Wow, the height of stupidity. I wasn't aware that Puritanism was back in style.

Meh, that's Skip Bayless for ya, that's his job. He's developed a persona over the last few years of being the sports analyst everyone loves to hate.

95% of the time, he'll take the objectionable side of an argument or voice the unpopular opinion just to stir up shit. He's a caricature. Don't take what he says to heart. Even though, honestly, he's pretty damn good at his job because he accomplishes just what he's set out to do: piss people off.

It doesn't bother me so long as they didn't ruin the ice for the men tonight

OMG. :bitingnails:

I may need to start drinking in a minute.

Then again, I'm a Canadian female. It's what we do.

Saw the last few minutes of curling. I don't understand the sport at all, as it looked like there were red and yellow rocks in the middle when the match ended, but oh well. Silver is still pretty damn good!

We haven't been able to get gold from our women ever since Sandra Schmirler, curling giant, died.

We met Cori Bartel's Mom in line to get in to Curling. She gave us Canadian Flag pins. Nice people

The stone closest to the center (the button) scores a point. Any stones further out only score if there isn't an opposing team's stone closer. So, going from the button, if there are two yellow stones closest, then a red stone, then another yellow stone, only the two yellow that are closer than the red score.

That makes sense. Thanks for explaining!


Now it's time to start drinking heavily while watching the hockey game. Let's see if my heart can handle the stress.
