Olympic Beach Volleyball - Best...Sport...Ever!!

POST #    1240

Sure, these are world class athletes and sure, they are celebrating one of the greatest things in sport, but is it wrong to sexualize their joy? I think not! Sure the men went through many of the same reactions and emotions, but I've kindly sifted through all that for you, the reader.

Thank you Nike, thank you for skimpy uniforms. And to think that these are just Kerri Walsh and Misty May. I'm just not sure why beach volleyball isn't more popular in the United States.

Oh, yes, I don't know Photoshop very well. And it's right click, save as.

Is Misty May her real name? It sounds like something out of Boogie Nights.

tien, i cant wait till you're 60 and officially a "dirty old man." now you're just a dirty young man.

I said that same thing to Tien about Misty May's name. Some sportscasters joke that it's not really an Olympic sport - just a way to bring the dudes in. All I can say is that it works.

Hey, you know what we should do? Bring back the true, original Olympic spirit by having the atheletes compete naked! Mmm, authenticity.

Although, certain naughty bits might get torn off as the male divers do their thing. :( Yeesh, and I'd hate to think what could get tangled in the ropes of the sailboats! Okay, I'll stop.

well, if they brought that back matt, wouldn't it have to be all men? i don't need that.

and what about the winter games?!? people would freeze their members off!

I posted a tasty photo of 2 Brazilian women's team members consoling one another (they got the Silver) on my blog.
