    Team USA is looking to send a social media savvy fan to Fargo, N.D., for the the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team Trials

    Are you a fan of one of the Winter Olympic Games most popular sports? We're not talking about downhill skiing, figure skating or hockey. We're talking about curling. If you are, the "Fargo FANdango" is just the thing for you.

    "We hope that the Fargo FANdango will help draw a little more attention to curling's Olympic Team Trials and the great athletes involved in the event," said Terry Kolesar, director of communications with USA Curling.

    USA Curling is looking for its biggest fan to travel to Fargo for the 2014 U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

    "Fargo has a unique and warm community that we are hoping to highlight as part of this great trip to North Dakota," said Kolesar. "While many of us may think about going somewhere warm for the winter months, we'd like to change those thoughts to:  'Why not head to Fargo to watch curling?'"

    But before you grab your stone and push broom and put on those funny looking pants there are a few requirements you must meet. USA Curling is looking for a social media "skip," who knows at least one fact about Fargo or North Dakota, eh!

    "The Fargo FANdango contest is a fun way for our fans to have an opportunity to see some of the best curlers in the U.S. while showing off their social media skills," said Kolesar.

    You also have to come up with a video that shows off your passion for the sport. If you are interested in carrying out your curling dream? Check out more on the competition and deadline here.
