When you think about gulf shores, what do you think of first? Which aspects of gulf shores are important, which are essential, and which ones can you take or leave? You be the judge.
A Gulf Shores restaurant has been accused of illegally showing a boxing match three years ago without paying for commercial broadcast rights.
The lawsuit, filed this week in Mobile's federal court by California-based Garden City Boxing Club, seeks $200,000 plus court costs and attorneys' fees from Mud Bugs and proprietors Kamil Miarka and Sharon Miarka.
"Piracy of intellectual property has become one of the largest theft crimes in the United States," said Andy Nelms, a lawyer representing Garden City. "This is nothing short of piracy."
"Defensively, I thought we played solid," said Gulf Shores coach Wing Brett. "Offensively, we knew that Spanish Fort didn't have a go-to player that could hurt us unless we made mistakes. When we did a better job on our blocks tonight, we had better digs. I thought we passed well too. We had only seven passing errors in three games so that's a lot of points that they had to earn. That's what we wanted to do coming into the match."
Overall, Gulf Shores had 33 kills on the evening with only 19 errors.

Spanish Fort coach Barclay Kercher said her team wasn't at its best.
"We had 14 kills as a team," said Kercher. "We didn't mix up our shots enough. We hit the ball right into Gulf Shores' defense tonight and they picked up every ball. Gulf Shores played with much more ball control than we did."
Gulf Shores will now host Fairhope today at 5:30.
"The story is still the same," said Brett. "We just have to make sure we have ball control and serve well. We will get some hits but we have to make sure we give the other team an opportunity to make a mistake. Volleyball is a game of errors. On most of the points in a game, there's a mistake. We just try to reduce our mistakes. We don't have a 6-foot-1 kid who will just punish you."
The Lady Dolphins will then head to Montgomery on Saturday to participate in the annual Trinity Lady Wildcat Invitational.
Now that wasn't hard at all, was it? And you've earned a wealth of knowledge, just from taking some time to study an expert's word on gulf shores.
