USOC buys chinese made uniforms for team USA
Just have to love this. So after invoking a 1978 law giving the USOC exclusive commercial rights to the word Olympic and any logo using five interlocking rings, the USOC can't even be bothered to buy american made uniforms. Why exactly am I supposed to be supporting these guys again?

The USOC is a joke of an organization, and really needs to be cleaned up from top to bottom. This uniform business is a minor thing, but it's indicative of the BS games that they play and how it makes things more difficult for our athletes.
