Questions About The Olympics

How do the male divers keep those tiny little bathing suits on? They're already cut so low; it seems like when they hit the water at however-many-miles-per-hour, the suits would fly right off.

Why do all the American female gymnasts have severely receding hairlines? (Personally, I'm thinking anorexia, but that's awfully mean-spirited of me.) They showed a team interview last night, and most of the gals had hairlines somewhere around the tops of their heads. Oh, and I had to laugh when that one gymnast was talking, and she's all, like, "We TOTALLY support (whatever her name is), (who was standing RIGHT BEHIND the girl who was talking), even though she blew her routine and made us lose the Olympics." Yay snark!

WHO is that, um .......... person doing the human-interest stuff? Last night they had, um ...... her? ...... eating weird food. All I can think is, well, I know it's supposed to be a woman, but I think she started out as a man and made a little side trip to Sweden.

Yeah, I wondered about the bathing suit thing, too!

I'm sort of embarassed to say this and maybe it's very un-American of me, but I have never really liked the Olympics or had any interest in watching them. About the only thing I *will* watch is the diving and sometimes the gymnastics. Other than that, I could take it or leave it.

Yeah, I'm not really into it either - I guess I was just too lazy to change the channel last night. (My remote is broken and I have to actually GET UP AND WALK TO THE TV to change the channel - oh, the heartbreak!)

Plus, since I am not a guy or a lesbian, I really don't give a rat's butt about women's beach volleyball, which is what seems to be on 90% of the time.

P.S. - I have nothing against lesbians! Honest! It just seems that they, and the (straight) guys, would be the target demographic for women's beach volleyball.

Just today someone said to me nobody would watch women's beach volleyball if they wore t-shirts instead of skimpier tops.

(Hey, thanks for reading DS, and thanks for the mention in your last post! Glad you liked it!)

It's easier to keep on a tight Speedo-type suit than it is baggier boxers with a loose waistband. Divers have to have them fit tight to minimize contact with water and splash. You will see the less fit guys tug up their tighties under the water so that they aren't pulling up their drawers on international TV. Personally, any sport that requires televised shower play isn't doing it for me, but my daughter loves it.

I am having Michael Phelps fatigue in a serious way. He's fabulous, he's got double-jointed knees, his dog snores...I mean, hell, I know more about him than I know about some of my own cousins.

I think I'm going to faint - SERIOUSLY - Jess Riley read my little blog??!!! I am stunned. Honored. Thank you!

And Bridgett, Michael Phelps has double-jointed knees? Really? How does he walk? I'm picturing him trying to walk and being all floppy like a cartoon character. Come to think of it, he already kind of looks like a cartoon character .......

The Missus and I have been using the olympics as a threat since it began...

"Keep it up and I'm putting on womens' beach volleyball."

"You do it and it's mens' swimming all day tomorrow."


Those gals should move to thongs...for the freedom of movement.
