  Monday Morning Mirth  

Like many around the world, I’ve been enjoying the OLYMPICS!

My favorites: swimming, volleyball and…

Fencing! (Even though it makes me really nervous, which, but of course, is the fun!)

But what’s making me more nervous than getting poked in the eye with a foil?

Michael Phelps SWIMSUIT!

Now ladies.

I need say nothing more.

But the Chicago Tribune (and thousands of other outlets: 259,000 and counting google results) HAVE mentioned it and made a slideshow for us. (Thanks Trib!)

Now this begs the question…

  1. When did swimsuits return to leg coverings? Women fought for *years* to wear less in the water…?! ;-)

  2. Bonne Marie says:

    That’s funny, Marg! Until you mentioned it, I did not even NOTICE there were leggings on them legs… ;p

  3. Darci says:

    Can I just say I love a swimmer’s body. He so rocks. To see his pure joy in winning is inspiring. There is nothing wrong in winning.

  4. Remember that if you’re fencing, you’re wearing a mask! The masks with the clear visors are polycarbonate, so they’re tough. (My Dork boy is a fencer, so we’ve been watching as much as we can.)

    I very much enjoy the half suit…it is a CRIME to cover up that torso! ;-)

  6. Seanna Lea says:

    I’ve been reading articles for weeks about the new suits being doping via technology, so Speedo made a whole slew of the suits available to the Olympic hopefuls.

    Phelps is amazing with the new suit or without.

    I keep hoping for a photo taken from the back. I do love me some good firm cheeks!

  8. Wow oh wow, love a swimmers bod. Long and lean with nary an ounce of fat on that beautiful young man. I hope he enjoys every moment in the lime light and I hope too, that he turns all his gold in to a meaningful life and future! He is an absolute joy to watch!

    Swimsuit? Sorry, I was distracted by those abs and pecs and….what were you saying about a swimsuit?

  10. Tallgrrl says:

    Next to the dancer bod and the basketball player bod, the swimmer bod is also a fave of mine.
    I like the tech of the new swimsuit. I especially like it when the guys take their arms out and roll the suit down to…just above…oh my.
    I’ll be in my bunk.

  11. Ann says:

    The guy could rock a pickle barrel, just sayin. I love whatever spandex getup the guy has on. Quel physique!

  12. Beth says:

    Think he needs to wax??

    Here’s another shot I found before the games began:

    Oh my! I could blush.
