Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Few Americans will make it through this Olympic season without a joke about curling. Yet this slow-moving sport is an Olympic staple and a center of high fashion. The Norwegian men's curling team is making a run for the gold. And when it comes to clothing, they've made a run for the bold. They're wearing red, white and blue-colored argyle pants. You will see the diamond-patterned trousers today when the Norwegians take on the Swiss.
