Is The Olympic Synchronized Swimming Weird, Or Is It Just Me?

What has happened to synchronized swimming??? It used to be so beautiful and now it just completely weirds me out! I guess I just fell in love with it back in the days when Esther Williams worked her magic. Now, I'm just stunned by how strange the whole thing is. I really can't even watch it because it just creeps me out.

Perhaps I haven't really watched it in ages, because I honestly don't remember it being so technically strange. Especially the whole out of the water and into the water routine. I must have been sleeping when that whole thing came about.

I just think the whole thing is weird. So, is it just me? Do I need an attitude adjustment or something? Or is it that the whole thing reminds me of this odd Halloween decoration?

I won't even get started on the whole single-man-canoe-half-standing-up thing. So do not know what that's all about.

It's weird. And why do they have to look so pissed off?

And here I was sad that I had missed it! I think I'm glad now :)

Now we just had this discussion here. The canoe thing while propped on one knee is completely bizarre. Can you imagine how that one shoulder must feel? Holy cow. And yes, the synchronized swimming is strange -- but I've always thought that. Ester Williams aside, of course because I loved her movies.

I'm voting for returning to the Esther Williams type sync swimming.

You poor thing, being frightened by the Olympics. That's just wrong.

You know what weirded me out? That finger thingy!
