Curling



Fr. Z really seems to enjoy watching Curling at the Olympics.  (I like watching the maintenance staff cleaning the ice as the stone slides along.  Those Russians are so clean and neat, aren't they?)


Nyuk nyuk nyuk!

  1. I think we should start a new drinking game. Every time Terry mentions Fr. Z in a post you have to do a shot of your choice. If Thom then chimes in with a scathing comment about Fr. Z, you chase it with a shot of bitters. If Fr. Z actually shows up to respond in the combox, then you have to finish the bottle of your choice and promptly clean all your weapons. Any takers?

    1. Yeah - don't mention the drink in front of Larry and Badger. (It's a good idea though.)

  2. I've been playing that game for 3 years. My liver is pretty much shot, and my guns are in comparable shape.

    Terry, have you seen the Norwegian curling team's uniforms?!?! I kind of love them, but a French client of mine was scandalised and started going on and on about the French team and Lacoste. I like my job. =)

    1. If she wasn't a client you could have praised Ralph Lauren to her face.

  4. Larry - for some reason I couldn't reply on your comment. I just wanted to say, 'that's what happened to Cathy'.

    1. Lightweight. She couldn't keep up.

  5. Sounds like fun. I'll have to use chocolate instead of booze, though.

  6. Enethbreliel, I sent a link to an article about curling fashions to a Nordic woman I know. She thought they were great.

  7. Okay - confession time. I used to go to the St. Paul Curling Club on Selby Ave. and, wait for it, I had Spoolies. Spoolies did not make professional pin curls. The hair became twisted as you wound it around the peg. Not good. A good pin curl is an art form. I had to learn how to do them in cosmetology school. I was just okay...
