Weekend Recess: Is This an NBC Olympic Video, or an Adult Film Preview?

August 12, 2012 at 12:54 am (2012 Olympics, Athletes, London Olympics, NBC, Sexy, Sports, Women)

A producer at NBC recently decided to make a video called “Bodies in Motion”, showing off Olympic athlete’s bodies in various states of competition.  Unfortunatley, the music production department chimed in, adding uber-creepy porn-like music to the clip.

Critics slammed the network for what seemed like the blatant sexualization of athletes competing for Olympic gold.

NBC promptly pulled the video, but left us wondering – What were they thinking?

Via LiveLeak:

Someone at NBC Apparently Approved This Creepy, Porny Video of Female Olympians.

Have you barfed yet today? Get thee to a drain of some kind before watching this video the pervs over at NBC have put together in order to show their appreciation for Olympic bodies of the 2012 London Games.

Unfortunately, to NBC, showcasing the “Bodies in Motion” of the XXX Olympiad means taking footage of conventionally attractive female athletes competing in sports that require them to be scantily clad, slowing it way down as the camera lovingly caresses their butts, breasts, and bouncing ponytails, and playing some soft core porn music over it.

Video: Jamaican Gold Medalist Usain Bolt Stops Interview to Show Respect For U.S. National Anthem

August 8, 2012 at 10:27 am (2012 Olympics, All This For a Damn Flag, Barack Obama, Classy, Gold Medal, Jamaica, London Olympics, Michelle Obama, President Obama, Sprinter, Usain Bolt, World's Fastest Man)

After winning his 100-meter semi-final sprint at the London Olympics, Usain Bolt was being interviewed by a TV reporter.  It was at that point that the world’s fastest man morphed into the world’s classiest man, interrupting the interview to show respect to the U.S. national anthem.

As Gateway Pundit points out, this is more respect than the current President has for our national anthem…

And yes, Michelle.  All this for a damn flag…

Weekend Recess: Vote – Are Women’s Beach Volleyball Uniforms Too Sexy?

August 4, 2012 at 9:16 am (2012 Olympics, Athletic Skills, Body Parts, China, London, Olympics, Sexy, Tian Jia, Women, Women's Beach Volleyball)

There is a controversy brewing at the London Olympics and it doesn’t involve judges, steroids, or tanking matches (we’re looking at you Badminton) – it involves bikinis.

Critics are claiming that not only are the women’s beach volleyball uniforms too sexy, but that photographers seem to be focusing an inordinate number of their images on certain parts of the female anatomy.

Are the Olympics women’s beach volleyball photos too sexy? That is the claim being made by some people who find that too many pictures of these female Olympians are filled with crotch shots and close-ups of women’s derrieres in tight bikini bottoms, according to the Huffington Post just yesterday.

… Although female beach volleyball teams are no longer required to wear bikinis while competing in the Olympics, most of them chose to continue the tradition of skimpy two-piece swimsuits for the 2012 Olympics.

It should come as no surprise that the women’s beach volleyball photos of competitors in bikinis come across as far sexier than photos of Olympians who chose to compete while fully clothed. While wearing a bikini, everything from hand signals to a congratulatory hug looks sexy. No one is blaming the women for being too sexy. The question is whether the photographers are gratuitously focusing on certain body parts or poses when they snap their photos.

So what do you think readers?  Too sexy, too photographed, or not enough of either?  Tell us in the comments section!

Video: Mayor of London Gets Stuck on a Zip Wire

August 1, 2012 at 11:43 am (2012 Olympics, Boris Johnson, Funny, Funny Video, London, London Olympics, Mayor Boris Johnson, Union Flags, Victoria Park, Zip Line, Zip Wire)

Olympic celebrations took a turn for the worse this afternoon in London when mayor Boris Johnson attempted to gin up excitement by careening down a zip wire whilst waving a pair of Union flags.

Problem being, he never made it to the end of the line, instead dangling above the ground a good 20 meters shy of his destination.

Mr Johnson was featuring as a “special guest” in Victoria Park, London, to ride the zip line, donning a hard hat and two Union flags as he attempted to sail down.

Instead, he ground steadily to a halt on the wire about 20m from the end as the wire sagged, and was left dangling inelegantly in front of a watching crowd.

The Mayor spent around five minutes hanging from the drooping line as spectators took video footage and photographs of his misfortune.

When one asked how he was feeling, he replied “very, very well thank you”, before shouting: “Get me a rope, get me a ladder” to bystanders.

Best part of this video (seen below) is the woman asking “Is it a bird?  Is it a plane?…”

Mayor Bloomberg was seen shaking his head and saying, “Man, did that guy look ridiculous or what?”

Weekend Recess: Model Javelin Thrower Leryn Franco

July 28, 2012 at 8:19 am (2012 Olympics, Athlete, Javelin, Leryn Franco, Leryn Franco Hot, London Olympics, Model, Olympics, Sexy, Weekend Recess)

Our video last week of Michelle Jenneke’s racy warm up routine was such a hit, we’re going to throw another bone to our younger single male audience…

This week’s Weekend Recess is an Olympic edition.  She may have finished a distant 51st in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but Leryn Franco became an internet sensation, ranking only behind Michael Phelps among internet searches for Olympic athletes.  Why?

It’s clear that the 30-year-old from Paraguay is popular for more than just her javelin-throwing technique.

A model and beauty pageant contestant, Franco has participated in the Miss Bikini Universe pageant, released her own calendar, and was the runner-up to Miss Universo Paraguay in 2006. She has brought a bit of glam to her sport as well, posing in heels with her javelin for a photo shoot and wearing earrings with bling during competition. 

Franco has fared far better on the magazine and Internet hot lists than in international javelin competitions. She appeared in the 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition and was most recently ranked No. 64 on AskMen.com’s “Top 99 Women” of 2012. She also made Maxim’s “Sexiest Women of the Olympics” list and has an endorsement contract with Nike.  

Franco isn’t expected to compete for Olympic medals in 2012, though she has improved her personal numbers.  Her personal best is 57.77 meters, a far cry from other javelinists (is that a word?) who have record tosses of 71+ meters.

Long shot or not, Franco promises to make quite an impression in London.
