Great Britain going for the Gold in Curling

Post by LarsMac »

I became a fan of Curling after spending the better part of February, one year, in Toronto. Curling seemed to be the national Sport of Canada.

I spent several evenings sitting in the hotel Bar, with a few pints of Steam Whistle, watching the Curling championships.

So I will be cheering Britain on as they try to take home another Gold medal.

Should be an exciting watch - disappointing that the ladies went out but we can't win them all (usually we can't win any of them).

Thanks for your support Lars, and I think our lads are going to need as much help as possible having to play the unbeaten Canadians in the final - as you have said, possibly Canada's most popular sport (I would think that's a toss up with the ice hockey though). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for young Miss Christie in the 1000 metres speed skating - she's had some misfortune so far, but the way she shot past the other skaters like a Formula 1 racing car to ahieve the final bodes very well, barring accidents etc. of course ! :guitarist
