Underwater cameras and the grabbing, wrestling, suit pulling and ripping, and the nakedness of water polo.

"The person that invents a suit that’s not going to move is going to make a lot of water polo players happy."

I got pantsed during a game at Auburn last year. Other than that, I haven't had any wardrobe malfunctions.

I'm much more concerned about being injured than someone pulling on my speedo.

The fun part is that (at least when I played in high school), they won't stop play for a suit torn off. They'll whistle immediately for visible blood, though.

So if you're unlucky enough to be de-suited, you can make your opponents as uncomfortable as you want with close contact until there's a play stoppage. Just don't bleed on them!

When I played rec league water polo in Syracuse as a kid, we would wear 3 pair of trunks of varying size and fit - baggies on the outside, regular trunks next and a speedo underneath.

The game hasn't changed much.

Rings kind of hollow given the nude photo that was the subject of a post earlier this week.

Somehow, I see "The Women of Water Polo" in Hef's future.

PS Hatman, don't be a wuss.

below the water was nasty. Above the water it was just hockey with out sticks, but with lots of elbows to the face

AndyR w/ some humor..kudos!!

Water polo is big in San Diego. When you watch a game in person you can see how physical and nasty it is. TV doesn't really convey that.

Andy, For whom do you play water polo? The Ramblin' Wreck?

This is why the Olympics should return to the Greek ideal of nude competition. No wardrobe malfunctions, ever.

Of course, advertisers might not like this, but they can pay for tattoos instead of embroidery.

These are nothing compared to the men's semifinal at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics between Hungary and the USSR, just over a month after the Warsaw Pact invaded Hungary.
