Hey! How about that opening ceremony that concluded a few minutes ago? Now we get to watch it! Thanks NBC.
From our hater's guide earlier today:
The opening ceremonies are basically a three-hour episode of Project Runway, only there isn't a bitchy gay judge there to explain why the Qatari dresses lack cohesion.
Deadspin's style correspondents are ready to answer questions, entertain you, flirt with you, argue with you. Parade of Nation outfits! Bob Costas! Whatever insane shit that Boyle dreams up! Who looks good, who looks stupid, it's all on the table. Get to know:
Irina Aleksander: She's a former editor at Elle and a cold, lethal Russian. Talk to her about boxing! Irina just wrote a monster piece for The Atlantic on an American lady boxer.
This is our red carpet. Let's talk.
UPDATE, 11:16 p.m.: We're done. These two have been here for almost four hours. I'm sorry for keeping you so long. But you did great. And so did everyone else! U-S-A! U-S-A! Also, apologies to Paul McCartney for not getting to your performance. But we'd love to have you another time.
Otherwise, conversation we had tonight is saved below. Good night!
