Beach Volleyball

July 31, 2012

Men or women’s beach volleyball as an Olympic sport causes my eyes to roll every time.  And, I don’t get the bikini.

    I saw about six seconds of an interview between some NBC person (John King, maybe) and some members of the women’s (US) beach volleyball team. And their excuse was that clothing would impede their movement. And it is like, well, okay, so does that mean you cannot have a few extra inches on that “bathing suit” you are wearing? Even those awful speedos cover the full butt cheek (unless I have really missed something and I don’t think I have).

    The Olympics make me roll my eyes period, but that is probably just sour grapes because I am so awful at sports.

      It’s a bullshit excuse. They are “selling” themselves. I heard one of them say that their bikinis may be sexy but that is okay, because the people (men) may come to see the sexy but then fall in love with the sport. Whatever.

    Yep. The only reason that shit is televised over all the other sports they could choose to broadcast is the T & A quotient. It’s only there to titillate the mens. Otherwise it would be relegated to late night or 10 am when no one is watching. Meanwhile the good stuff like tennis is given no (free) airtime.
