Victoria's Secret? Volleyball!

I am an Olympic fanatic. The opening ceremonies are must-see for me. Even sports like archery, shooting, and trampoline (yes! trampoline!) will do for a late-night insomnia session. But I've noticed a disturbing trend lately in a few of the summer games, namely track and volleyball:





Now I understand why volleyball has suddenly become a prime time hit.

Have you seen what the men wear to play volleyball and run track? The shorts are so long they're practically pedal pushers! They still seem to be able to run fast and spike balls. I just can't grasp why wearing dental floss undies would make it easier to jump and sprint. One would think the mega-wedgie alone could cause major problems. I know I would miss the ball coming straight at me while I was dislodging my Nike Swoosh.

Do I have a point or am I a hopeless old person who's just a JELUS LOOSER?

There's a cosmic irony in the fact that the volleyball players' "uniforms" are getting skimpier while the swimmers' suits are increasing in coverage.

Just looking at her butt has me tugging at my undies. How uncomfortable is that?

I'm LOVING the trampoline events! I always wanted to learn to trampoline, but there was only one trampoline class for beginners when I was 6. It was fun, though!

No kidding, Precie. The swimmers are going to in head-to-toe scuba suits in short order.

Spy, the trampoline was way cool! Unfortunately, I've reached the age where you never put your butt over your head.

I do not think you wrong in pointing this out, and I've thought the same thing about why beach volleyball has suddenly become soooo fascinating despite the obvious excellence of the teams. That final game was teriffic! It's more the bikinis on the gals than their ability.

Robyn said...

Which is kind of a shame, Written. They're really good athletes.

Maybe once I get my butt implant (see my TT) I'll look that good in a bikini bottom.

Or not...

Well, they do say female joints work differently...
Heh.
I wonder if it distracts the judges.

Robyn said...

Beth, it isn't an implant that I need. I wonder if they do butt reductions?

Hee, Bernita. Is that ball out, or does he just want to see her jump for it again?
