What If All Sports Were Shot Like Beach Volleyball

Although this Olympics required some extra covering up, beach volleyball is one of those sports that not everyone watches for the game. Nate Jones, over at the Metro, had the insight to ask the question, “What if every Olympic sport was photographed like beach volleyball?” The results he found on getty images were entirely amusing. I guess it really takes a trained eye to take sports shots that look this good.

  1. The post today is just one of the many reasons I love this blog. The photos say it all.

    When I watch pro-football games here in the U.S. I’m amazed at the camera angles used to capture the breasts, crotches and butts of the cheerleaders as they bounce and jiggle on the sidelines during games. Rare is the camera shot of them actually doing cheers or standing and talking to one another or reacting to a particular play.

    Someone should shoot an entire football game with the focus being the butts and crotches of the football players because isn’t that what pro-football is all about?

  2. These images are all hilarious and blatantly display the level of objectification of women. A good example for those who like to say we’re all just over-reacting.
