If Danny Boyle is going to use a line from Shakespeare's final play to open the London Olympics, then it's only appropriate to use another to describe the enchanting team that is gaining the adulation of a small, but devoted, following of Olympic fans.
We speak of the women's field hockey team from The Netherlands, the best looking team in the Games. The orange-clad squad won their first match 3-0 against Belgium on Sunday, a big step to advancing to the knockout round from Group A and defending its Olympic title. Victories come and go, however. The enduring power of this field hockey team is that it transcends on-field results. As many on Twitter have noticed, there are reason to go Dutch beyond the team's success:

@farmerman,
I don't know who you were watching, but I saw a game where they were wearing skimpy bikinis.

Hawk: I doubt you'd find a 'fattie' on any sports team.

@Mame,
My guess is maybe the sumo wrestling team may have some fatties...

@Linkat,
Olympic "Sumo" hee hee. I went to a Sumo match in Taipei once and nobody in the audience was even watching. Everybody was reading newspapres. Why the hell have a sport where even the locals dont give a ****?

The female gymnists would seem to be canidates. My guess is the fact that they tend to be very thin and with out tits hurts their score.

Interesting about the volleyball: it seems like the PC crowd looks at bikinis in the sand as sexist and objecticfying, they assumed that as soon as women were not required to wear skimpy wear that they would not. Not so fast.

@farmerman,
Yeah - but I thought they were loved in Japan - I just can't get over large men wearing a thong - forget it I can't get over any man wearing a thong.

But believe it or not there has been attempts for this "sport" to become an olympic sport.
