Volley of the week:: Footie keep-up ... on a beach ... in bikinis ... with Brazilian background music. Heaven.

That camera person doesn't do a very good job of following the ball.

Why on earth did someone film this collection of scantily-clad athletic ladies? They're rubbish. I have to keep watching, to remind myself how poor they are.

Any joy I get at watching this is cancelled out by the creepiness factor of someone actually shooting this footage in the first place.

I find it quite amusing that this is posted in "Navel Gazing".

I think that I just went blind...

That camera person doesn't do a very good job of following the ball. Well, the camera person had to keep their faces out of the shot to avoid needing them to sign a waiver. That's why.

chico, we're getting old. Look for My Chemical Romance or My Goth Laundry to release a B-Side with that title which their label spends millions promoting, culmunating in a spot on whatever replaces "The O.C." in the hearts and minds of youth mavens during the Fall/Winter of 2008.

Is that a challenge?

Buzz. Kill.

Assuming it is a public beach the camera(person) didn't need a waiver or permission. Assuming they're all of legal age. Assuming that if it is Brazil, rather than merely Brazillian music, they're all women. Assuming you weren't being sarcastic. :)

I love ya wc02, I really do, but I don't think this belongs on SpoFi.

Does this mean I can turn this into a link dump? For you extreme sports fans: The Dew Action Sports Tour concludes this weekend in Orlando. Can Bucky Lasek capture the Dew Cup in skateboard vert for the second year in a row?

I respect your opinion, terra, and know I was skirting the line. Point taken. Apologies to the offended.

I don't think this belongs on SpoFi It would be a great fit for Deadspin, though.

Speaking of creepy, is "Versus" (or is it "Vs.") serious with this Joe Beninati character? I'm going to have to watch this game on mute. This guy is terrible. I can't even get through pregame with him. Did he get booted from WWE?

I didn't take any offense, wc2k -- I just found something disturbing about it, that's all. There are plenty of vid of female athletes that don't affect me that way -- for example, the first scene with the Harriers in "Bend it like Beckham". This was just different to me. Again, no offense taken.

That reminds me of my mispent youth watching cheesy European R-rated films on late night cable.

By that standard, what would qualify as a youth well spent, rcade?

posted by lil_brown_bat at 08:45 PM on October 10

This is somewhat more balanced ogling... soccer players and their wives/girlfriends. But it would be even more balanced if it included, say, Mia and Nomar.

If I may hijack for a second... exactly what market is being targeted with: "Hey honey, what are you doing in bed with Peter Forsberg?" Is the NHL trying to corner the cuckold market or something?

posted by chicobangs at 09:39 PM on October 10

That would give them Vikings and Rams fans.

posted by yerfatma at 06:27 AM on October 11

What, you guys never fantasize about a threesome with Peter Forsberg? Oh wait, you don't? Um... Then me neither. I was just saying, um, you know, that , uh... Can I start over? (Wayne Rooney's fiancee looks like she's wearing the napkin from the dentist's office.)

"What the fungus?!" I'm fairly certain that's actually the daughter of whatever woman Wayne Rooney is actually interested in.

posted by yerfatma at 06:55 AM on October 11

Mr Fungus needs a bigger font.

Did he get booted from WWE? Actually, he got called up from the Capitals. Just be glad they didn't bring his color guy, Craig Laughlin, along.

By that standard, what would qualify as a youth well spent, rcade? I'm afraid that's not a question I'm equipped to answer. I spent most of my youth as a dungeon master.

That works for me either way you mean it.
