U.S. Swimmer Ricky Berens cracked under pressure at the World Swimming Championships in Rome yesterday -- and suddenly people cared about competitive water sports again.

Berens' wet wardrobe malfunction -- caused by a pre-swim stretch -- only made him more aerodynamic... he helped the U.S. win the gold medal... by a split second.

My 2 cents are only worth 2 cents.    

Brad Hoffman - seriously? This is not how he intended his suit to be. The article clearly states that the suit ripped during stretching. Competitive swim suits are as skintight as possible and get worn out by chlorine (although at a high level like this, it might have been a new suit for the meet). Either way, the swimmer did not intend to swim like that, but he had to go with it...same thing, he didn't really have much of a choice. Geez.

I want to apologize to Tegan for being such a d*ck about her comment - my anal warts are giving me hell today, so I'm kinda touchy about the subject of ass holes - of which I am one.

His ass looks kind of plump for a man. Does he have ass implants?

# 91 you're a moron and a*****e! The swimmer's warerobe malfunctioned a few seconds before the start of the race and he didn't have time to make a quick change. I hope one day your warerobe malfunctions unexpectedly in public and in front of your entire family so that they can have a good laugh at your expense.
