I imagine any article with both the words "cheeerleader" and "bikini" in the title is worth a ping. :^)

So, the bikini-clad women's beach volleyball players are upset about the fact there are are bikini-clad cheerleaders, or about the fact that the bikini-clad cheerleaders are straight?. ......and that most of the males in the audience are there to see them instead.

I have seen the cheerleaders and I can tell you, those pictures are worth seeing.


The issue is actually pathetic. People griping about Cheerleaders.

They are wearing as much clothing as the women volley ball players who are complaining!

If that's the case, the cheerleaders had better not show up at any women's softball games

I'm a girl and I watched it to see what the controversy was about. The girls are dancing during the breaks. They aren't out there when the volleyball players are out there so I don't understand what the problem is.

NO no no!

The "cheerleaders" are the Canary Island players themselves, between sets!

"It is disrespectful to have *other* girls in bikinis dancing."

So, she's ticked that there are dancing girls in bikinis distracting the crowd from volleyball playing girls in bikinis.

Disguating! Sinful! It's against the LORD!

Now I'll have to see all of them in order to properly evaluate the depth of sin. Thanks.

I wonder if they have these same feelings when they play in tournaments around the world where they have Miss Hawiian Tropic contests and other bikini clad events to get the fans to the tournies.

"It gets pretty rowdy but I think it's good for the sport," said U.S. Olympian Elaine Youngs a few minutes after she and her partner, Holly McPeak, won their first match Saturday. "I compare it to golf and tennis. Their fans are bored. We give the fans something more to watch."

Skinny is O.K., but the players have chests like boys.

Ooops. I missed that.

And it changes my perspective.

What if a referee made a call in favor of the Canary Island team because he liked their performances?

I'd guarantee you that many of such complainers are probably catty women who are lardasses themselves.

I watched the women shotputters last night.
Yes, I am thankful that they weren't wearing bikinis.

You're entitled to your opinion, of course. But, after careful examination of these photos of said player, I cannot locate a jackass...
