Canadian fans will pack the stands to cheer for gold in a favorite sport Saturday. No, not hockey - curling, when Canada's men face Norway in the final. Those crazy pants worn by the Norwegians have made them popular at the Olympics, but not against the home team.

Old bear it

Canada's 43-year-old curling skip, Kevin Martin, is seeking his first career gold medal after coming an inch short in 2002.

Night Train rides

Steve Holcomb could lead the United States to its first four-man bobsled gold medal in 62 years.

Crafty veterans

Chad Hedrick, right, is guaranteed a fifth career medal and Jennifer Rodriguez could earn a third in the two speedskating team pursuit events.

Last chance

The men's slalom is the final opportunity for Austria's "Wunderteam" to win an Alpine medal.
