Norwegian King to Model Argyle Curling Pants
Those pants are really popular. Even the King of Norway will sport a pair soon.
The Norwegian team is giving a pair of its trademark eye-popping pants to King Harald, who is slated to be in the audience Tuesday for his country’s final round-robin game at the Olympics. Norwegian skip Thomas Ulsrud talked to the King over the phone recently.
“I said what if the Norwegian curling team wanted to give you some curling pants? Would you accept them?” Ulsrud explained. “He said ‘Sure, they’re the coolest pants I’ve ever seen.’
“So just because we have some funny pants we get to hang out with the King or Norway and give him some pants and have some laughs with him that would be awesome.” ...
“Of course we knew when we put on these pants it was going to attract some attention,” Ulsrud said.
“We thought this could be good for curling in Norway but I would never dream that we would just hang out with the king and be wearing the same pants and could say — ‘Hey you look cool, King.’”
