Look, it’s called Top Gun, not Top Volleyball. “Terrible form,” Bourne says just a mere nine seconds into the clip. “So far, the setting is very marginal,” Crabb adds in a more diplomatic tone. The hand setting would later be described as “absolutely tragic,” which is a scathing indictment. In fact, a lot of the setting is not even within the legal playing rules of beach volleyball. Too bad none of the spectators on hand were certified referees.
It just gets worse.
“This defense is pretty bad,” Crabb says. Bourne just shakes his head with a smile of disbelief on his face. To the credit of Maverick, Goose, Iceman and Slider, Crabb would later go on to give a little bit of credit to the defensive dives, stating that they are, in fact, “decent.”
“It’s funny because they’re really intense like they’re really good at it,” Bourne adds. “They’re so bad.”
