See? Didn't I tell you that curling was one of the greatest sports ever to watch?
And if you watched the Canadian men's team win the gold medal in curling yesterday you will know that all is right with the world.
I have liked this young Newfoundland team since I first saw them a few years ago and with the addition of the venerable and always entertaining crusty old Russ Howard, well that was a team made in heaven. I have also always liked the Finnish team skipped by Markku Uusipaavalniemi (don't you love Finnish names), so this was a great match up.
And speed skating! The glorious Clara Hughes, who is coached by none other than my colleague's wife, won gold in the 5000 metres. The Canadian speed skating team has been fabulous these games, with Cindy Klassen taking 5 medals.
But skeleton scares the shit out of me.
