Now there's a subject line to get someone's attention!
Fun fact: There are few pleasures in life greater than the sight of a wet, half-naked swimmer. Don't believe me? Oh, you've probably never seen Ryan Lochte, then. Let me help.

Man, the summer Olympics make feel so... patriotic. God bless America, amiright?
*cough*
Annnnnyhow, I've got my own swimmer boy for you. There's different excerpt from By the River up at Honey Bunny's site just now that might interest you, if you like this sort of half-naked dripping wet thing. In which Adam meets Leith properly for the first time.
One week from today, it's on. Eeeee! <3[image error]

Mandapanda So this is our Aussie swimmer for the 100 free in London. Pretty cute huh! His name is James Magnussen.

Emma Sea This is Dylan Dunlop-Barrett who is going only to bulk out our relay teams. He's not going to win us Kiwis any medals :( but I can go watch him down the road at the surf life saving carnivals every summer.

KV Taylor You Aussies always have so many awesome swimmers. Mmmm lookin' forward to seeing this one in action.

(Can you tell this is my sport? Because it's totally my sport!)


message 4: by Katey (new)

Katey Hawthorne Oh Emma, I LIKE that guy. Utterly lovely, that one. And hey, surfing is its own form of EXTRA AWESOME.

(Yes, I commented with my other penname above. I'm daft like that--I was logging in a bunch of comics I just read :D)


message 5: by Natalie (new)

Natalie I love the Olympics. You must check out Aussie diver Matthew Mitcham. He's openly gay and completely adorable.

The fourth google result for Matthew Mitcham is "Matthew Mitcham is not circumcised". WTH?

And yes, clearly he is adorable!

EDIT: That link is very very NSFW!

Katey Hawthorne Oh man, my editor shares Mitcham pictures with me a few times a week. He is ridiculously adorable.

Divers... I don't know, man. It's not my sport, but what the hell is up with the cute divers? (Three words: Canada. Alex Despatie. Unf.)

(Wait the unf made it four. But that's totally not a real word so... doesn't count!)


message 8: by Katey (new)

Katey Hawthorne ... information we really didn't need about our athletes, eh, Emma?

But goddamn, what a cutie pie.


message 9: by Emma Sea (last edited Jul 24, 2012 07:55PM) (new)

Emma Sea I am offically a new Matthew Mitcham fan.




message 10: by Mandapanda (new)

Mandapanda God you just want to take Matthew Mitcham home don't you. He's so cute. It's like he's Super Twink!

Katey Hawthorne Holy god. The little blond cutie hotness. It burns us, precious.

Mmmkay it's only fair if I share faves of my Quebecois hotness now. (Am I unpatriotic to cheer for him? No! We love our neighbors, even if they don't love us :D) Alexandre Despatie:





And last, but sure as hell not least...

Katey Hawthorne O, Canada...

Hehe thanks for joining in the fun, ladies. <3


message 17: by Melanie (new)

Melanie But there's still Michael Phelps looking grand….


message 18: by Katey (new)

Katey Hawthorne So true! I'm so pulling for him to break that record. I love all the Lochte v. Phelps drama too, just for the sake of upping the stakes.

Thought you guys might enjoy this, too, pointed out by my editor on tumblr:

(How cute is it that they suggest Alex Despatie play Northstar? :D My Quebecois pretties!)

Nice link Katey! This completely explains why Grindr crashed in London.


message 20: by Natalie (new)

Natalie After reading this, I am so going to be imagining all the athletes getting it on with each other.

100,000 condoms! o_o

Best. Link. Ever.
Oh my lord y'all are killing me. I CAN NOT freaking wait. Tomorrow can't get here soon enough!

And so excited for By The River too!


message 22: by Katey (new)

Katey Hawthorne Emma, hahaha! Okay that's truly hilarious. Too much hotness for one island, clearly...

Wow Natalie. That was hysterical, and makes so much sense! I particularly like the stuff at the US Women's soccer team being in the middle of it (since I have intense crushes on most of them...) and Lochte hanging out with the football hooligans. Also, I think there's a book in the bit about Greg Louganis curlng up in a Russian diver's lap... With caviar!

"But the image of a celibate Games began to flicker in '92 when it was reported that the Games' organizers had ordered in prophylactics like pizza."

What a line.

Right, Lara? I cannot wait for Saturday aaaaaaaaugh! And thanks for joining in my "River" squee, too. I'm trying not to be too nervous. At least the cover is distracting, thanks to swimmer-boy.
