Team Great Britain had matching Olympic luggage, caused problems at baggage claim
Filed under great ideas in theory but not quite in practice: matching luggage for Great Britain’s Olympic team. Sure, it’s cool and a nice show of solidarity at first, but then you get to baggage claim and you realize that you have a pretty big problem.
Just ask members of Team GB who arrived back in London and went to claim their bags, only to find that there was no real way to tell anyone’s apart aside from checking every nametag.
See for yourself:

Red bags were everywhere. Took a while to find your bags even with name & sport tags #GreattobeBAck #TeamGB #Rio2016 pic.twitter.com/TfWAziL0Qj

Sure, they had tags on them and all that, but really, how long must this have taken to sort through?
I suppose if there’s a bright side, it’s that nobody lost their luggage. Just ask Andy Dalton what that’s like.
