More curling

Yes, it is Ash Wednesday, but the the important events of life go on.

We are rooting for the US women against the Germans… which leaves me a little conflicted, but not much.

The field of battle.

    This, like shooting and unlike weightlifting, strikes me as an event in which separate men’s and women’s competitions are unnecessary. Just my $0.02.

    Go U.S.!!

    Japan v Canada just went to the last rock of the last end…needless to say, the Canadian women won it!

    The first ever Olympic medal won by a Newfoundlander was the gold won by the Gushue rink for curling at the 2006 Olympics. As a result we now have a Gushue Highway. Curling, big stuff north of the 49th. (well we are actually at about 47)

    Yahoo Sports today reported on one of the alternates on the Canadian women’s team. Who happens to be six months pregnant!

  7. Ioannes: separate men’s and women’s competitions are unnecessary

    I wonder if it would be a good idea to put men and women with sticks of any shape together on a sheet of ice.

    Oh no Father…the men’s USA v Switzerland just went to curling SUDDEN DEATH after the drama of the measuring tape in the final end!

    Father, you need to get out the Rituale and do some sort of blessing of the brooms because the US is not doing so hot so far. 0-7 combined.
