It's been an unbelievable season for Sean Scott and John Hyden, give or take one bad chicken sandwich, but Saturday was a rough time for one of the top U.S. beach volleyball teams. Scott and Hyden were bounced into the losers bracket of the Hermosa Beach Open after Matt Prosser and John Mayer beat them in the double-elimination tournament of the Jose Cuervo series, 16-21, 22-20, 15-13. The only thing preventing Scott and Hyden from winning every U.S. tournament they've entered this season is Scott's bout with food poisoning two weeks ago in a National Volleyball League event in Miami.

Manhattan Beach's annual Charlie Saikley Six-Man Volleyball Tournament has long held a reputation as one of the biggest and rowdiest beach parties in the South Bay. But that all changed this weekend. When 60,000 people and 200 teams packed the beach with coolers and kegs last year, city residents and businesses said they'd had enough. This year, officials tightened the reins and placed the emphasis on volleyball instead of partying. The result: a smaller, more controlled beach event Saturday and Sunday.

Sean Scott loves this year's reincarnated version of the Manhattan Beach Open. But the pro beach volleyball player wanted to prove he's not alone in that opinion, so he asked a random nearby player for his two cents. Eyal Zimet, who has played in 58 pro tournaments, happily shared them. "This is the first real tournament this year," he said. John Hyden, Scott's partner on the open's top-seeded men's team, said when players first saw the stadium seating, sponsor village and fans start pouring in, the reaction was simple: "All right, we're back.

Kurt Rambis isn't a very good beach volleyball player. "I'm awful," he says, laughing. But the former Lakers forward and NBA coach's son, Jesse, is pretty good — a professional, even. On Friday at the Manhattan Beach Open, Jesse Rambis and his partner, Kevin Wong, the second-seeded team in the tournament, beat Travis Schoonover and Nils Nielson, 21-19, 19-21, 15-8, to advance to the third round. Wong is a Lakers fan, especially of the Showtime teams the elder Rambis played for, but Wong was pretty impressed with the junior Rambis after playing alongside him for the first time Friday.

Fans lined the edges of the beach volleyball courts, lounging just inches away from players, easy distance for playful banter. "So," one fan began, "are those shorts pink, or salmon?" "Umm … salmon," joked a player, a long thought later. The 50th anniversary of the Manhattan Beach Open, considered the crown jewel of beach volleyball events, was certainly intimate Saturday. It was also old school. No fences, no seating, no international or Assn. of Volleyball Professional rules.

The most storied tournament in beach volleyball was in jeopardy on Friday — but only for a few hours. Less than a week before play was set to begin at the 50th Manhattan Beach Open, the Assn. of Volleyball Professionals announced that it is no longer financially viable and canceled the rest of the season. The timing of the AVP announcement meant little time for the city of Manhattan Beach and the California Beach Volleyball Assn. to save the tournament. "I think the most important information to get out to everybody is that the tournament will happen," CBVA President Chris Brown said.

USC's Tony Ciarelli wanted to try it, but the attempt seemed too risky. All Saturday night, the freshman outside hitter had fired rocket-fast deep serves at Pepperdine. Now, at 20-19 in the fifth game of the championship match of the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation men's volleyball tournament, Ciarelli pondered a change-up. "I was thinking it was way too risky," Ciarelli said. "And then I thought, 'Why not?'
