While Russia and the United States were unveiling their sweaters for the Olympics in Sochi at their orientation camps to much scorn across the hockey world, Canada elected not to show it off. All the while Canadians laughed at the American sweater.
Well the joke might be on them because on Thursday a picture made its way onto Getty Images of Jonathan Toews, a guarantee to be on the Olympic team, in a Canada sweater at the media day festivities in New York. And, well, just look at it.
Let's see here, that's a Nike sweater and you can see that it has the same faux laces at the top of the sweater that the American one has. It's a really good bet that's the jersey.
And, well, all I got is HOLY UGLY SWEATER, BATMAN! I take back everything bad I said about the Sabres' third jersey earlier this week because this one is ... not great either. As you can tell, Toews is thrilled to be sporting it for the cameras as well.
It's just so ... bland. It also looks almost like something the Swiss would be wearing, not Canada, though they do have the same colors in red and white.
So what do you think, who has better sweaters; USA (see it here) or Canada? Because we all know that's going to determine the real winner in Sochi.
