The Top Gun Volleyball Scene

Top Gun Volleyball

What is the most memorable volleyball scene in movie history?  I would have to say it belongs to Ice Man and Slider taking on Goose and Maverick in Top Gun.

Just four dudes who happen to take off their shirts and play a little sand volleyball in the hot California sun.  Not only that, but a bunch of random guys are sitting around watching.  Sounds normal.

You are also led to believe that Maverick can hold his own out there despite Tom Cruise being nothing more than a hobbit.

I wouldn’t give Goose and Mav that good of a chance of beating Ice Man and Slider.

And you have to factor in Maverick’s mindset.  How focused is he on setting Goose when he’s about to go see some hottie for their first date.

He must not have thought ahead.  He’s riding a motorcyle.  Where can he put the change of clothes after he sweats it up?  No problem he says, I’ll just rip this shirt off and that will keep it clean.

And why no shorts?  Seriously, the way these guys are dripping sweat it’s 90 degrees out there.  Why do you even own a pair of jeans out there?

This just shows how bad ass Maverick is.  Not only is he one of the best pilots the United States has to offer but he knows he can wear anything he wants over to Charlie’s place and still take her breathe away.

Why is Wrangler using Dale Earnhardt Jr and Brett Favre when this could be the best spokesperson of all time?  Yeah, I wrote Wranglers playing sand volleyball and kicked ass.  Then I hopped on my bike and went over to bang my boss.  If I saw an ad like that you bet I would hop on over to my local Wal-Mart and pick myself up a pair of Wranglers.
