Nummer Ni (That’s “number nine” in Norwegian, according to Google Translate)

As we count down The Anthology’s most ridiculous moments of 2010, I would like to present to you…

9. Forget David Beckham and his Armani underwear ads, the most ridiculous sports/fashion cross-polination has to be Team Norway’s curling pants at the 2010 Winter Olympics. The red, the white, the beige, the blue. The clown-like diamond print. They made a sports fan out of me. And if they don’t inspire a million knock-offs in 2011, I don’t know what will.

P.S. Check out the number ten most ridiculous moment of 2010 here.

    My current desktop background is a similar picture I took when I had the good fortune to see The Pants in person. A guy in the crowd started a cheer, too – “HEY, NORWAY: We – like – your pants! We – like – your pants!” and everybody joined in. A member of Team Ulsrud raised his broom in acknowledgement. Total Olympic joy moment.

    Ahhhh! That would have been so fun (and funny).

    Didn’t you find the curling spectators crazy? They were even more rambunctious than Olympic hockey fans, I swear.
