Little Eyes Beware

I have been watching a fair amount of Olympic sports. Today I would like to talk a little about costuming and in particular the outfit that the Bob Sleigh guys and gals wear. They can jazz it all up all they like but it still is skin tight spandex. I figured that they must surely wear something underneath to hold the goods in place. You would think? Well apparently not or at least one guy does not. My jaw almost hit the floor when after the Russia Three run, the guy got out of the sled. It looked like a scene out of the movie Blades Of Glory with Will Farrow. Poor Mike was watching with me. He had a confused look on his face as he tried to process what he was seeing. I clued him in. He just about fell on the floor laughing probably more because I noticed and said something. I said: "Hey that guy has a oopsie whoo hoo" He was thinking the guy was well endowed and that maybe he had stuffed himself like dancers sometimes do. I told him that it was a very odd way to stuff himself. You don't expect to see that on a Olympic telecast. I guess the camera man was not fast enough or maybe he was. I wonder if they will edit it when they rebroadcast later tonight? I told Mike that maybe they did not notice. He says "It is pretty hard not to notice, no pun intended."Anyway, I checked on Google to see if anybody else picked up on what we saw. I did not find anything about it. That does not mean that there is nothing on the subject. I just am not sure what to enter in the Google search? How do you word something like that? This is the sort of thing that comedians will run with for a long time. However, I did see photos of some Bob Sleigh gal who had the seat of her pants rip out. She was not wearing a stitch under her costume. Seriously! Nada! I have decided that this is an embarrassing sport to watch. It is not for the delicate.

Later, it happened again only with the Germans. I kid you not. It must be common. This time Kent saw it. He thought it was a wardrobe malfunction. He is in denial.

Nobody comes here anymore.

I am going to trick everybody into thinking this blog is popular.

Seriously.

I need to get a life.

Christine said...

Or maybe I should go to bed.

Since I don't really have a life, I guess I will just go to bed. Good night.
