Makes Cricket sound exciting
2002-02-12 11:18:51 AM  
I demand drug testing of the Canadian team...they might have been sober during the competition!
2002-02-12 11:19:23 AM  
I don't know how we'll ever recover from this devastating loss.

Is this "sport" based on distance or accuracy or what? I don't get it.

Good for Canadians I guess, cause they got screwed last night in the "sport" of figuare skating.
2002-02-12 11:21:35 AM  
Sad thing is Canadians are probably please as punch to have a gold medal. Hozers
2002-02-12 11:21:50 AM  
When is "Men with Brooms" coming out?
2002-02-12 11:21:55 AM  
okay, and they have such cute shirts two.

the only olympic sport a couch potato can excell at.

Wait till I join the Olympic beerdrinkingdartthrowing team.
2002-02-12 11:22:38 AM  
Curling is now my favorite sport, right behind mullet hunting! GO USA CURLERS!
2002-02-12 11:22:42 AM  
I watched some of this yesterday. It is about as excitng as synchronized swimming. A real nail biter.
2002-02-12 11:23:41 AM  
I swear, looking at the athletiscism of curlers even I with my computer using ass could become the Tiger Woods of the curling world.
2002-02-12 11:23:52 AM  
where's the obvious tag?
2002-02-12 11:24:52 AM  
I feel a photoshop coming on with this one

"Canadian mens curling team hands the US team their ass"

Just b/c the Canadian team is a bunch of pillow biters doesn't mean the USA team is a bunch of pitchers and wants to take the Candian asses.

Kidding Canadians, I actially like y'all. Just someone served up an easy one ...
2002-02-12 11:27:55 AM  
curling = housework

How can I talk these guys into coming over to my apartment to clean the floors?
2002-02-12 11:28:00 AM  
Curling. Bocce Ball on ice. Yeah, that's a sport.
2002-02-12 11:28:04 AM  
gah, I'm been watching this lame ass sport get more followers for a while now. Will the madness never end!?!? It's so farking lame! Shuffleboard for Canadian dorks.
2002-02-12 11:30:31 AM  
Hey, now that the Olympic competition is over... Let's have a "Your Boss kitchen sweeping" contest! We'll use the slice of three week old cheese that's under the front edge of my stove for the gold medal! C'mon USA! U-S-A... U-S-A... U-.....
2002-02-12 11:31:04 AM  
So they're able to fix their hair faster than Americans? So what?
2002-02-12 11:31:32 AM  
Take off, Aye.
I bet everyone in Hogtown is Seein' the Governor.
2002-02-12 11:35:37 AM  
Can I be the first to whine that I submitted a similar article with a way funnier headline?

Americans lose in curling to Canada. Doomsday clock stopped.
2002-02-12 11:35:57 AM  
Yesterday when the US beat the Swedes, I almost cared.

Now I realized that was a dangerous way of thinking.

I definitely don't care about this.
2002-02-12 11:38:07 AM  
This is more of a sport than Figure skating. No "sport" is set to music.

And congrats to our Snowboarding team. We have the best stoners in the WORLD!

The thrill of victory!!!

America weeps. Biggest upset since America lost in Table Tennis at the '84 Olympics in LA
2002-02-12 11:40:43 AM  
Hey Rmdw, Crickit is exciting! Don't knock it till you try it!
2002-02-12 11:41:27 AM  
Hey Thatguy, so you only care when you are winning? Yeah that's sporting.

Whatever, hockey is coming...say goodnight boys.
2002-02-12 11:42:51 AM  
...and promptly sticks their penises in it?

When is "Men with Brooms" coming out?

It's coming out soon, cos Famous Players has posters for it all over. The part where Leslie Nielson shows Paul Gross his mushrooms was funny.

Note: anyone who doesn't believe that the figure skating judges aren't corrupt should look at the silver we got. It's one of those sports that shouldn't be in the olympics, though because there's no fair way to judge the thing.
2002-02-12 11:45:15 AM  

so you are cheering for the Czechs and Russians too? Teams USA and Canada don't stand a chance. Take a look at the average age/speed.
2002-02-12 11:45:29 AM  
bah we know the canadians are gonna win curling.... its hockey that matters..... hockey should count for at least 40 medals in the standings instead of 1
2002-02-12 11:45:50 AM  
I'm too lazy to look for this myself. Someone tell me the origins of this "sport" please. As far as I can tell, it is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.
2002-02-12 11:47:17 AM  
This is an hilarious victory. I want to be proud but all I can do is laugh.
2002-02-12 11:47:31 AM  
the American and Canadian teams play with Al-Oueda-members-heads, cast in granite. The handle is really a petrified beard. We all win at this game. HURRY HURRY HARRRRRRRRD!
2002-02-12 11:47:41 AM

Well that WOULD have been way funnier than the other headline, except for the part about the Doomsday clock, and not being funny.
2002-02-12 11:49:23 AM  
Hockey IS coming.
Remember the Last Olympics.
Nothing will Piss Canadians off more than
'The States' beating their team... Again.
2002-02-12 11:51:51 AM  
Don't put down curling.
Just because you don't find it exiting doesn't mean you have to biatch about it.

It's more of a sport than that 'wand' and 'ball' thing they have in the summer olympics. Curlings requires skill and strength. If americans don't win in a sport, then it 'should even be called a sport'. This is what annoys me about you guys.
2002-02-12 11:52:49 AM  
2002-02-12 11:53:00 AM  
well dammit I have a really funny curling picture but photoisland is being a pain the arse.

so sorry it may have to be saved for another day
2002-02-12 11:53:25 AM  
Just wait until Team Canada kicks a$$ in the men's hockey (women's hockey is not hockey)
2002-02-12 11:54:17 AM  
What about kickball??!?!?!

I bet Canada would beat us in kickball, bowling, cowchip tossing, and other 'sports' too.
2002-02-12 11:56:57 AM  

I think we'll survive
2002-02-12 12:03:43 PM  
Remember Nagano?


The games are far from over.
2002-02-12 12:05:42 PM  
curling is fun...i agree it may not be a "sport" in the same sense as Hockey or basketball but its farking fun as hell to play.
2002-02-12 12:07:03 PM  
"Real" curling (not this watered-down Olympic version) is a true test of athletic prowess. In what other sport would you pit a .27 blood alcohol level against a really slick, really hard sheet of ice? Of course, Canadians have an unfair advantage on two levels: 1) longer winters; 2) real beer.
2002-02-12 12:09:59 PM  
Curling is a sport. You compete. Figure skating is not a sport because it is based on a judgement. (For those who wish to argue that by that logic snowboarding is now a sport, remember snowboarding is graded on actual physical measurements such as rotations, amplitude, etc...)

I wish NBC would show all competitors for all events and I wish they'd take bridge & chess & monopoly and stick it in some sort of World Games
2002-02-12 12:13:02 PM  
Well, seeing as how Canada is a more winter sport country, I would hope they make a good showing....

Sydney: US=97
2002-02-12 12:13:40 PM  
Actually you won't survive. You will ALL die.

That is all.
2002-02-12 12:16:16 PM  
Maybe....but at least we'll have the most medals...."He does dies with the most medals wins"
