CURLING

Speaking of which, has everyone seen the latest sports highlight newsreel? It’s quite charming. One of the best curling shot in history.

  1. Yep… I for one curled 6 or 7 years of ‘Junior Curling’ and have quite a few experiences (provincials as well) and trophies to show for it. It really is a good time out there on the ice… and you don’t necessarily see it with the broadcasts. Then again, most bonspiels don’t have a national or world championship on the line.

    As for that shot, it was a beauty for sure! Reminds me of a shot Kevin Martin made in the brier a number of years back. Not sure if it was for the game or even to score 4 but it was the same shot. Couldn’t find a link to it though :(

  2. I remember being really annoyed several years ago when Canada’s soccer team won the Gold Cup, and in the sports news it was ousted by BC winning a national curling competition.

    I’m not into curling, but I saw that video clip, and all I can say is, wow.

    Well, you could, in theory, and if the text is properly translated, be in certain parts of Sweden. Do you have any worldcup winners at ActiveState? I have a three-time champion at my company (not the same office, though).

    (it might be some google IP trickery, but if I google for “curling”, the first hit is the *swedish* curling association. the first canadian site is #3).
