Slate's tag-team discussion of Olympic competition featured much curling-talk which, while exciting, is bittersweet for me since i do not have USA network to enjoy video. (Although, given that the Bemidji wonder-twins are 0-3, maybe it's better than i can't watch.) But what really caught my eye is this particular piece of vindication:
"I completely agree that the costumes have gotten out of hand. And also overly literal, at times. For instance: One skater was not content just to perform to the James Bond theme, but he also embroidered "007" on his back in sequins. (We get it, dude. You've got a license to camel spin.)"
