Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

All about the ratings.

Overheard between Olympic officials at the end of the 1992 Olympics:

Official #1: Well that was good. The ratings could have been better, but I thought it turned out okay...

Official #2: Yeah, about those ratings... have you seen our precious metal costs lately? They've gone right through the roof!

Official #1: Well, part of the problem is that we've got so many events. Maybe if we cut some...
Official #2: Actually, I was thinking of adding one, and using the popularity of it to charge more for the franchise bennies.

Official #1: Add an event!?! Are you frickin' crazy!?? Which event?

Official #2: Actually, it's two events: Men's and Women's Beach Volleyball.

Official #1: How the hell will that help?!? We've already got Men's and Women's Volleyball.

Official #2: Uh, have you seen the uniforms?

Official #1: Make it so. Make it so right-the-hell-now.

Official #2: Already got it slated for '96.

And thus it was, 11 year-old daughters around the world began to ask, "Why do they have to wear thongs?"

And fathers reply (wincing), "They're not thongs."

Not exactly anyway...

If they had to wear those gym outfits we did in junior high NO ONE would watch.

I dunno. A couple of years ago, while exercising in the ASU gym, I decided next lifetime, I'm dating volleyball players.

I rather agree with Jeff; I think that looks more painful than anything.

Sand and a wedgie up your butt. Terrific.

I've said so elsewhere, but if you are wearing yards and yards of sand-catching fabric, it seems the garment-abetted abrasions would be an impediment to a player's focused performance, to say the least. If there were more comfortable costumes to wear for this sport, I'm sure they'd be wearing them. And also, so long as the teams which represent a country are selected based solely on performance, then I don't see how what they are wearing matters so much.
