Emma, in that case, I'll see if I can pick one up for you.
Kerry, that would be lovely. I've always wanted to wear a packet of Skittles. Delicious.
The Irish team look's like they belong in the Russian army choir that started off the Olympic pre-game show.
Canada arrives as #35 since they're going alphabetically by the Cyrillic alphabet. After Cayman Islands and before Cyprus. Get ready.
Well, hello, Spain! Berets for everyone!
My people have no snow. THEY'RE SNOWLESS WRETCHES.
Italian uniforms designed by Armani.
Kazakhstan's flag bearer is wearing a traditional costume...and it's gorgeous. Nicely played, K.
@CathalKelly: there's snow in Danny Boy. Must be a climate change thing.
Canada rolls into Fisht Stadium. 26 medals in 2010.
Vinay, he did. But I don't think it was his best work. Pretty sure I bought a similar jacket from a Far West outlet when I was 11.
I defer to your expertise, Emma. I just like writing "Armani." Makes me feel less poor and alone in this world.
Speaking of Canada: Penguins defenseman Kris Letang will miss at least six weeks after having a stroke last week, it was announced today by Executive Vice President and General Manger Ray Shero.
The condition is treatable with blood thinners and at this point is not believed to be career threatening.
Further testing also revealed that Letang, 26, has had a very small hole in the wall of his heart since birth. This small defect in the wall is present in all individuals before birth but seals shut in most people. It is possible that the hole in the heart led to the stroke.
The Canadians are the largest team, by far, to have come out and the red and black outfits have an almost RCMP like effect to them.
Oh , Canada! Donning their Hudson's Bay gear. Point Blanket duffel coats, Canada toques and those maple-leaf mittens that just won't quit.
Huge contingent, Kerry. 220 athletes from Canada?
Yep - we're good with snow and ice in Canada.
Kerry, if the RCMP were a 1950s college curling team from Manitoba. I joke. I'd actually buy one of those coats. But then again, I've always wanted to learn
how to curl.
I'm especially impressed with all the Russian attendants in white who have to sway side-to-side the whole time the athletes are marching in. Those people have very sturdy ankles.
Cathal, I'm really impressed with their fuzzy white hats.
Vinay, if you were ever to buy Armani you'd feel more poor. An Armani suit goes for $2,500.
I love the countries with small contingents
Netherlands, making orange wearable in 2014.
@EmmaYardley: Orange is the new black
The flagbearer for New Zealand is the first in Olympic history to kill his own outfit.
The Kiwi contingent are all wearing hooded merino wool onesies made on the South Island by Mons Royale. Get yours now.
