Putin said gays weren’t welcome so Obama made sure that at least they’d all look gay.

It’s not about the Olympics anymore. It’s about the $.

Grama, Grampa...

What did they think they were designing for, the Elder Olympics?

Looks like 1932 Winter Wear...

I’m just surprised they have the flag on them.
Although I suppose it’s to let you know they aren’t
Norwegians with hose funny hats.

Wow... they’re loud.

They look sorta like the Christmas Sweaters that Aunt Mildred knitted and sent every year, and then you put them in the attic until she comes to visit... and then they smell like moth balls, but so does her perfume, so she really can’t tell the difference... but it’s that twitchy mustache of hers that REALLY bothers you...

But hey... as long as they go there, play their asses off and win, that’s what matters.

You have to wonder if US athletes are embarrassed by the uniforms.

When we were kids the olympics were about wholesome things like Cold War one upmanship.

What many may or may not know is they often trade their outfit pieces with other athletes from other countries. I wonder if they will have takers for this...

How embarrassing. But a definite reflection of those in charge of this once great country. I weep for what was and now what will be.

They’re OK.

The ones worn in 1980 look like they were stolen from gay cowboys.

The pants aren’t bad; simple white, “2014” and a US Flag. If the jackets were a simple white, with the Olympic logo (reminds me of the old Ballantine Beer logo) with a US flag over it, that would be slick...

But as they are... eh. Where are the batteries hidden?

How did Ralph Lauren get chosen to design the hideously ugly uniforms? Don’t think this had anything to do with it. NOT!
