It's shuffleboard on ice. Like, that's literally exactly what it is.

How popular is it? Well, we like to say the Brier and Scotties (the national championships) are a bigger deal than the world championships.

Also: damn Norwegians.

If it weren't for them we'd be winning these Olympics!

But, it's not all bad. The only really important thing is beating the Americans. Which we are.

It should have a minimum age requirement of 50. Girly could be an Olympian! ... 'Cept I can't skate. ... I'll be the dude that throws and let the other fuckers take care of the rest. Tongue

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

RE: SOCHI!
Do you play Girly? Around here, it's the people your age that love it up.

Did anyone hear about the Canadian Coach giving the Russian the new ski? Or is this just a Canada pride viral thing we are hearing/noting about here?
