1 Thank you, I needed that.  I'm literally on the edge of falling out of my chair laughing.

2 I have to admire the effort and diligence that went into making basically one gag work over the course of two several-minute videos. Sketch comedy at its... well, "finest" may not be the word I'm going for, but something-est.

3 I had seen the volleyball one first, the soccer viddy a few weeks later, though that's not the order they were released.  I think Soccer is the more successful of the two: Sterling has more character in that one.  In Volleyball, he's too quickly out of it.

Don't get me wrong, it's still hilarious, but there's a teeny bit of sympathy involved with Soccer that isn't there for Volleyball.

4 Favorite version of the volleyball is this: the first time I saw it, tagged as "Spectacular Volleyball Blocks!" it took a moment to recognize the parody.
They do good work.

5 I couldn't get through the first video. There wasn't anything funny about it. I'm astounded that the coach kept sending him out when he was clearly injured; don't they have a second-string goal keeper they could put in?

6 I'm assuming that it was entirely a gag, and that it didn't really happen that way.  The fact that he shows up in the volleyball video in his soccer uniform is a hint, as is when his coach drags him off the field by yanking on an arm, and then he's back in the net seconds later.  But it's the commentary from the announcers that had me in tears.

7 Steven, Studio C is a comedy group from Brigham Young University, and they're the folks behind the Scott Sterling videos.

"Wait, BYU?" I hear you ask, and I've gotta say "yup, BYU."  North Carolina doesn't have a men's volleyball team.  Neither does Yale. However, the Elis have one thing in common with BYU: team colors.

Anyway, this is a parody, not real events.

Unless, of course, you're making a funny, in which case, yup, ya got me.
