Word of the Day: Buksekrise
Remember the Norwegian men’s Olympic curling team? The guys who prefer go-to-hell pants? They encountered a Buksekrise (trouser crisis) after being forced into a tiebreak match with Great Britain today, a match they didn’t account for in their wardrobe planning. Each team member brought nine pairs of pants (the hubris!) and in their tenth match were forced into repeated wearing of their most abstract expressionist pair. Alas, the Brits, who dress like they’re working the concession stand, won the day, eliminating fancy pants from this year’s Olympics.

Apparently a guy on the Norweigan curling team thought these pants were neat, and got the other guys on the team to buy them.  And then they decided they were their uniform pants.  BRAVO.
If you are on a curling team from Norway, you might as well just wear  these pants.  I offer my FULL SUPPORT.
