Team USA Looks SHARP This Go Round

Friday, August 8, 2008
**If you're all anal about not knowing about shit in advance, then don't read any further because this is definitely a "spoiler"**.

NBC won't air the video feed in the United States until tonight at 8pm EDT, but that doesn't stop us from getting a sneak peek.

Ralph Lauren designed Team USA's uniforms for the opening ceremonies in Beijing and did a damn good job. David Lauren, Ralph's son and Senior VP of marketing (and some other shit) for the company said the design goal was to create "something simple enough for the athletes to put together, yet stylish enough to elevate us as a country."

I'm really feeling the blazer; that hoe is sharp. I would rock the hell out of one of those (sans the Olympic patch) any day. I'm so glad they decided to get away from the windbreakers and track pants. For more pictures from the opening ceremonies click here. From the look of things, China will really have you thinking they don't violate people's human rights like it's going out of style.

It looks weak and tired to me. Diappointment to me. Dark corporate colors...not a good move in my opinion.

Anonymous - You realize that these aren't just "dark corporate colors". This is a uniform and it's red, white and blue. It's our national colors. Would you rather Team USA come out in pink shorts with purples tops?

It's no fun if you don't say anything.
