Well it’s that time of time again. Time to give our nod to the best uniforms of the Olympics. Look, I know I’m partial to the Maple Leaf (the actual leaf, not the hockey team) but they’ve been kicking booty so far. Charles Hamelin not only won gold in the Men’s 1500m speed skating event, he also has won Gold for his uniform. Kickin!!!
Like a good cowbell, we just can’t have too much Maple Leaf. The curling team (I really try every four years to understand curling and it never happens. Now I live in Curling land so I should probably learn) takes a close second to their speed skaters.
By far, the Norwegian curlers show themselves to be serious athletes with no time for fun…
I want to party with these guys.
Figure skating is a shoo in most years cuz their shirts are sparkly and the skirts go swooosh as they turn. That’s kinda fun. But the Russian pair, with help from their actual skating, made you believe they were actually waltzing with the Romanov’s…pre-mass murder.
I’ve been unimpressed with the USA uniforms thus far and their rediculous ugly Christmas sweater thingy as they marched during opening ceremony was embarrassing. See, other countries actually took this seriously. Ugly Xmas sweater is what you wear once a year for FB pictures and a good drunken ugly xmas sweater party. Then you put it away for next year or pay it forward and hit up Ragstock again. They don’t even get a picture here, if you missed it, google it.
Whoever dressed the Russian athletes has the right idea,
One more Maple Leaf…
I mean COME ON!!! Someone up there in the great white north figured out how to showcase their pride with each sport. ‘Merika?
Did they open up an elementary school contest to dress their athletes? Cuz if so, that’s kind of cool and totally explains why their uniforms are as snore as snore can be. If an 8 year old won a visit by an Olympian and a check to Chuck E Cheese for their winning design then I’m behind it. If it was an adult, well then, ick. Fail.
By far my most favorite is this…
The Russian designs on their uniforms and warm up leisure suits are boss. I really want a Russian logo’d leisure suit. Cuz why not?
Arrogance is in everything I do. It is in my gestures, the harshness of my voice, in the glow of my gaze, in my sinewy, tormented face.
