Watching the winter olympics is making me miss Vancouver, snowboarding and skiing. I can't imagine why winter olympics are less popular than summer games because to me it's way more exciting. I love the uniforms for many of the competitions but the best is Burton designed USA snowboard team made to look like flannel shirts and old jeans. (Stagg has a Burton coat we found at a garage sale he wears busking). Below is the amazing Shaun White...even though I was rooting for Canada...White is a heavenly guy to watch. His Double McTwist last night and wild stunts were just amazing.
The Japanese snowboarding uniform was my second favourite. It's as if it's a watercolour and seems to be daisies and diamonds. It's just so flowery I like it.
I love the Canadian speed skating teams uniform too. I felt so bad for Jeremy Wotherspoon not having medals at the Olympics. He's had a strange set of things happen to him whenever he's competed...but damn he looked cool!
Women's Downhill was just amazing and scary last night. I was sweating and nervous the whole time watching the women skiing so stunningly!!! Um, why the hell is it called "ladies downhill" though? Ergh...
