It has been for long known that NBC experienced troubles with their broadcasting delay unit, and they proved it once again by delighting the eyes of the viewers who watched a water polo game from the 2012 London Olympics.
A wardrobe malfunction happened during the women’s water polo match between the United States and Spain when an American player grabbed the swimming suit of a Spanish opponent and stretched it maybe too much.
The image aired live by NBC was fast enough but apparently not for those with an eagle-eyed observation spirit. Folks quickly logged to Twitter where they started posting dozens questions like: “Did you see that?”, “Did I just see what I thought I saw?”, “Can you confirm what I saw?”, etc. A funny comment came from a social websurfer who wrote: “I had no idea that water polo is so…exciting:)”.
It was reported that the incident was first noticed by Deadspin whose screenshot flooded later the blogosphere.
