Someone Give Bermuda A Gold Medal For Wearing Bermuda Shorts To The Opening Ceremony

"Impressed with small Bermuda contingent wearing Bermuda shorts in 32 degree temperatures, very on brand."

Some things never change: water is wet, the sun continues to rise, and Bermuda athletes wear Bermuda shorts to the Olympics Opening Ceremony.
