Just back from a very nice and relaxing vacation with perfect weather. There was no internet but there was cable so I caught some tennis but I was jonesing for some women's sports this afternoon and so quite pleased when I caught the Hingis match at the Rogers Cup. Not much to report except that the commentators like to say "drama" a lot when there are injury timeouts and there was a not so subtle implication from courtside commentator Justin Gimmelstob (isn't he still a player?) that the female players exaggerate injuries, thus creating the drama.
Anyway, the point of this was that after the match I found the finals of the AVP Chicago with Misty May and Kerrie Walsh won easily. I guess I haven't watched beach volleyball in a while, but I was shocked by the skimpy swimsuits. I have, to a certain extent, gotten over the fact that they play in triangle bikini tops. All of the women in the court didn't really need a lot of support so these worked just fine. Well fine except that after falling or stretching they had to tug at them to make sure they were covering all the appropriate places.
But most of the tugging was down below. Except it was futile because there wasn't any fabric to pull. The bottoms didn't have enough fabric to get bunched up anywhere. It all looked rather uncomfortable. When you're playing hard it seems the last thing you want to be doing is constantly adjusting your uniform.
So why then do they persist in wearing these itty bitty "uniforms"?
I think I will just leave that question rhetorical.
