    1. Watch synchronized men's diving? (I hope there is nothing wrong with that.)

    2. Get angry that women's beach volleyball is not being played in bikinis?

    1- No. You must close your eyes and say a prayer to god to save their souls. Next you must write a post to a political website to sponsor a House bill to ban the practice.

    2- Yes, that's fine...

    1. No, but because it's such a dumb sport (along with trampoline gymnastics, etc.)

    2. Depends. I'm glad a lot of them are covered up.

    The whole time watching men's synchronized diving, this movie went thru my mind: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=de63_wBWZVM


    Not that there is nothing wrong with that.

    I dont think it exists at the olympics nor should it be watched by straight men.

    I had the opposite reaction.

    Was happy the male synchro divers were wearing speedos and wondering if watching women's volleyball is is OK.......

    If the diving is synchronized, that's okay but if the MEN are synchronized as you suggest then it's not the Olympics you are watching but some other channel ;)

    I usually just switch to white water canoeing or something else, but yes, I have occa watched this for lack of anything else. You typically focus on the synch and execution aspect and not their bodies. I don't see how this is anymore gay than watching single diving or weight lifting or men's floor gymnastics (or whatever you call it).

    Are you having doubts about yourself ... at this age , lol. :)

    They should rate Olympic events as movies are. Synchro and any other men's diving should be MA.

    I still can't believe beach volleyball is an Olympic sport. I'm sure they allowed it just to increase TV ratings. Girls in bikinis is the main reason men watch and guys without shirts is why women watch.

    The women indoor volleyball players are the best looking on average of all the female athletes!

    By far!!!

    Does it make you confront your inner feelings?

    Why should tennis be an Olympics sport then?

    Because tennis is a real sport that has been around for centuries and is played by tens of millions of people around the world. How many people in the world even live by a warm beach in which they can play beach volleyball? Regular team volleyball is already represented. We don't also need beach volleyball. Same reason we don't also need to have beach tennis in the Olympics.

    A beach is a much more natural setting than clay or grass courts

    My wife of 25 years has recently hinted that I gush when I see nicely built men.
