Most Americans watching the Olympics from Vancouver --- and according to the TV Nielsons, there are plenty of us --- seem to be quite concerned with medal count or if Team USA will defeat the friendly Canadian hockey team. Not this Hound. What's with the goofy uniforms donned by our American athletes?
Like those Farmer John pants the snowboarders were wearing. They looked like a cross between a Vermonter harvesting maple syrup and a Central Valley lettuce farmer. That's the best we can do when it comes to uniforms on the world stage? The Chinese snowboarders had nice uniforms.
One can only guess what Joan Rivers might say if there was a red carpet for the Winter Games. Or Mr. Blackwell, if the catty one were still alive. And the uniforms for Team USA hockey? They looked like rejects from the Dallas Cowboys of the Eddie LeBaron era.
The contestants on "Project Runway" could come up with better costumes. For the next Winter Olympics in Russia, let's begin now working on team costumes. Who cares how many medals we win. Style always counts. Ask Dick Button.
