Bob Costas is one of my favorite sports commentators. The guy is brilliant, but last Friday, during the opening ceremony of the 2004 Athens Summer Olympics, he made a couple of comments which I found disturbing. As the athletes marched in wearing their traditional outfits, Costas and his partner commented on their wonderful "Get Ups" and "costumes".
Now personally, I thought those comments were ridiculous. Did those athletes really think their clothes were "get ups" and "costumes?" Maybe they did? I'm not sure. I just found it a bit odd.
