Why Norway Should Be Declared Olympic Champions.
There have been some nice stories in these Olympics. From the US hockey team's upset of Canada to Bode Miller to Shaun White, American's have had a hell of a time in Vancouver. However, one country has seriously outdone us, as well as every other country in the world. That country is Norway.
Currently Norway is sitting in third place in the medal count with 18 medals. Only Germany and the USA have more medals.
However, Norway's world domination doesn't end with its 18 medals. No, its recent success transcends the Olympic Games.
Team Norway would easily win 4,000 gold medals for how cool their curling team's pants are. They are the definitiond of swag. I'm pretty sure those pants are the piece of clothing I covet the most. However, Norway's coolness doesn't end with a pair of knickers.
Tore Vikingstad is a 34 year old forward who plays for Team Norway. That's right, Tore Vikingstad. Vikingstad is hands down the best last name in history. Also, Tore is a pretty dope first name.
Lastly, Erik the Red is pretty cool.
