Curling: Saw the US women basically eliminate themselves today with a loss to the Russians (the only consolation was that the Russian skip is a real hottie). The American women are definitely cute, but they sure let a lot of opportunities slide by this morning. I'll give them credit for coming back with a strong 9th and 10th end (good strategy in the 9th to clear the house and keep the hammer, and Cassie took advantage of a Russian error in the 10th to pick up 3 points and go to extra ends), but they got down early again. And when you go for a tie at the end, the problem is that the other team has the hammer for the rest of the game.

I am actually interested in the sport (if you can call it that) because I find the strategy and the touch fascinating; of course, this sort of thing doesn't hurt. Hat tip: Ben Pyatt.
