Women’s water polo historically hasn’t exactly been a magnetic sport in the Summer Olympics, and that’s mostly because some of the participants could pin Steve Balboni.
Having said that, the underwater camera shots are at times both priceless and somewhat appetizing. Your prime example is, of course, the overwhelming wedgie that seems to be a common occurrence from what I’ve gathered thus far. It definitely assists in keeping the viewer.
Ideally, at least in this instance, we would request that NBC had panned left for another view — look at that toned right leg — but it wouldn’t be proper to get picky. Plus, NBC doesn’t give a shit what viewers think.
