    US Opening Ceremony "Uniform"

    It's like they're attending an ugly Christmas Sweater contest or something.

    WHY ARE THEY SO AWFUL?! The rest of the clothing collection isn't bad, WHY ARE THESE?!

    The pics of Evan were back when he was still hoping he'd be able to skate (I think back in October or November is when they did that segment)

    It's confusing the heck out of my 4-year-fan friends, haha. One of them thought Evan was still on the team.

    If you go through the whole slideshow they show Evan, Jeremy, Max, Ashley, Gracie, Agnes, Davis and White, the Shibs, D&C, C&S and Kristi Yamaguchi. So a few early picks were wrong and then Kristi.

    I could watch the video, but not the slide show :(

    I guess the US colors are good to work with, as mentioned competing with the same Norwegian's. A bit more difficult for Sweden with the bright yellow and the middle blue color. Sweden often uses white as a between color. This year the dark blue color is more expressed I think. And some grey as well. 2014 olympics collection is made by H&M pulled together with athletes. Viktoria Helgesson is one of the models

    Is it bad if I describe it as looking like a bunch of multicolored cats threw up hairballs?
