What Happened to the Hot Beach Volleyballer?

Florida Marlins scrub catcher Matt Treanor’s wife, otherwise known as the infinitely more successful, athletic and talented US beach volleyballer Misty May-Treanor, is going to be on the next installment of shlockfest “Dancing With the Stars.” People Magazine, bastion of fine reporting and fair analysis, opted to present this image of Misty to their readers so as to introduce her to them.

Sure, spending hours and hours in the hot beach sun can’t be great for you, but I don’t understand how she immediately became the bride of Skeletor either. Or why the editors felt that THAT was the image that was most necessary to portray May-Treanor. There are thousands of other really great images of her across the web, and not just the ones of her butt, her face features prominently in many of them too!

For example, here she is in full airbrushed glory:

And here she is in natural, candid photography:

Pretty nice if you ask me. Not the terrifying witch-lady in the first photo. But then, that’s me, and it is all superficial anyways. I just find it interesting that they chose that picture to be the one for May-Treanor. C’mon People, do a TEENSY bit more research than that…

You Mean You Want Me to Actually Watch the Game?

I love women’s beach volleyball, I think I’ve shown that in the last few days with post after post celebrating that which is most good about this beautiful game. The Olympics might be very boring, but count me in as planning on dvring and watching every beach volleyball match possible. Except maybe for the Indian team’s games. That’s because they think wearing the standard outfits of the sport, the delightfully small and tight bikinis, to be against their traditions and objectionable.

beach-22Um, hello, this is half the reason why your game is an Olympic sport, it’s basically one step up from paddle ball. “We want to give a good fight in the game and not the dress code,” said Kanaka Mahalakshmi, one of the members of the Indian team. The rules of beach volleyball do allow for women, “out of respect for the religious, cultural and ethical sentiments of participating countries” to wear different outfits, and so the Indian women will be wearing shorts and t-shirts. Boring!

Zoe Chater, a Frenchwoman in India to play in a tournament who will be wearing her bikini said, “everything is possible in sports to respect culture of different countries. We don’t mean to offend anyone. We are here to play the sport.” I think I know which team the crowd will get behind.

No Wonder Interest is Growing

Beach volleyball is one of the fastest growing sports, no wonder since the women who play are generally pretty hot and wear small bikinis. Here is a delightful gallery with Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh and several other pro volleyball players. What an age in which we live!

Enjoy the rest of gallery here

(I especially like that this gallery was put together by the Florida Sun-Sentinel, that’s some hard-hitting news y’all are putting together, I thought that was only for the blogs, not the mainstream folk…)
