Norwegian Curlers like their Clothes how they like their Women. Loud.
What the F*ck is in the water in Oslo.
That right there, is the Norwegian Men’s Curling team. They won the gold in 2002, and they’re focused on recapturing that glory 8 years later. As long as they don’t cause play to be suspended indefinitely by giving their opponents seizures.
Looking like they’ve been made out of a chessboard from the island of misfit toys, the Norwegians started sporting those pants in training. The fans loved the pants, and they look like they’re staying on for competition.
What makes this even better, is that these guys are sort of bending the rules by wearing them:
“The Canadian Curling Association (CCA) mandates the wearing of black pants at all Canadian events, but according to Warren Hansen, CCA Director of Event Operations and Media, the World Curling Federation (WCF) might overlook the rule.”
Now, I feel confident that this term has never been used before, but it’s eloquently appropriate now: These guys are curling badasses. They’re going for the gold in a nation that DEMANDS black pants, and they wear the antithesis of conformity! And whom did they draw for their opening round match? The Black Pants wearing Canadians.
Sadly, they lost a “7-6 extra-end decision to Canada” (I don’t know what that means) But these guys are still in it. I think… I don’t know how Curling works.
The pants are made by a US company (figures) and we won’t post the link. Instead, why don’t you consider buying a nice pair of flat front straight leg chinos from The Gap. They lightest color is on sale for $15.00, will be perfect for summer time, and it won’t look like you puked Fruity Pebbles all over them.
