Four weeks too late, we have a belated winner for this year's ugly Christmas sweater contest: The U.S. Olympics Team, racking up their first of what we hope will be many victories!
Though we expect the others will be much more pleasant to look at.
The Ralph Lauren-designed Opening Ceremony uniform (own your own Team USA sweater for just $595!) was unveiled Thursday and the good news here is that unlike their uniforms for the 2012 Olympics, these were made in America.
The bad news is everything else.
The Christmas sweater comparison seems to be the most popular take, but just to make this a truly cross-cultural critique (the Olympics bring the world together, after all), there's a pretty good Yiddish word to describe the sweaters too: Ungapatchka, which basically means a busy, jumbled mix of random stuff.
Though for a more precise definition, just tune into the Olympic Opening Ceremonies and wait for Team USA to walk out.
