way in and out of the convention. Why? Because he’s Taylor Lautner and he’s awesome and he loves his fans almost as much as he loves his sister. Almost.
The last day of the tournament is tomorrow so here’s to hoping Taylor’s sister and her team take home a trophy or three! They give out trophies at these things, right?
Also, can someone ask Taylor if/when he’s headed back to Boston to film more ‘Grown Ups 2’? I need like, exact dates. I need time to coordinate, you know.
