How About Some Olympic Equality…

Since I’m stuck not doing anything too strenuous for a few days, I’ve been watching the Olympic Games a LOT and this morning was men’s beach volleyball.  Now these guys are fun to watch no matter what country they’re from, but what’s the deal with the American uniforms?  Casey Patterson and Jake Gibbs had on leggings under board shorts and tank tops.  And they lost to Spain…  People are saying it’s just too much material…

Then this is what Kerri Walsh Jennings and April Ross wear…If the women are okay with it, I don’t mind, but how about some equal opportunity viewing for us ladies?  At least the guys should be shirtless, right?

  1. I agree with you. The women should be shirtless. Oh, sorry. I don’t see very well.

      3. Some of these sports are just silly, too. I can barely watch some of it. I’m kinda cranky when it comes to the Olympics!

  3. Wow. Yeah, that’s quite a difference. Those bottoms are so skimpy, I’m just thinking of sand getting in. Yikes. I think the men should be in speedos if the women are!

    On another note: I hope you are well and things are going fine. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Vic, so far, so good. No news yet, but the biopsies went well. So a few days of taking it pretty easy. Yeah, I’ve read the women can choose from different outfits, but I guess if I was in that shape, I’d wear that grocery shopping, lol 😀

      1. LOL! Grocery shopping in a tiny bikini seem safer than playing beach volleyball! 😛
        I’m glad things went well. 🙂

  7. Ya’ know, I’m heterosexual, but those girls’ bodies do nothing for me, no matter how little clothing is involved. As for the guys, meh. That was disappointing. I’ll get on board with the leggings as the blame. 😃

      1. Not my intention, but those two girls need to eat a cookie …or twelve. 😃

  8. I was disappointed in the beach volleyball – well, duh. But the gym games, especially Team USA – dang. Here’s to the 39-year-old first time Olympic player. SO what if we lost to Italy – we played hard! Yo, Anderson baby!

  9. A lot of those athletes’ uniforms are hideous, across the board! Poor guys – your moment of glory, and you look terrible on tv!

  10. Here here! Show us some man skin, and get those girls a bit more bottom coverage.

  11. If I did watch women’s volleyball, I swear that I wouldn’t focus on their exposed cheeks. Even if it were beach volleyball and there cheeks were covered in sand. Not that I’ve ever witnessed this, but just saying.

  17. Diane, even though I haven’t been here since last Saturday you have been on my mind.
    I now know why, you had biopsies done. My prayers are sent up today Sunday, and fingers crossed. xoxo
    Yes, men should be able to compete with less on! It certainly is possible for polar bear swims in Lake Erie and other bodies of water in less clothes! Come on now!! I am like that every movie I watch where women shed clothes and rare and few between men do! 😉
    Going to head backwards and leave messages.
    Good dates this week, same guy two nights, but leaving at ten was a little too early, if you know what I was thinking. . . Polite and gentlemanly with some great kisses. 😉
