Death, warfare, money, death, politics…the Harvard scientists bit was good actually… O-kay. And now that that’s done let’s get on to the important stuff!
This week on Project Runway, the contestants had to design outfits for the women of the US Summer Olympics Team. It was hysterical. A few of the men had never watched the Olympics and had no idea what an opening ceremony even was. Note to self: even if your son is gay-gay-gay, sit him down to watch the Olympics! This year’s look was designed by Ralph Lauren who did a great job. Preppy, clean, obviously American, and I love the golf caps. Go team!
The Russians meanwhile, look like they might’ve gotten the wrong box of shirts. (You can click on the image to blow it up and see what I mean.) These shirts look less like ‘I’m a bad-ass Olympian’ and more like ‘Caring Hands Senior Center Goes to Atlantic City,’ but that’s just me.
P.S. Nadal, you’re totally hot, but what’s the deal with talking on the phone during the Olympics? Isn’t that like a total no-no?
Japan – I swear to God that these Olympians look just like a group of Japanese tourists I saw in Hollywood yesterday. The flags are even the same and though I’m no vexillologist, I’m thinking I might’ve seen the Japanese Olympic team on Hollywood Blvd.
Uruguay – Very nice, those guys are cute. Where were they when I was in Uruguay? Oh yeah, probably exercising while I was plopped on a beach reading romance novels. Hmmm. Second note to self: When on vacation, schedule time to check-out Olympic training facilities. Might be good place to meet single men.
Paraguay, France, Jamaica…the list goes on and on, but my favorite of all is this one: These guys seem really proud of their heritage and it makes me happy to see them in their Olympic-wear. Don’t you just love the Olympics…so much better than death, warfare, and politics!
