2012 Olympics – Loving it! Best way to watch? Online. You can pick little-known events not focusing on USA athletes and replay often.
FYI, I’m a 100-percent heterosexual male. I watch ANY event with women, even soccer. Most men, including me, are primitively and unapologetically fascinated by the mature (not little girlish) female body in motion – a fact wise wives and girlfriends already know. (We’d pay to watch you walk to the bathroom in your “draws.”)
And brothers, where else can you watch a glorious diversity of fine, athletic women from all over the world, in motion and many in skimpy clothing, without having to “make it rain?” (Sisters, don’t hate – I know they’re all serious athletes. But I’m still a MAN, dammit!)
My favorite events, in random order: trampoline (the greatest!), kayaking, handball, weightlifting, volleyball, cycling, gymnastics (high bar, rings, floor exercise) badminton, table tennis, pole vault, high jump (my event in college), sprints.
Finest women? Volleyballers; sprinters (Dawn Harper’s a favorite); pole vaulters; tennis players (Serena and Venus, who looked like old-school Jamaican dancehall star Patra in her dookie braids); synchronized swimmers; field hockey players.
Finest team? Dominican Republic women’s volleyball team, by far. My, my, my…
Who’s missing? African women’s teams. Most African countries can’t prioritize funding and developing world-class teams. Could you imagine a women’s beach and indoor volleyball team from Nigeria, or a synchronized swimming team from Ethiopia? Brothers would follow them from first competition to last…
We can only look; the athletes are taking action. According to England’s Daily Mail newspaper, this Olympics could be “the raunchiest games ever,” with the International Olympics Committee giving out 150,000 condoms during the 17 days of events – an average of 15 condoms per competitor.
They should change the Olympic motto from “Faster, Higher, Stronger” to “Longer, Stronger, Safer”…Wonder if all the condoms are the same size?
