ecuavolley
 n.— «What’s to blame for the moral rot? It’s not drug dealing or gang wars. In Danbury the vice, according to local officials and longtime residents, is volleyball. Specifically, “ecuavolley,” a form of the game so beloved in Ecuador that when Ecuadorians began migrating en masse to this small working-class New England city, they built backyard courts all over town, some big enough to accommodate up to 150 fans and players.» —“Serving Up a Conflict” by Nathan Thornburgh in Danbury, Conn. Time Aug. 1, 2005.
