    Aw c'mon, get it right. They only brought in beach volleyball in the interests of equality.

    As you've pointed out, the laydeez get all the eye candy. Whats in it for us men (and similarly inclined wimmin?). Gigantic muscular female freakazoids. Not my cuppa tea.

    (a) Be patient. The pole vault is coming.

    (b) In the meantime, click the GayNZ link. On the internet, no one knows you're not a a lesbian.

    Okay, they might've been a touch tall, but that's never bothered me - did anyone see the Polish women's volleyball team? Not beach, indoor. OMFG. My friend Ben and I were channel surfing and we came across them playing the Cubans. That was a game with something for everyone - bootylicious Cubans on one side, Aryan goddesses on the other.

    Oh come on Mark, you can also have tiny little pre-adolescent stick-figures with faked birth certificates. Geez, fussy.

    I thought that the Australian women's hockey team were positively glistening in the Beijing heat. Damian has the right idea about mestizo Cubans too. Beach volleyball is just too slow for my tastes.

    And as GayNZ highlights, the Spanish mens water polo team are damned hot...

    ha! you're just illustrating my point. all these giants and midgets, its like the circus. did you see the under-46kg womens weightlifters? the gold medal winner lifted something like 115kg! yikes

    while i'm being shallow, i found this report amusing, particularly the fourth comment. Cringingly LOLworthy

    If were going to be shallow... I'll just add a +1 on the Cuban Volleyballers.....

    Bootylicious indeed.

  • Hadyn Green,

    Obviously I"m with you guys on the indoor volleyball teams:

    And for the guys? I recommend the indoor volleyball or the pole vault, while Deadspin and Yahoo, suggest watching the Paraguayan javelin thrower.

    Not only are they...bootylicious? (Is that the term nowadays?) But there are also more of them.

    But the Cubans, although they are very pretty, are put to shame by the Italians.

    ah, dammit. i meant the fifth

    That was hilarious.

    Isn't it rediculous, all of the effort that goes into making clothes that fit like wearing nothing at all?

    As was pointed out just this week, you can use callipigyian if you so prefer...

  • Robyn Gallagher,

    The problem comes when the men come out for their matches – in singlets. "O Noes!" cry the laydeez, "we can haz beefcake?!"

    The laydeez over at Jezebel have been drooling over the shirtless New Zealand football team doing a haka.

    (Which in turn has led to a few New Zealanders having to explain to the Americans why it's considered normal and not exploitive in New Zealand for white boys to be doing an "indigenous" war dance.)

    I don't mean to threadjack myself, but I think Northland politicians have more important things to worry about than rugby.

  • Hadyn Green,

    And to jack it back: just watched Asafa Powell in his first heat and not only is he fast, he's totally smooth.

    His head didn't come up until 30m in. Too cool.

    And gettin' kinda dirty too:

    two of my favorite things: Pacific Island dance and nekkid men. #17, I have a place you can put that tongue.

    Ohh, errr, missus ...

    Dunno if this has been posted up already, or if this is the right place, but some of you might get a grin out of this:

    LOLed at those this morning. My favourite is #4. "You invade other Georgia, right?"

  • Damian Christie,

    Can someone explain this to me please? Hadyn? Is there some cost-benefit formula here, or is it always faster to stay underwater as long as possible doing that funny dolphin kick thing, rather than surfacing and flailing ones arms out in the accepted manner?

    Re the stuff article, in my experience what's worse than sleeping with someone who was hot the night before but isn't now, is asking someone out on a date in the same situation. At least with the former, you can run home and cry in the shower. With the latter you don't know until you go to pick them up, and then it's too late, you have to spent the next few hours having dinner with someone you're not in the slightest bit attracted to, and then pay the bill. I've learned my lesson on that one.

  • Mark Thomas,

    Even university dietitians are in on the olympics pervathon:

    __"I'm not surprised, dear," says Professor Janice Thompson, head of Bristol University's department of exercise, nutrition and health sciences, when, belching quietly, I return to my desk. "There's no way you should be able to eat what Michael Phelps eats. This is not even a normal athlete. I would not recommend this kind of diet for even a fit and serious competitor in, say, a 10km road race. This man is in a very, very different place to the rest of us. He's 6ft 4in and 192lb of pure joy. From a female perspective, obviously. Though I probably shouldn't say that."__

    amusing article, by the way

  • Rich Lock,

    Well, two questions have today been answered to my complete satisfaction. And funnily enough, the answer to both is the same.

    1) Who ate all the pies? (Michael Phelps)

    2) Why is there a world food crisis (Michael Phelps)

    I have to say, from an attracted-to-men perspective the men's gymnastics (esp. the all-round competition) does provide some fine viewing.
