OLYMPIC SOB


As the Olympics draw to their end, 
this DesperateAngloHousewife is wondering where her next wee buzz will be coming from....

I know I should be having a good old rant about sportsmanship, international cooperation and team spirit but instead I am going to be completely honest. ...All those bodies beautiful!

Am I the only 40-something who has been blowing bubbles into her Chardonnay during the men's diving? 

Was I the only creature on the planet who was reaching for the smelling salts as the men swimmers came out announced and pranced across to their starting block whilst unzipping their sweatshirts to reveal not just the most heavenly of six packs but also shoulders to weep over?

Of course one can wax lyric over the grace of the pole vaulting, the panther speed of Mr Bolt, the incredible concentration of the archers, the tenacity of the walkers...

Did anyone else notice the female athletes, their tone and all of that in their " undies?" I did have a moment's fantasy of myself sprinting around the circuit in my Marks and Spencer's hipster knickers.. An image far too scary to dwell on or render public for that matter.

Time for a walk methinks...


49 comments:

  1. Love comment about women athletes. I also wondered what they were doing out there in their undies.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Yes yes Susie, I am with you. You know my views on the beach volleyball already. Some of those six packs on the female athletes were enough to make you think thoughts which I am sure are not at all in keeping with the Olympic spirit....

    ReplyDelete
  3. If the undies are what it takes to bring in the crowds....how long before the IOC decides to go back to the traditions of ancient Greece and forswear clothing altogether...just a national flag painted on the back...

    ReplyDelete
  4. @ Corin, no I do believe your thoughts to be very in keeping with the Olympic spirit...except that I don't think they played beach volley up My Olympus.?

    ReplyDelete
  5. @ dear Fly, indeed one never knows just how far the IOC will stretch itself!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Totally with you over the men divers. Heavenly, an understatement.

    ReplyDelete
  7. My OH was waxing very lyrical about the Russian lady polevaulter, apparently pictures taken from the rear as she was jumping were quite something...

    I agree with you about the swimmers, their muscles were all in proportion - I could never go for a cyclist, those giant thighs and calf muscles - ugh!

    ReplyDelete
  8. @ Victoria...well maybe if the rest of their bits and bobs were in proportion with the thighs, calves etc?

  37. You still blogging?

    Am running out of nice recipes to use!

    Can't believe that your last blog was all about the tummies of Olympic sportsmen when it should have been about the tummies of men (and women) who have recently moved to France? You should be ashamed!

    Get back to blogging about cooking; Susie, you know it's the right thing to do!

    All the best
