It looks like Women’s Beach Volleyball will continue to be a hit at the Olympics. How can it fail when the women wear the skimpiest of bikini bottoms and only a slightly bigger bikini top? As a woman, I demand equal rights for the men! I too want to see eye candy – that’s the only way I’d watch this sport. The men must also wear bikini briefs, and no shirts at all!

But I digress.

Women are playing their last softball tournament at the Olympics for the conceivable future, as it has been dropped from the Olympics after the 2008 games. (As has baseball).

Here’s the schedule to see the USA women in 2008.

Tue., Aug. 12 12:00 p.m./12:00 a.m. USA vs. Venezuela Wed., Aug. 13 12:00 p.m./12:00 a.m. USA vs. Australia Thur., Aug. 14 12:00 p.m./12:00 a.m. USA vs. Canada Fri., Aug. 15 12:00 p.m./12:00 a.m. USA vs. Japan Sat., Aug. 16 12:00 p.m./12:00 a.m. USA vs. Chinese Taipei Sun., Aug. 17 7:30 p.m./7:30 a.m. USA vs. Netherlands Mon., Aug. 18 12:00 p.m./12:00 a.m. USA vs. China Tue., Aug. 19 OFF DAY Wed., Aug. 20 All Day Playoffs Thur., Aug. 21 6:30 p.m./6:30 a.m. Gold Medal Game
