From the explanation we get it with the service dog but we're coming up short on the ski goggles.

This one is likely to be quite a bit more beautiful to some than to others but there's also history in this since at Olympia, over two millennia ago, they wrestled naked and presumably with their skin covered in oil the same way.

Le Tour de France presents some special purpose beauty as well since some may find it only interesting while others find it exquisite.

There must be something beautiful in this or there wouldn't be so many people wanting to see it but the Rockhouse doesn't get it.  We don't get why anyone plays tennis, much less why anyone would go somewhere to watch someone else to do it.  Your call on that one, mates, but the Rockhouse will sit it out.
