The sheer brutality of volleyball. No, really.
When you think of violent sports, your mind probably goes straight to boxing, rugby, American football and such. But volleyball? No, volleyball conjures up images of the Copacabana and buff shimmering tanned bodies, posing in glaring sun. Prepare to have that image well and truly shattered.
Turns out volleyball may have something a lot more in common with a sport like ice hockey after the massacre at the Iowa state high school volleyball championships. Not only does one of the team get well and truly put down, but a spectator also gets wiped out by the very same ball. Flukey throw, or that girl is an assassin in training. Either way, it proves that no one is safe in any sport. Except maybe the cutest sport ever, Rabbit Hopping.
