volleyball…

volleyball after the break…

volleyball…

so i’ve been watching the olympics only because it’s cheap porn (oh, yeah, right… “i watch it for the scintilating competition”) & i noticed something… wtf is up with volleyball (regular, not the beach volleyball)?

ok, back when i was in school, you only scored a point in volleyball whenever your side served. otherwise, even if you “won,” you only regained the serve. nowadays, you can win a point regardless of whether or not you serve.

so what’s the point (pardon the pun) of serving? the side that’s serving is now screwed because between two good teams, the side being served is going to be able to hit the ball back so you rarely win on the initial serve & now can only win on your initial defense. however, all the opposing side needs to do is simply return the serve.

i know, i know… “but that’s how tennis is.” well, then play tennis because volleyball has now become “6-person tennis.” really, there’s not too much difference between tennis & volleyball now, is there? also, what’s up with people serving from the freakin’ stands nowadays?! aren’t you supposed to serve from the back of the court?

anyway, that just annoyed me. stupid rule changes…
