Transcript HOUSTON VOICE www.houstonvoice.com AUGUST 27, 2004 17 flSIOn BRIAN MOYLAN The hot athletes and chiseled bodies got me to tune in to the Olympic Games, but the thrill of victory kept me watching. Boys (& giris) of summer MICHAEL PHELPS' BATHING SUIT is dangerous. The Speedo on this multiple-medal winning swimmer from Baltimore is so low-cut that it looked like, at any moment, he would be the victim of a wardrobe malfunction, making the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens all the more memorable. I have been held captive by the summer Olympics for the past two weeks, taking time out only for that other great international TV competition, CBS's "Amazing Race" (on Tuesdays at 10 p.m.). And I've been captivated not just by Phelps. American gymnasts Paul and Morgan Hamm helped as well, even though their purses fall out of their mouths every time they speak. And speaking of gymnastics, Bel Ami, the Eastern European gay porn specialists, need to shell out some serious cash to get Romanian Marian Dragulescu and Bulgarian Jordan Jovtchev to do the "floor exercise" in their next movie. Then there's Greece's first judo champ, Ilias Iliadis. Wrestling an opponent to his back in the finals, his robe seemed determined to stay open, baring a chiseled physique that is usually only found in, well, gay porn movies. And when the winners celebrate, there's real man-on-man action. Nikolaos Siranidis and Thomas Bimis looked like they needed to get a room after winning a gold medal in the men's three-meter synchronized springboard diving competition. THIS IS WHAT'S BEEN OCCUPYING my mind since the opening ceremonies of the Olympic Games on Aug. 13. Sure, the hot guys are great, but there is something more that has me staying up late and waking up early so I don't miss a minute of events like the absurd race walking or the fully covered fencing competition. Thanks to the proliferation of cable television and the consolidation of network ownership, the NBC family of channels is doing its part to feed my addiction. Not only can I watch the coverage all day and night on NBC, but I can also check in on gay favorite Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC, USA, as well as Telemundo. if I brush up on my Spanish. And I'm apparently not the only one. According to Nielsen Media Research, as of Aug. 22, 64 percent of the U.S. popula- (t MORE INFO Athens 2004 Olympic Games Closing ceremony, Aug. 29,6 p.m. Greek athletes Nikolaos Siranidis (left) and Thomas Bimis look like they're about to really celebrate after winning the men's synchronized three-meter springboard competition at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

Maybe this has something to do with beach volleyball. You can't seem to throw a discus at NBC's collective Olympic coverage without hitting this event. Let me point out the inequality here, however, where the women compete in skimpy bikinis (finally, something for the lesbians to watch) and the men play in baggy tank tops and shorts. Lesbians were probably also watching tennis player Martina Navratilova. Though she has won countless trophies, the 47-year-old legend had never been to the Olympics. Sure, she and tennis partner Lisa Raymond lost in the quarterfinals, but it was while watching this match that I realized why I was tuning in. Navratilova has proven herself to the sport of tennis and to the world a long time ago. She proudly came out of the closet a long time ago and came out of retirement to play doubles tennis. Nothing, internally or externally, kept her from traveling to Athens. "The end of a dream?" she asked an Associated Press reporter after missing her chance for a medal at the Olympics. "No. I am living my dream." That's why I keep watching. It's for people like Navratilova, athletes who look as beautiful after a match — whether they win or lose — as they do playing it.
