The Olympics Occurred in the Buff
In kind-of-weird-but-it-kind-of-makes-sense-to-me news, the ancient Greek tradition of athletic nudity is believed to have started around 720 BC. It is also hypothesized that the practice was most likely introduced by Spartans, the fathers of bad assery (and in this case buck naked-assery). Competing naked was thought as tribute to the gods, which sounds totally conceited and ridiculous until you consider that these were sculpted athletes who had not yet heard of high fructose corn syrup and Wendy's Baconator. So, it probably was pretty impressive. They're just some athletic dudes trying to show off their ancient swell, you know? If I was Zeus I'd be impressed. I'd bless their harvests or whatever.
