Donald Trump will attend Army-Navy game in Baltimore

Men's curling

When: Feb. 10-21.

The field: Since curling joined the Olympics in 1998, Canada has played for every gold medal on the men's side, winning the last two. The Canadians are ranked first in the world. Britain, Sweden, Norway (silver in Vancouver in 2010) and Switzerland (bronze in 2010) round out the top five in the world rankings.

U.S. chances to medal: The Americans' best Olympic finish was a bronze over Britain in 2006 in Turin. In the current world rankings, the U.S. is eighth, ahead of only Germany (10) and Russia (12) in the 10-team field. So just enjoy the show.

Little-known fact: Loudmouth, an apparel company in Foster City, Calif., is responsible for the fantastic — or fantastically awful — uniforms for Norway. Whatever you think about them, it will be impossible to look away.
