Shoeless

During a University of the Pacific women’s volleyball match against U.C. Davis at UOP’s Spanos Center recently, Pacific’s Samantha Misa dug down deep to return a hard spike by the Davis team. As the ball rebounded skyward from her hands, Misa’s momentum continued to carry her toward the floor. Her left leg was outstretched and her knee locked into place. It looked painful.

Then, from my vantage point, it looked as if her left foot and ankle became badly deformed, and I feared some sort of terrible career-ending injury. But instead of a blood-curdling scream or even a painful grimace, she began to stand up with a smile on her face. Apparently as she fell, her left heel dragged across the floor, pulling her shoe off but leaving her foot and ankle intact.

Misa, grinning with embarrassment, managed to get her shoe back on, and Pacific went on to win the point.
