Last time I went curling I saw plenty of people who would have tested positive for Labatt's, Molson, and Moosehead.

brantgoose: I was going to say "golf" but anything that a middle-aged white man can do well is not a sport.

Go out on the course right now. See how well you do compared to the pros. Go on.

And that goes double for curling, where strictly speaking, you don't necessarily have to be able to stand up, seeing as it was invented by drunk Scots who played it on ponds, thus making it a lot like sailing--a dull sport with an added risk of drowning.

But I'm not surprised when I think it through. After all, how many sports are there where you can do better by taking drugs to make you duller?

Baseball, golf, curling ... can you think of other sports where being dull, slow and deliberative is an asset?

And please, I'll do the Canadian jokes, thank you, as I am Canadian. Like Jews, we can joke self-deprecatory circles around non-members of our tribe.

Screw those 60 year old Swedes. Nobody can beat a middle-aged white Canadian at the dull sports.

Cricket is not an exception. We beat the English in 1865 and then gave the game up forever, except for the  games played on the lawn of Government House in Ottawa by Pakistanis and Jamaicans.

+1 to subby for not going for the obvious 'Armstrong tests positive' joke.
