This Insane Match Point Is The First And Only Male Volleyball Clip Worth Watching (Mind = Blown)
I can say with 100% certainty that I’ve never seen Men’s Indoor Volleyball on TV at any time outside of the Summer Olympic Games. Even if this sport was picked up by ESPN and shown on The Ocho I’m still not sure I’d ever watch it outside of the Summer Olympics because I’ve always considered it to be a sport for tall dudes who aren’t athletic enough to play basketball.
Listen, I get that it’s a popular sport in parts of Eastern Europe and in other pockets throughout the globe, but there are a hundred other sports I find more interesting and they’re already on TV (like competitive Bass Fishing, for example).
Don’t get me wrong, this Match Point is exciting, and it’s some of the best Men’s Indoor Volleyball I’ve ever seen. But that’s like saying it’s the ‘best stale potato chip I’ve ever had’ and I don’t even eat potato chips. Are you picking up what I’m putting down?
If entire matches were as exciting as this single point I’m sure there’d be an audience for this sport here in America. But the fact of the matter is that it’s usually just some pretty tall dudes whacking around a ball because they gave up on their dreams of playing basketball at some point.
I don’t mean any of this as a slight to men’s indoor volleyball players, so don’t take this personally if this is your chosen life profession. I’m just here to speak the cold, hard truth about it being a J.V. sport.
