The 20-foot-tall fence between the United States and Mexico makes good political theater. Why not a sports venue too? At least that was the bright idea of Brent Hoff, editor of Wholphin, a new DVD magazine from Dave Eggers' McSweeney's combine. Hoff took a film crew to shoot a game of international volleyball played across the border fence at Tijuana. LA Weekly writer Joshuah Bearman tagged along and even got in on the action. In its "Border Lines" column, the Wall Street Journal revisits this "first-ever game of international border volleyball."
