Now, I agree seeing men's synchronized swimming would be just as stupid as women's synchronized swimming, frankly. Yeah, I suppose it takes dedication and hard work but you can't see what they're doing so who cares?
But diving is a whole nother story.
Perhaps Rush doesn't like it because the men wear very, very short speedos, revealing practically all, and they have much better physiques than the actual male swimmers (or at least, most of 'em. Lochte is nicely buff - and a horn dog which has reduced my respect for him - and the women who go out with him once - 100%, and Phelps may not have an ounce of fat on him but he's not buff. So, come on. Women pander to men in the beach volleyball with their skimpy bikinis, and in track with their not quite so skimpy halter tops, so why shouldn't women get some eye candy in men's synchronized diving?
