Yes, that’s what they say they do to initiation new swimmers. Hilarious, isn’t it?
We’re still waiting for details to make our Hazing-No Hazing call, but apparently the folks at MSNBC don’t think very highly of swimming as a sport . . . as evidenced by the photo (see screen capture below) with the story: unless we’re mistaken, those look like the legs of young women and we’re pretty sure that’s synchronized swimming, not the 200 meter medley relay. We’ve asked MSNBC for an explanation, but so far have not received one.
Any other explanations?
