LOL I am watching the Men's sychro diving 3m board contest. The commentators were remarking that they just had some type of streaker, except he was wearing what looked like a tutu. LOL Sorry, these kind of things crack me up! I guess this guy actually jumped off a diving board or platform. I wish they would show these people, I mean I know they don't because they don't want to give them the publicity, but you're already talking about them, might as well let us see a picture!

off to see what she can find about the intruder/streaker with a tutu

Since it was sycronized diving, I don't see how he could earn any points since he was alone.

From non other than.... www.goldenpalace.com

ATHENS, GREECE, AUGUST 17, 2004 - There was an unexpected twist to yesterday's Olympic Men's Synchronized 3M Springboard Finals when a streaker climbed the diving platform dressed in a tutu, clown shoes, and a tattoo of Internet casino GoldenPalace.com. He threw his arms into the air repeatedly to try to rile up the crowd then belly-flopped into the pool where he attempted to amuse the crowd by trying to imitate a synchronized swimming routine.

After the incident, blunders by the American, Russian, and Chinese teams led to Nikolaos Siranidis and Thomas Bimis of Greece winning the gold medal. The three countries were ahead of the Greeks in the event before their miscues in the last round.

The streaker turned out to be Ron Bensimhon, the same man that appeared at the World Figure Skating Championships in Germany this past March. According to Bensimhon's lawyer, the tutu-clad streaker loved the rush he received from the skating event, and decided the Olympics would be the ultimate stage for him, providing even more notoriety, fame, and adrenaline-fueled excitement.

A devoted fan of the casino, Bensimhon had "GoldenPalace.com" tattooed on his torso to prove that he could accomplish this feat, perhaps in the hopes that he can be useful to the site for future events.

Regardless of Bensimhon's motives, his performance may well have allowed Greek fans everywhere to celebrate the first win of a coveted gold medal.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the term "streaker" usually reserved for people who are not wearing clothing?

That casino pays people to disrupt all the major sporting events. They hit the Super Bowl this year, and have hit big soccer and golf matches.

Shock advertising at its worst.

The casino has nothing to do with it. The guy just did it on his own because he loves the website so much.
In other news, I am no longer a ramsfan, I am rooting for the Cubs, Michael Moore is always welcome at my house, and I am voting for Kerry.

Personally, it makes me less likely to go to their casino. It makes me want to tell all my friends that if they want to gamble online, not to go there.
