Opening ceremony sweaters highlight Team USA uniform

That red, white, and blue cardigan in your sweater may be fitting for an Olympian.

Designer Ralph Lauren revealed what Team USA will be wearing during the opening ceremony at the Sochi Olympics on February 7.

They include a patriotic looking cardigan sweater.

Underneath is a cream colored turtleneck.

Below that are white fleece pants and black boots.

The patchwork on the cardigan is supposed to symbolize that every athlete has a story to tell.

Every piece of the uniforms is made in America.

Ralph Lauren was criticized for outsourcing the ones worn at the London games in 2012.

And if that old sweater in the closet isn’t good enough, you can buy the Olympic sweater online for $595.

    For those die-hard Olympic fans hoping to watch the opening ceremonies with the rest of the world , don't count on NBC.

    The network WILL NOT be broadcasting the opening nor the closing ceremonies live. Instead NBC will edit the ceremonies for a later broadcast. So the rest of the world ( including poor third world nations) will view our grandpa sweaters before we watch them enter the stadium.

    Does anyone remember how NBC butchered the London games closing ceremonies? Recap: the network thought you would rather watch the sneak preview of a failed sitcom about a veterinarian and his obnoxious monkey. For those in the same mindset as me. I would suggest you check online for sites that actually stream the games and forget about Bob Costas.
