The ratings would probably double if they were playing in string bikinis.
Visited the local Walmart today. Seemed like half the ladies in the store were wearing yoga pants.
Do these women not own mirrors?
They could wear tighter, more revealing outfits. That would draw the crowds.
Hey, its the only reason to watch Beach Volleyball – and its now an Olympic sport.
In all truth, I have yet to see even one WNBA player who is attractive in my view, but being attractive is not why they’re on the team, right?
Good call, Tank
Next time someone claims that WNBA players have made great strides in being recognized and respected as the world class athletes that they are, I will merely direct them to this comments thread.
Outside of Sue Bird,I can’t even REmember one WNBA player.
When Babe Ruth was asked to name an all-star outfield,he named himself,Fatty Fothergill(DETROIT)and Smead Jolley(WHITE SOX)—“all mounted on polo ponies”
Go to Sweden and watch women’s volleyball if you want an eyeful.
Well to each his own, but here’s my question; What sport did Cover girl May Musk play? SI Is really searching
I still don’t understand why any athlete would go along with women’s beach volleyball uniform mandates…
Reminds me of when former FIFA president suggested revising the uniforms for women’s soccer to use hotpants and and sports bras.
Does anyone ever consider what the athletes, (i.e., the women) want to wear? That should be the main consideration, within reason. My understanding, as an example, is that the the players (US team anyway) in the Olympics women’s beach volleyball wanted the bikinis as their outfit, rather them being selected by some old guy who was donating money or had other influence. For most women’s sports, something comparable to what the men wear seems appropriate. If they want to pose for SI or whoever in something else, that’s their personal decision.
