It was the photo spread that simultaneously titillated and puzzled the masses on the internet recently (for a few minutes, anyway): female high-school volleyball players in sports bras, wrestling each other in a kiddie pool full of chocolate syrup. "The girls team, egged on by the boys team, were just having fun to mark the end of the girls season and the start of the boys season. They used 27 bottles of the syrup," explained the caption on, the Tribune Co. site where the gallery originally ran, and on the websites of Newsday, the Hartford Courant, the Baltimore Sun, and other Tribune papers, where it was syndicated.
