What is up at the Beijing Olympics?

Who hasn't been watching the Olympics? Got to love the Olympics. Especially when you think these athletes have been training every last day of their lives for just a couple minutes of glory. Or, you know, training every last day of their lives to fall off the balance beam.

As far as the Chinese female gymnasts ---

China really has the nerve to say they are 16? Why is Bela Karolyi the only one who says outright they're lying? The girls have baby teeth! They're 12 years old.

Teeth tell age, like horses.

Mens' swimming --

I speak for every gay man when I say: bring back the speedos! These new shark suits, they cover everything up. When it comes to Phelps and company, I want to see torso and thighs, ok?

Less world records, more skin!

The only thing more hideous than the new sharksuits? Host Bob Costas' hair-do. What is going on there? It's either a really obvious dye job, or he's got a muskrat up in there. Who does he think he's fooling?

The Chinese gymnasts?

Couldn't agree with you more. Those 'slippery' shark suits may allow them to break all kinds of world records, but how good do you feel doing that if you know its only because of your suit?

Shark suits that 'cheat' and cover up too much skin = NO!
Speedos that show your religion = YES!

To Anonymous, thank you for a picture I thought I would never see of Michael that good. As long as the suit is waist(well below)down I don't mind. Everyone has the same suit they don't really give but just a tiny help in their speed.

Hey Jesse -

Didn't you see the men's synchronized diving?
Plenty of skimpy speedos in those events (often in slo-mo close ups).
There's still more diving to come ...

Chinese men's gymnastics = drool. But I must be faithful to my newly declared boyfriend, Raj Bhavsar. What a piece of man meat!

And to second Tony, divers do still weary (VERY skimpy) speedos.
