    There is already regular "wearing clothes" volleyball on the schedule.
    It is definitely an interesting choice for a medal competition. But I tell you what. It really does look difficult to me. The same game with far fewer people on each side and in sand. I'm amazed they have rallies at all. If I was playing, the other team would probably score on every point.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Bama, those are olive wreaths for winners, a tradition dated back to the ancient Olympic games. It's only fitting Greeks are bringing them back.

    They didn't show him on the tv yesterday, but they did mention him while I was watching the springboard mens synchro diving.

    I don't know a whole lot about diving, but that was an exciting final for me and a great gold for Greece, anyone else see it?

    There will be US swimmer in the final of the mens 100 free.
    Quite the shocker considering the strength in depth of the US team.

    When did this tradition start? Has it always been this way?

    I don't know, it makes ME uncomfortable watching them (not because the bikinis are pretty skimpy, but because it looks like it would be uncomfortable!) When you're participating in sports the last thing you want to worry about is making sure that your underwear/bikini isn't riding up.

    Seems like it would have been more sensible to choose something like the cute "boy short" swim suits for women.

    Anyone else curious about this?
    I agree with your observations, except, where are they going to ride TO? Those suckers are already as far "up" as they can go.
    I think the boy shorts idea is a good one too. I'm not sure how much better the people are supposed to play with these rigs but I'd bet they'd be better at the game if they weren't in major pain.
    I'm not really too interested in this competition. I would hate for them to eliminate it though, for Paulie's sake.
