It has come to my attention that I have been a tiny bit hard on curling lately, especially considering that I haven’t actually managed to watch a match all the way through. So today I set out to rectify that, watching all of the US vs Great Britain match, except for the part in the middle where I fell asleep, and now I am happy to be able to provide you with this list of five positive aspects of the sport:
– The accents of the (entirely Scottish) British Team
– Giving hope to the aged and unathletic everywhere that they too could be Olympic athletes.
– Spectators who have adapted the song ‘Jeepers Creepers’ to include the phrase “where’d you get those sweepers”.
– Shiny rocks.
– That’s five, right?
