Olympic Fever

Like most Americans glued to the Olympics the past few days, I have been enthralled by Michael Phelps and his now historic gold medal count. I mean, the guy seems to be unstoppable. But aside from watching the Olympics, particularly swimming, for the athletic accomplishments they're achieving, like Viv, I'm in it for the scenery:
I mean, ladies, do men's bods get any better than a swimmer's? Why would you not be watching these guys?

But, thankfully, it's not just the swimming: there's the diving (thank you tiny little Speedos -- never thought I'd say that!), the gymnasts, the soccer players, even the kayakers are eye candy! The Olympics are a feast for the eyes!

And certainly, the men aren't the only ones garnering all the physical glory. The other night, while we were watching the women's synchronized diving, my husband commented: "Wow, they have nice asses." I couldn't even argue with him because, well, they did have incredible asses. So, with all this physical and athletic perfection paraded in front of us in mostly skimpy attire, my one question is this: Why do the women in beach volleyball play in bikinis while the men in beach volleyball play in shorts and tank tops? C'mon, Olympics, those guys have to be sweaty in those itchy tank tops! Let them play without shirts!

What'd'ya say ladies? Shall we petition the Olympic committee for a better outfit for those guys? I mean, shucks, it's for their own comfort!

I have to agree with your husband. I did watch the women's synchronized diving last night. Woooo!! They sure do have nice asses! I admit it. When the volleyball came on, I turned it off.

I vote we reinstate the uniforms from ancient times. Let them play nekkid (oiled down of course)!!! :-)

LOL my husband and i were just discussing the difference in the volleyball outfits between the men and women - what is going on there??

Jess said...

I'd vote for that....

Although I've been really busy scoping out the soccer hotties and have only caught about 5 minutes of the men's beach volleyball.

Mrs. K said...

yup- agreed- there are some hot men in swimming...even the ugly ones look hot for some reason.

P.O.M. said...

I'd sign on that dotted line.

Now, where can I find me one of them??? Perhaps I need to get my butt to China to find a husband.

I am a fan of our women's olympic beach volleyball team. They have really nice assets

teacherwoman said...

ahhh, the eye candy. Yes, yes. yum yum.

Mendy said...

Isn't the Olympics this year just awesome! Like those pics of Phelpes. Just amazing. Yeah, the beach volley ladies are wearing barely anything.

L*I*S*A said...

Yes, we shall petition the IOC to allow the men's volleyball players to wear tiny Speedos.

Imagine the ratings?

Misty and Kerri and their many inches of exposed skin can't touch the men's swimming and diving bodies.

Though, women's volleyball is a nice change of pace for my hub... because I am generally admiring the men in all sorts of sports, namely baseball(while he thinks I am actually into the GAME), so its fair for the tables to turn. ;)

Ohhhh Holy Mother you know I agree. Swimmers have the best bods. Not too big, not too thin. YUM-O
