Global Warming Strikes the Olympics



Text  



It might be too cold for the beach volleyball players to wear bikinis at the Olympics. We have to do something, before its too late.

They call soccer the “beautiful game,” but an argument could be made that beach volleyball is the most beautiful game. Wives might object to their husbands sitting in front of the TV and watching tall bikini-clad women jumping and diving in the sand if it weren’t for the fact that volleyball is a legitimate Olympic sport.

But there’s a storm on the horizon (or, simply put, English weather), and it could cause volleyball players to bundle up in the equivalent of long underwear instead of bathing suits. The forecast calls for highs in the 60s early next week, with up to a 30 percent chance of rain. When you factor in night matches, that’s not exactly bikini weather. Some beach volleyball players are ready to take precaution.
