Scotland's Commonwealth Games uniforms raise eyebrows
Petition started against bold design
Scotland is hosting the Commonwealth Games starting later this month in Glasgow, its largest city.
The host team has unveiled its uniforms for the athletes' parade, and they're... well, judge for yourself:
The new gear isn't going over well. A petition — addressed to "The Scottish Government" — to drop the uniforms was started on change.org. It already has more than 7,000 signatures, and that number is climbing fast.
There's not much time for a wardrobe switch, though. The opening ceremony is July 23, when the Scottish team plans to march into Celtic Park stadium wearing the uniforms.
Here in Canada you can watch the Commonwealth Games on CBC Television and CBCSports.ca .
