Opening Ceremony Thoughts

As much as I like Roots, and as good a job as they do on Winter Olympics uniforms, it's time for them to stop designing Summer Olympics uniforms. This year, they provided the uniforms for the US, UK, and Canadian teams, and none of them looked good. The US uniforms were particularly bad -- somewhere between gaudy short-sleeved leisure suits and early 20th century sailor outfits for three-year-old boys to have their pictures taken in. Ugh.

My favorite uniforms of the opening ceremonies? New Zealand's, and it wasn't close. All black with a huge silver fern... perfect.

How much work has Gianna Angelopoulos-Daskalaki had done on her face? And why couldn't they get her upper lip right? Watching her talk kind of freaks me out.
