(Newser) – The boobs at NBC might be considering extending the network's Olympic broadcast time delay to its live feed online—after it revealed the bare breast of a water polo player. The audience watching the US-Spain match on site didn't get the benefit of the underwater cameras, but NBC watchers did, and apparently caught US player Kami Craig pulling away the swimsuit from a competitor, notes Deadspin, where you can check the shot (the video is at Mediaite).

There's "a lot of suit-grabbing going on under water," gamely noted a sports announcer. Not to worry, said one snarky Deadspin commenter: "Giving airtime to a boob hasn't been an issue for NBC before." The game ended in a 9-9 tie. (Read more 2012 London Olympics stories.)
