The USOC of course being the United States Olympic Committee.  Why?  Because someone made the decision to give the contract for Team America’s official uniform to Ralph Lauren, and then Ralph Lauren turned around and got the garments made in China.

China.  Team America is being outfitted by uniforms manufactured in China.

Some people use the lame excuse that “Well, the US wants cheap clothes, so we don’t make anything here anymore.”  Tell that to the pair of “Union Made in the USA” jeans I’m wearing right now, along with a great shirt made by King Louis America.  Two great American shops who could use a break, and would have proudly made Team USA’s apparel if given the chance, I bet!

So shame on you, USOC!  Your poor choices bring shame to our nation!
