Norwegian curlers plan to win, wear wacky pants

By Evan Hilbert | CBSSports.com

Have you been wasting your days concerning yourself with what the Norwegian curling team will wear at next month's Olympics? Worry no more!

The team, which also made a statement at the '10 games, settled on the colorful gear by accident, after a supplier shipped the wrong goods back in 2010. They settled on the loud unis, though, and haven't looked back.

Now the plan is to take the threads to the podium.

"These pants would be great to win in," Haavard Vad Petersson, a team member, told the New York Times. "But they'd be terrible to lose in. We decided that when we wear them, we have to really try and win and go the whole way."

Good plan.
