If you didn't know by now, the uniforms Team USA is wearing for the Opening Ceremony are a little ... let's go with off-the-wall. They're Ralph Lauren specials, topped by a beret. And the Internet seems to be hung up on that beret thing.
A quick check of Twitter gives us oh so many beret tweets. Pretty sure Team USA is going to single-handedly cause "beret" to trend.

Did USA get 'putting on a beret' lessons from Samuel L Jackson? — Jason Wyer-Smith (@JasonWyerSmith) July 27, 2012
To be fair, I have no idea how to wear a beret, either. Probably need a beret style guide.
