It’s time for a little bit of Olympic snark. Maybe because it’s late here and I had to sit through watching some ridiculous outfits for over 3 hours when I wanted to see interesting/cultural fashion (and there were a few of those moments) or maybe it’s because I have Paul McCartney singing “Hey Jude” on repeat in my head now, but I though I’d share some of my fashion ramblings with you. Of course if you are following me on twitter you can now go back to your morning coffee as I already spewed it all last night, minute by minute and it wasn’t always pretty….
The Good – at least they were colorful. Very colorful. Like skittles. A rainbow of color. You get the picture.
The Bad – For a moment I seriously thought they were all dressed as pinatas. Could be attributed to the margaritas I was drinking at the time.
The Good – at least the stripes were not black & white making them look like Alcatraz escapees.
The Bad: No one looks good in wide horizontal rugby stripes – not even hot athletes. Or people in prison.
The Good: They are the host country so they can do whatever the hell they want technically speaking. And they did.
The Bad: They stole the gold before the games even officially started. And looked like solid gold dancers doing it.
The Good: We only have to wear those stupid berets once, and aren’t berets French?? Duh Ralph. .
The Bad: that our amazing athletes were seen in them at all.
In all seriousness, the Opening Ceremonies were amazing. London did a fantastic job, from the rock music to the Queen playing along in the helicopter skit, to the fireworks that put anything we have here to shame. And after that disaster in Vancouver at the Winter Olympics 2 years ago I think we are all just thankful this one went without a hitch. Thank you London for an amazing night.
