2. If you dislike these

Suggest they bring in ACTUAL penguins to perform. These are young elite athletes and I find it refreshing after years of highly restrictive training regimens they get a chance to relax the rules and dress casual.

3. Oh I'm over it. Was jarring at first. Of course the kids deserve all the joy

they can get after working so hard for so many years. The denim may age better than other uniforms as denim is timeless. I remember the Calgary Olympics where the Canadian team wore western style red and white leather with a fringe going across the chest and around the back. I love, loved, loved those coats. After the Olympics a student at the boy's private school across the street from where i grew up used to wear his to school. I was so excited to see the jacket (knew nothing about the student or if he was an athlete or if the jacket was a copy). Every olympics I look forward to seeing what the uniform is for Canada.

Someone gave me advice to keep up to date and 'develop my eye' if i was interested in the arts and design. I used to read many magazines a month. I have hardly touched a design magazine in more than a decade and my eye does not match the fashions of the day i have noticed. I've lost it. Doesn't stop me from having a point of view it seems.
