The best race photo of all time

From the Musselman half:

What was this guy thinking?

A. Got hot in the middle of the swim and disrobed?

B. Lost his shorts by some freak accident?

C. Thought it would be really funny until the "see thru" realization set in?

Discuss amongst yourselves :)

Um... so how did you get this picture of me?! JK :P I'd file this one under things not to do in a tri/embarrasing moments. Sorta reminds me of the story of a foreign guy who wasn't wearing anything under his wet suit at an ironman and couldn't communicate that to the "strippers" at the end of the swim. Urban legend? Not sure.

Must have lost a bet...

Maybe he thought he was bigger than he actually was.. Then when he got into the cold water, he really shrunk and reality set in?

All I could think about was riding 56 miles with wet, cotton underwear. Ouch, crotchal chafing city!

Thanks for the laugh!

Mojo, I was thinking the exact same thing. Wet tighties under bike shorts with a nice tight chamois. Imagine the chafing. Youch!

Okay...the thought of the aftermath is almost worse than the photograph.

This is the funniest thing. EVER. I can't stop laughing long enough to type. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks... I think I'm going to have nightmares for the next week... You know the one... you wake up and all you have to wear for your Triathlon is a pair of tighty whities... Not only does everyone laugh at you...... but.... I just don't even want to fathom the pain associated with that... soggy cotton... under carraige - many miles biking, many miles running...... NOT a good combination...
