The Olympics

God Bless the Olympics! I'm behind the athletes 100%!


Yes, I firmly back the beach volley ball team! Nike's done a tremendous job on the uniforms.

And for those of you that want to also support other athletes besides the ones I am behind above, try the water events:

They only come every 4 years...that's the Olympics!

You should check out Peter's blog....he has pictures of Danish beach babes playing volleyball.

And hey, I support the Water Polo team, too!

VE said...

jacki - Glad you're supporting the water polo team. I'm a very big supporter of the women's beach volleyball team. Oh, and I checked out the beach shots on Peter's blog...ah to be a teen again...

iamnot said...

Ok, I'd have to give up my man card if I didn't point out that those volleyball finger signs translate (roughly) to, "Insert here."

MJ said...

I guess if I played volleyball 24/7 I would look like that too. I wonder how you get that job?

VE said...

iamnot - Bwahahaha...I knew somebody would point that out. That's good advice too...

mj - It helps if you are 6'2"!

padraig said...

Don't forget the synchronized swimming! The one event everyone makes fun of still going strong, since '84!

Kurt said...

I completely agree!

cathouse teri said...

I would hate to come only every four years!

I was listening to Dubya talk about why he is in China. He said, "Because China is a big, important country."

VE said...

padraig - It's so true. Have you ever tried to do those goofy things they do? It's not so easy...I prefer to watch from pool side with a fruity rum drink...

kurt - I'm glad we agree on the whole support issue!

teri - That would be waaaay too long, wouldn't it? ;)

cathouse teri said...

Shit, man... four days is too long!

VE said...

teri - I agree with that!

Kanrei said...

This year I am watching mainly due to it being HD, my first time watching the games, and let me say I love gymnastics now. I just wish they were older so I didn't feel like a perverted pervert. I can handle feeling like a pervert, but not a perverted one.

HeyJoe said...

How about that shot of the gal picking her Nike suit out of her ass?

VE said...

kan - Gymnastics is kind of a perverted sport anyway. First of all, the women are past their prime at 17. 17!!!! Secondly, most of them end up injured in their sport. Thirdly, it's all subjected...based on judging.

heyjoe - That's a GREAT shot of an athlete in action. Note that the need to pick the suit out of their ass is actually a fan-based feature of that partiuclar Nike thong...

Megan said...

Nice pants.

Michelle Ann said...

How much longer until they are naked...seriously?

Anette said...

you know those head-things the polo hunks wear? When I was young, I played under-water-rugby, we used to wear them to seperate the teams.. looks charming doesn't it?

Yes, my name is Arizona said...

Well, damn. I wish my ass looked like that! I suppose I should be thankful it doesn't....all the attention I'd get would distract me from my important life's work....

Beth said...

Thanks for that last picture. It's always a pleasure to be reminded that such bodies do exist in the real world.
As for only coming every four years? (So to speak.) There's always the Winter Olympics in 2010 - but it's just not the same, is it?

Quickroute said...

mmmmmmm! Volley Ball just became a whole lot more interesting!

VE said...

megan - Glad to see you're enthusiastic about our athletes...

michelle ann - I don't know, but it's hard to wait...

anette - It looks like some sort of head condom to me... ha ha ha

arizona - Keeping an ass like that is a life's work...

beth - Yeah, you don't really see the curlers and cross country skiers in thongs...

Serena Joy said...

I'm certainly going to do my part and support water polo. Those guys look like they could use some support. Of course, you can't blame them for not smiling if they only come every four years. I wonder if the volleyball chicks would be willing to help them out with that?:)

leelee said...

water polo rocks..and lets be honest here...is there any better body than that of an Olympic swimmer...on the mens team?

YEEEOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWW!! I'm a phriggin' PHELPS PHAN now...

phor real!


Bodies in motion..it's poetic really!
I love the Olympics!

Oh yeah...nice bums! ahhh to be young again!

Lori said...

Dear God, what I would give to have an ass like that..........

Lori said...

He, he, he - I know the French relay team was running their mouths but one of the members had some serious business going on in his speedos!!

lime said...

i'd like to thank you for the equal opportunity posting.

"come every 4 years." now that's just sooooo sad.

VE said...

quickroute - Yes, it certainly got me to attention ;)

sj - You are such a giver that way, aren't you? ha ha

leelee - Those bods come with a lot of work, don't they?

lori - Sounds like you've been checking out some serious business...try not to overwork!

lime - Thanks for pointing that out. I know that it would be foolish of me to not include one for the gals being that my readership is more female than male. I may be crazy, but I'm not stoopid!

Hale McKay said...

Great and funny post, Ve. To top it off all the comments are entertaining too!

I just noticed your parodies of Annie's Song. I love it!

VE said...

hale - My commenters are THE BEST! Sometimes the comment area is the best place to read! I was worried when I saw you had commented. I thought you were gonna say "Well I did an Annies Song parody back in '85 on my blog just like that one..." ha ha ha

Alex L said...

I hate the olympics... but there are some good bits, perky, fleshy good bits.

Matt-Man said...

Some of the chicks on the Argentine Field Hockey team were pretty hot. I mean, as far as Field Hockey players go. Cheers!!

VE said...

alex - See, even you can find something good out of the Olympics! ha ha

matt-man - Oooh, Oooh. I'll have to check out that sport. Well, for the sportsmanship of it all of course...

Dee said...

and to think I used to play beach volleyball LOL Had I known I too could have buns of steel I would have kept it up ! Instead I keep waiting for buns of cottage cheese to become all the rage!

Queen Goob said...

Thank you Baby Jesus, A-men.

justacoolcat said...

My wife is protesting the men's volleyball players since they wear too much clothing.

Memarie Lane said...

I don't think those briefs are flattering at all. They diminish the shapeliness of the hips and make the buttocks appear double-cheeked.

C said...

LOL! Brilliant! Love it! You're on a roll here with all these posts!

Alex L said...

If your after hot field hockey players you cant go past the Australian womens team... and thats got noting to do with national pride, its more the fact that most of them make me want to take my pants off...

Anne said...

i'd rather have the polo team picture without the ear muffs, thank you.

VE said...

dee - Eventually buns of steel always seem to rust...

queen goob - Yes, always good to say a little prayer for our athletes

justacoolcat - I found that interesting too. The women are practically in thongs and the men have shirts on? Not that I'm complaining mind you...

marie - You're right, they should remove them completely!

c - But what if it ends? What if I can't think of anything funny ever again?

alex - Sounds like a worthy research projects. I'd better not staff out that one, I'll have to handle it personally...

anne - Expose their ears? Scandalous!!!!

Uncivil said...

Ahhhhh yes......Women's Volleyball....the only reason to watch the Olympics!!!!!
I'd like to bite that Brazil chic on the cheek and let her drag me to death!

VE said...

uncivil - That's a very noble way to die!!! ha ha ha

Maureen said...

Ugh... just catching up on a few posts all at once.

Nice balls. Thank you.
