The fact that its -5 or more inside on the sheets and slippery as bejesus (hip replacement anyone) and as well most people are well over 50 playing it... I can see the point.
Hell I was winded sweeping the whole way down the sheet, we used to start 3/4s the way down just cause we were lazy... hell its HS.

You mean like pulling on a pair of frilly nickers after a bad day at work??

What else is there to say about Curling... er there was at least one movie about it, Men with Brooms... good Canadian flick with Leslie Neilson... Don't rent it, but if its on, have a boo, if nothing else its a good look at winter in the Canadian sticks!

Maybe we can drop into a Gyudon shop at 3 am after a bender and see him.
Won't be hard to find him, he is probably the only gaijin working there, EVER, and we all know what he really looks like right?
