    Beach Volleyball Thread

    OK, who saw the German women's team last night?

    Find Beach Volleyball pretty boring to be honest, probably my least favourite sport at the Olympics but it gets massive exposure..most of the women aren't even that great...didn't think the German's last night we're that good looking to be hones, sure they had good bodies but. Much prefer the indoor volleyball to watch...its faster and more aggresive and you do get some decent lookers in that (eg Poland last night)

    Quite. But surely there's better soft muck available, too?

    Disappointing IMO.

    Seem to remember the Beach Volleyball in 2000 and 2004 providing a reason to watch it. Not so much this year. Thoughts?

    Apart from Freeman and Fairweather, Cook and Potthurst was pretty much my highlight of the Sydney Olympics. Didn't really watch any Beach Volleyball this time.
