Since when has fashion been a concern in the Olympics? Apparently the American snowboard dudes take it very seriously. They are claiming that all snowboarders competing in the freestyle race should dress in the baggy costume worn in skateboard parks and recreation slopes. Now they're criticizing the Canadian snowboard dudes for wearing pants too tight and too aerodynamic! GIVE ME A BREAK! I thought the object was to cross the finish line first and fair, not who looks the most "cool". What's next? Helmets on sideways?

Obsession with fad can apparently distract from the issues at hand as easily in sport as they can (and do) in art.
