“Those crazy pranksters!”
That was my first thought when I saw the swimsuit Conor Dwyer wore for his Olympic gold-medal moment: the men’s 4×200 free relay.
Here’s how I justified the ONLY reason he would choose that particular suit it in my mind:
Michael Phelps: Hey, Conor, me and Ryan have a special present for you.
Ricky Berens: Yeah, Conor, you’re new to the team and we wanted to welcome you with a cool gift.
Conor Dwyer: Awesome, guys, a white jammer! I know just when I’ll wear it. Gee whiz, fellas, you’re the best!
Thankfully, (in the episode of Punk’d playing out in my head) Ryan Lochte had pity on poor Conor and recommended he wear a Speedo under it. Of course, he didn’t recommend a white one. That would have spoiled ALL the fun.
But I have to wonder. Conor’s been swimming for at least a couple of years, right? I mean, wearing a white swim suit without appropriate lining is like, well, you just know, right? (just ask Hungary’s Daniel Gyurta who pulled it off swimmingly)
Anyway, the guys pulled it out for gold (er, um, I mean…wait, let me start over)
Anyway, the guys showed us what they’ve got (damnit…I can do this)
Anyway, the guys won the gold.
