Pros behaving like ordinary people

Is this even beach volleyball related?

What if a camera followed us around capturing all those little but precious moments in our lives? Even the ones we consider as insignificant. Those times when you experience the wonderful raw awkwardness that is humankind. Here are 10 pics of your favorite beach volleyball players in ‘real-life’ situations (with matching commentary, of course).

1. When you’re at the cinema and the announcement ‘please put your 3D glasses on’ comes on. Don’t finish all the popcorn during the trailers. *@Ermacora fumbling to find glasses in the dark*
