No, that’s not a spelling error. The name of the movie was Side Out, two words. And that was by far not the worst error. But I digress.
Recently I was reminded of the classic 90’s movie, Side Out. I say classic because it is by far the greatest volleyball themed movie ever made. No movie buff would ever dispute that. Volleyball buffs on the other hand, while enjoying a movie about their passion with recognisable stars that they could point out (and laugh about their acting ability) often have a little trouble with it. Not the movie itself. It is a fairly standard sports movie with the good guys winning against all odds at the end. But there is a little sticking point about the last point of the climactic match. The last point is scored on the worst double hit of all time. It is so bad that it doesn’t even look like a set. At least that is the way I remembered it.
Once reminded of the movie, I just had to see that last point to see if it was really as bad as I’d remembered it. I figured it was sure to be on You Tube. So I tried every search string I could thing of, including ‘worst set ever’. To my surprise it was nowhere to be found. I eventually tracked down the movie (which I enjoyed) and saw the set.
I’ll let you judge for yourself but I can say that from now on anyone searching ‘worst set ever’ on You Tube will find this scene.
