If you took all the sequins

from all the costumes of all the figure skaters at the Olympics…


You would have this sweater.


And if you took all the light from all the torches that crossed this country in the relay, you’d end up with something that shines as brightly as the sweater does.


But the real reason I’m wearing it? It’s gold! Like the medals Canada is winning.

Because my theory is the more gold we wear, the more gold we win. Makes sense, right?
