Women in bikinis

So, I've been kind of switching the TV over to the Olympics every once in a while, just to see if there's any equestrian events on (I KNOW), or maybe that young woman from Flint who is boxing, or heck, even some synchronized swimming.

Nope. Women's volleyball.

And I mean, I get it. Kind of. Women in bikinis.

I mean, obviously, NBC wouldn't be showing nine trillion hours of women's volleyball if it hadn't proven to be a money-maker. If it didn't bring in the ratings.

But ... really? When porn is available so readily on the internet, 24/7? Men are getting off on watching women's volleyball? It's like back in the day when the ladies' underwear section of the Sears catalog was stashed under Junior's bed.

I don't know. I just don't get it.

Want to empty a bar? Stick your head in the door and yell, "Cat fight! Parking lot!"

I never understood that fascination, either.

I don't totally disagree that the bikini factor is playing a big role here, but the women runners pretty much wear bikinis too. The divers wear swimsuits (one-piece). I think it has more to do with the fact that the US won gold in beach volleyball at the last Olympics, so people get excited about it. I've been watching it when I can catch it, and I don't care too much how they look in their bikinis :)

Ha, and now I hear that we're guaranteed a gold medal, because the final game is going to be USA vs. USA. Whaaaaaaa?

and Kate, yeah, EVERYBODY's in their skivvies.

I was wondering about that. How did we end up with two teams? Seems a little fishy.

Maybe this will help even the score.
