Dancers and competitors bathing suits: a few more views

My good friend Dana Sanders added some interesting insight here and I'll try to add the link to the WSJ article he refers to when I find it. Bob Graham also added an interesting POV supporting Rosie's role in questioning the jiggle factor at matches and I'll post his note if I get permission.

The latest updated info I have on Guylaine's stance is that she was distracted by the dancers being too close to the court during the match so the FIVB has moved them back for all matches but may have been extra careful to keep them off the court during the technical time outs of her match. In an interview after the match she told a CanWest reporter standing next to me that she wouldn't mind if they would at least throw in a couple of male dancers for the women in the crowd. She's definately being patient with reporters who want to focus on this issue but I find it unfortunate that they're missing some more important angles like her long road back to the top of the sport after the tragic, unsolved murder of her only sister.

I think I'll leave the lost word of this post to Jenna Child (John's 9 year old daughter) who sat next to us watching the female players walk through a throng of dancers as Bridgette Child and I discussed this issue. When asked which should would rather be she responded vigorously "A player!" which brought a smile and a high five from her mom.

Subject: Re: [Athens Journal and Canadian Volleyblog] Fw: Dimanno trashes beach volleyball

fyi ... There's a front page story in todays wall street journal on 
beach volleyball. same angle but different presentation. far more 
constructive in their observations. less offensive (i'm speaking here 
of ms. dimanno's rhetorical question regarding "when does anybody watch 
beach volleyball for the volley" and her demeaning of the sport by 
putting brackets around the word "discipline"). But, leave it to a 
Canadian to critique the success of a sport where americans are stand 
outs, understating the fact that the canadians are just as viable and 
have little need for sarcastic defendants whose primary aim is to 
attack the very sport that the canadians are making their mark within. 
Again, the WSJ article contrasts the bland nature of tennis at the 
olympics relative to the crazy success of beach volleyball and cites 
the raciness as part of the reason offering helpful social critique 
balanced with appropriate acknowledgment of the good it brings to the 
olympics themselves.

have a good one my man.

Му web blog ... how to use a pizza stone crust
I'm impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's equally eduсative and іntеrеѕting, and without a doubt, уou've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm veгy
haρpy I cаme аcroѕs this in my search for somеthing relatіng to thiѕ.

Here is my wеbpagе: augenlasern
What i ԁon't understood is in fact how you are not actually much more smartly-preferred than you might be right now. You are so intelligent. You understand thus significantly when it comes to this matter, made me in my opinion consider it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless it's οne thing tο ԁo wіth Woman gаga!
