Who invented volleyball shorts?

    Is there any particular reason ass shorts are acceptable as attire for volleyball players accross the country? We're short a photographer and I've got 50 of 50 shots that could be considered gratuitous. Maybe I'm making too much of it.

    OK, your responses helped me realize I need to get better at cropping.

    I''m pretty sure it was Bob Barker, back when he wasn't screwing the stage models.

    There is no way to shoot volleyball that doesn't make a guy feel like a pervert.

    Wrestling is just as bad.

    Yeah, really. This isn't middle school.

    That's usually said in jest. Besides, you never said which level.

    I was joking too. I didn't say it with disgust, which I guess is hard to convey across the Internet.

    But use common sense, if this was college, I wouldn't have a problem with this. :)

    Many teams are now going to the thigh-length "bicycle shorts" style. A move heartily applauded by all the players who are even 5-10 pounds overweight.

    I've always gotten a creepy-crawly vibe from the volleyball coaches who have lengthy arguments all reasoned out as to why the bikini bun-huggers are just clearly better shorts to play in. And some do. When players suggest (they almost always do) they want to go to longer shorts, they have a whole spiel ready to go as to why the gynecologically-designed ones are really much, much better to play in.

    Uhmmmmm, OK. ::) ::)
