I just got back from a couple of weeks of vacation and was watching the women's beach volleyball on DVR (don't tell me who wins, oh all right I know who wins, because they always win).

And for some strange reason the tattoo on Misty May-Treanor's back is blurred out. I've seen that tattoo many times before and there isn't a thing offensive about it, just a roman numeral five and some flowers and stuff.

I went online looking for an official explanation, but all I could find is some rants about NBC being chicken-$hit scared of litigation from some random tattoo artist.

Anybody have a supported definitive answer as to why NBC did this? Or am I left with random internet conspiracy theories?

Trying to blur her bum and missed?

I'm glad I could watch it all on the BBC, it sounds like NBC have made a right balls up of this Olympic coverage.
