Intentional goofiness of Norway's curling team uniforms trumps bizarre Ralph Lauren U.S. Olympic Team attire

Preposterously pretentious Ralph Lauren (born Ralph Lifshitz and now worth about $6.5 billion) is currently famous for his unrelenting Downton Abbey commercials on PBS, and must either hate jocks or has entered into a secret pact with Queer Nation to punish athletes who aren't boycotting Sochi, if his Team USA opening ceremonies outfits are any indication.
     Norwegian curlers, unlike "Lauren," obviously don't take themselves seriously or expect anyone who sees their getup to do anything but grin, which, if you think about it, is a pretty good strategy to win over spectators.

  1. Holy crap. Those suits need to come with a warning that they could induce seizures. As for the sweaters, they would win the gold medal at an ugly sweater contest.
