thanks for reminding me about the fact i have volley ball tics for the olympics.
you mean multiple tics for a match or single tics for multiple matches?
i wonder if there is a volleyball/tennis/other rally going on indefinitely in a parallel universe somewhere.
In other volleyball news I stayed on a commune last summer and the hippies loved playing volleyball, despite an almost scornful attitude to almost all other ball games / sports. They claimed that this was because of the teamwork / group spirit that is inherent with volleyball. I said it was more likely that it's actually just easy to get to a relatively good standard and not look like the inept bumbling crusties that they would look like on a football pitch.
affecting Ray Wilkin's accent....'my word!'
Not sure I understand volleyball.
I know nothing about this sport.
Why didn't they just curb their reflexes when the ball might have been going out?
not count as a touch by the defending team?
He actually yawns.
I meant row above and to the right.
Jesus christ, that was awesome!
Sub-thread: women's team sports are only in the current decade being taken seriously from infancy up, and over the next 30 to 40 years we will start seeing women playing professional sports in men's teams, especially in sports where sheer physical strength is not the deciding factor (e.g. cricket)
but the current second highest rated comment still depresses me.
