The people inside these fine garments are members of the Norwegian Olympic curling team, and they blessed us with this Valentine's Day look during their Wednesday match.

Incidentally, the Norwegians are the OGs of stylish curling pants. Norwegian skip Thomas Ulsrud started the trend during the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver because he decided the black pants the team wore were too boring. He is also on the 2018 team that has brought us to a new curling pants peak. Absolute legend.

However, it is teammate Christoffer Svae that apparently mans the pants these days.

"This is because of Valentine's Day," Ulsrud said after the team's 6-4 loss to Japan. "So [Svae] who plays second on the team, he is the master of the pants. So I guess I have a big bag of pants this week. He always tells me it depends on his mood before the game. Pretty much whatever he gives me, I play in."

"The team enjoys it, having these colorful pants," the Norway curling team's spokesman Lars Otto Bjørnland told CNN in 2014 during the Sochi Games. "People find it very exciting to see the team in these trousers."

Eat your heart out, Johnny Weir!

Bjørnland is correct. Watching curling is very stressful. We know everyone involved is trying hard and doing a great job but we're not sure how or why anything is happening. These pants bring us peace. More! Give us more pants!
