I do find it quite strange that the greatest sporting event in the world has turned into a strip show in the minds of the American public. First there is the non-stop prime time airing of women in the teeny tiniest bikinis ever made (to the point they constantly have to pick the things out their butts) and now everyone on the web is getting hot flashes over a bronze medal rower (in the four, a less important event) who apparently had some wood if you look at his manhood in just the right way. Did any of you people going crazy over Henrik Rummel’s non-erection even watch the women’s 8 crush the field in perhaps the most dominant rowing performance in history (they have won every major race going back before the LAST Olympics)?
I suppose I should be glad that we have at least somewhat equal sexual exploitation going on, but really…
I’ve never played beach volleyball but I was a serious rower (and swimmer for that matter). Unlike in volleyball, the outfits worn in swimming and rowing are all about speed and comfort, not sex appeal. So no one was asking Mr. Rummel to wear those trow to show off his prick. Every rower in the world wears that uni.
Let’s give the penis a commercial moment. Have you ever had your heart rate maxed out for 6 minutes? I am talking 200 beats per minute, to the point that the most natural thing is to vomit. Then put your ass in this little seat where there’s all kinds of unnatural chaffing. Weird shit happens to your dong. The blood flow can get cut off, it can increase. Your member can end up sideways or backwards. When you stand up you really don’t know what the heck is going to happen or where your manhood is. If you can manage to stand after an all-out race you are damn thankful.
Anyone who thinks a guy who just raced an Olympic final was really thinking about some steamy porno scene in his mind’s eye needs to be checked into a mental hospital. Sure you can see the guy’s dick. Yeah it’s kinda pointed up and probably has a litte extra blood in the Johnson. But give the guy some Gatorade and leave him the heck alone.
