Tom Daley Selling His Stuff in a Speedo

tom daley 2 210512

While this probably wouldn’t be my first choice of attire in selling my first autobiography, I suppose you work your strongest assets when you’re hawking a book. In this case, Tom Daley is working that Speedo like a bitch in heat. (This gratuitous post is a reminder of our Summer Olympics – the posts of which I’ll try to repopulate if ever I find a spare minute.)

Ryan Lochte in a Skimpy White Speedo

Further proof that no one looks good in Las Vegas, even if you’re Ryan Lochte in a Speedo. Or maybe it’s the bevy of… beauties… that surrounds him that has me less than enthused. Whatever the case, I much prefer him at the Olympics and serious than in this Vegas pool at some Maxim event. How long until the bong gets passed?

That said, I could never begrudge any Olympian their celebratory fun, and he certainly looks like he is having it. And kudos to him for staying in the Speedo when the competition is over. If only Chris Evans would take a lesson…

This may be the part of the Olympics that some people miss the most: the after-diving shower. It’s just a question of which part.

Okay, I’m a bit biased, as he’s the first (and only) Olympian who was nice enough to follow me on Twitter, but Matthew Mitcham is my new favorite diver. (What’s the matter Tom Daley? Are you scared of me or something?) Even if Mr. Mitcham didn’t extend that courtesy, I’d have been enamored of him for being one of the only Olympians to live proudly and openly as a gay man.

It seems like such a small thing, and such an insignificant thing when you’re in the running to be the single best diver in the world, but to some of us it makes a world of difference. To some, this is everything – the peek into a future of possibility and hope – the seed of an idea that this might one day be you. If you’ve had to grow up without that, you have no idea what kind of power that holds.

The Gay Olympian: Matthew Mitcham

Olympics Day 14 - Diving
This is Matthew Mitcham, an openly-gay Olympic diver from Australia (talk about a triple crown).
He’s probably the most prominent and well-known of the gay men at the games (at least, he’s the only one I’ve heard about, and these things usually manage to trickle down even to the must oblivious of us).

Showering in His Speedo

Michael Phelps Speedo Shower

Not sure what the point of showering in your Speedo is, but Michael Phelps knows way more about water sports than I ever will, so we’ll leave it at that.

Tom Daley Busting Out of His Speedo

Olympics Day 14 - Diving

To all you guys who ever described yourselves as having a swimmer’s build, you can take it back now.

This is Britain’s Tom Daley, and this is how it’s done.

Now if you’ll excuse, I have some three-month-fasting to do, with a side of manorexia.
