This is Why I Hate the Olympics

Disgusting meathead jocks bellowing at their own victory:

Please spare me your veiny poor-sportsmanship. Ew.

I've been trying to come up with some concrete explanation as to why these Olympics are leaving me so cold; thank you for this images, which crystallizes that feeling perfectly.

Genius, as usual...

(now that star-studded haltertop on the left - with the right shoes, that could be fab!

And they call this kind of savagery "sports"...

I think the low forehead on the guy on the right sort of explains everything.

I think that's when the American team took the relay gold, after their oldest teammate (32, sigh) just pulled out enough ahead to beat the French team by a finger.

I think I'd have cheered too. Not as rippededly, but cheered nonetheless.

Yeah as a former competitive swimmer, a hell of a lot goes into training and competing. I don't not begrudge anyway the joy in their own success. Or the success of their teammates, especially in a swimming. Yes it's a team -- but they're really all individuals competing mostly with themselves. There are no assists in the swimming pool.

I am sort of digging those one piece suits for the boys...

Not. Not really.

The whole thing makes me sick, it really does. This is about narcissism, Coca Cola and Visa.

And Polo by Ralph Lauren. Don't forget about that!

I just want to know if one of these guys is gonna test positive for some banned substance. How sad is that?

Did you not hear what the French had previously said about "smashing" the americans?

I can appreciate swimmers, even with the obv taste in those who don't shave themselves for hydrodynamic reasons, but the guy on the right pains me.

I'm so glad our tax dollars paying for this rather than something useless, like universal health care. I just can't tell you how swelled up with pride I feel when some young fellers like that take home the gold. Gosh!

I am so sick of hearing about the one on the right: his gigantic double-jointed flipper feet, his disgusting 12000 calorie diet. I find him repulsive and this picture illustrates why.

Pish posh. Those boys worked hard and they are freakin' specimans. Also, to paraphrase laineygossip, Phelps wears clothes well. If you guys won't climb them, I will. LOL. - Liz
