It may have arguably been the first time in this summer's Olympics a tape delay would have been useful.
On Wednesday NBC's underwater camera captured a womens water polo player briefly exposing another player's breast to shocked reaction from viewers watching live at home.
'You see a lot of suit grabbing going on underwater,' an NBC sports broadcaster said after the control room cut to the live underwater swimsuit fight between Spain and the U.S

first timeI heard about this and I am in the loop.
What are you, sleeping on the job again, Cletus? You’re supposed to be ON this matter for us like a duck on a junebug...
Just a cute little boobie!
CAN SOMEONE SHOCK ME WITH A PIC???
Depends on the athlete. It didn't hurt Michelle Jenneke. Then again. maybe without athletics she would have been destined to be a double-D.
Water polo is an olympic sport?!
Gee, if only I had TV...and nothing fun to do. ;-)
The reason the TV ratings are up is the same reason they were up in 1980. Idiot in the White House. Americans want to feel good again.
—I heard that an Olympic cyclist was hit by a media van and killed, and the story if there was one was itself killed, hmmmm—
Not an “olympic” cyclist. Just a regular one.
That story has been reported in USA Today, Wall St Journal, Yahoo and all the British papers.
The man, who was riding a bicycle, has not been identified, so we don’t know if he was an athlete or someone attending the games, or a worker there, or what.
So what did people do when a National Geographic accidentally flopped open to show a Congo woman’s breast? Did they flip out and have a heart attack?
Gah, the world we live in.
"...from my vantage point all I saw was bubbles and and and....wait, I'll go back and check again"
I want to hear about the issues of Olympic shooting contestants and Britain’s paranoia gun laws. there was a news article about that.
I’m not sure why it wouldn’t be. It’s certainly more physical than something like baseball.
Appears to be a rather small...story.
At least it was unedited, unlike one of the Russian’s floor routines. Apparently NBC edited out the biggest gaffe to “keep up the suspense” on who one the women’s team competition in gymnastics.
By the way NBC....ONE medal ceremony a night? Anytime an American athlete gets the gold and a chance to sing and cry with their hand on their heart I want to see it. That’s always the best.
Pardon me while I expose your ignorance ;-)
Water polo is the first and oldest Olympic team sport.
Water polo has been deemed objectively and subjectively the toughest, most grueling competitive sport.
I have played, coached, officiated and ref’d water polo teams and run a state championship winning high school team.. I know of what I write.
Any of those USA women players could out swim, out wrestle and out maneuver you in the pool, and do it for over 30 minutes. AND give you a Speedo wedgie that would make you wish you were kissing Michelle instead. And there is nothing you could do to stop them.
I encourage you to learn more of the sport.
Last comment: ask the Navy Seals about water polo ...
The swimsuits—both male and female—are specially designed to have less drag than the human body in the water. They have banned the suits that were made of a foam-like material that filled with small pockets of gas. Those actually caused bodies to rise in the water and resulted in 20 world records in Rome at the world championships in 2009.
All told, drag is reduced by roughly 8-9% using these suits.
Once Drudge posts it, I’ll accuse him of soft-porn again.
I’m surprised at this. The swimsuits the USA team wears come all the way up the neck and zip in the back to make them tight. There’s no scooped neckline to grab on to. Maybe other teams don’t wear the same kind of suits.
But what’s really weird about the USA suits is they are cut like thongs in the back - no lie. Many of the USA girls have ample physiques which helpful in a sport where maximum buoyancy is a big asset. So maybe the swimsuits are cut for a more normal physique and they just don’t cover the ample backsides of some of these ladies.
Check it out next time they play. I was amazed.
