….or can they?
Wow, do we have a cavalcade of curling stuff for you today! All sorts of curling news, photos, hats and apps straight ahead. No kidding. Click more to be as confused as Kevin & Bean are about the world’s most mysterious “sport.”
Drink if you must to get through it.
First, the world’s most famous Olympic curler. Not because she’s won anything yet, but because she is 30 years old and SIX MONTHS PREGNANT! Click here to read all about the knocked-up pride of Canada.
Maybe the second most famous Olympic curler this week is Denmark’s Madeleine Dupont. She blew two crucial shots (are they even called shots in curling? Who knows?) late in the game (match?) against Canada and helped her team lose. What happened next is what caught the world’s attention ever so briefly. She blamed hecklers in the crowd and then cried. THERE’S NO CRYING IN CURLING! Read the story here.
If the twenty hours a day curling can be watched on CNBC is not enough for you and you require up-to-the-second updates of all things curling, this iPhone app is for you. Shot tracking! Hammer efficiency! Check it here.
Tired yet? Bored? But wait, there’s more.
Let me just go ahead and quote from, uh, Curling Hats.com: “Finally. A hat for curling fans. Our hats are soft like marshmallows, and attractive as all get out. I suppose I should stop there, because I doubt a sentence could get any sexier than that. Of course you’re going to buy one now…” So, your prayers have been answered, right? And that’s also the site that claims twelve million curling fans, if you were wondering if I was high.
And finally, I know the US Curling team is terrible. Have we even won a game? I’m rooting for them anyway. How can you not after seeing this group picture?
USA! USA! USA!
