Not sure what China thinks they're gonna do by backing off every time.

This sport would be more exciting if you could kick sand in your opponents' faces.

It was far less weird than offering your ass to the president so he can slap it, which Misty May-Treanor did at the beginning of the games. So... I'm guessing they had a good time hanging out with him.

I saw some of the earlier rounds in this and I saw one match where Rogers/Dalhausser were absolutely dominant. I would imagine they'll turn it on.

I also think, in terms of serves, these guys do some pretty weird shit with the ball when they dish it up. Knucklers, top spin, setting it ablaze with kerosene. Coupled with the speed, it's gotta be pretty tough for even the pros to handle.

AFAIK, the Chinese teams train in Hainan. Maybe there's something wrong with the sand on the mainland, like heavy pollution or something?

They didn't say this during the piece but Rogers also explicitly requested that the net be made from the woven skin of rare Siberian tigers. Oh how money has changed you, Rogers.

By the way, I think it's very odd that, with the exception of the Olympics, I watch zero beach volleyball. Yet, for some reason, I know exactly who Karch Kiraly and Sinjin Smith are and think of their names anytime beach volleyball is mentioned.

#89 njingles3

Dalhausser got lucky. He just assumes Rogers will finish the kill and he plays in the sand rather than wait for a possible deflection.

Great ending to that first set. Huge choke by the Brazilians to botch that.

This Fabio guy is pretty high on himself. Of course, even growing up in Brazil, having the name Fabio probably leads to some good social defense mechanisms.

This 15 point thing is another dumb rule in volleyball.

It'd be like playing games 1-6 of the World Series as 9 inning games but game 7 would be a 5 inning game.

What if you had to use the same pitchers, then maybe I could see cutting the innings short.

I think they do it because it would be too exhausting.
