Olympic Track Cycling is on

I was just watching it in the cafeteria at the office.

I couldn't help noticing the sexing-up of this sport. All of the women were wearing these ultra-tight spandex uniforms! Why is it that, when the Men's Basketball team wears baggy, conservative dress, the women cyclists are relegated to these ridiculous uniforms for the juiced-up sex appeal?

The humanity!

I was half watching the Olympics and managed to catch the final of the women's pursuit (maybe 3,000 meter?). It was the only track racing I have seen.

i agree. most of those women should NOT be wearing form fitting clothing.

I was at my daughter's house yesterday when the pursuit was on. I was asked to explain it. When I got done my son-in-law said, "You're just making that up as you go along, aren't you?" I don't know why it seemed so unbelieveable to him.
