Time to put that Olympic stuff on sale bitches

A lot of people didn’t like the Hudson’s Bay Company-designed Olympic apparel.  The Roots stuff of years past was cooler but I didn’t think the HBC stuff was horrible, except for those stereotypical sheepskin hats.  Here’s a thought, if we as a country don’t want to be stereotyped, let’s stop stereotyping ourselves!  No, the only thing that really bothered me about the HBC stuff is that the tees and sweats were produced in red, navy, yellow and green, the classic HBC colours.  HBC, you might not know this, but there is no navy, yellow or green on our flag!  There’s something wrong about taking your corporate logo and dishing it back to us as official, "I’m so proud to be a Canadian" Olympic wear.  I would kill for one of those wool HBC-striped blankets, but the Olympics are not the place.  Shame!

And this entire rant could have been avoided if that stuff had been on sale when I looked it up.
