WE COME FROM FRA... CANADA


So ... if you're a bad person and you haven't been keeping up with this olympic fortnight's steady stream of fantastic curling action, then 1.) I hate you, and 2.) you have missed out on what is possibly my favorite "fanwear" phenomenon of ... cripes, at least the new millenium. I am speaking, of course, of the "Stonehead" hats worn by the rabid, beer-guzzling fans of the MWB's unofficial second-favorite sport. Estimated time before Jeff is scouring online Olympic merchandise suppliers to try and buy one: :06 minutes...

Couple things...
1. I found myself captivated by the US/Japan Women's Curling match yesterday. Seriously, how are these hot sisters not household names by now? Doesn't is just seem though that Curling is one of those things that any of us could do? I'm sure there is much more too it, just like NASCAR is more than just driving in circles, but c'mon, they're pushing a rock down a sheet of ice. If i had known there were going to be ladies the likes of the Johnson sisters, i would be a Curling master right now.

2. The fighting 'Snoggles went down last night to Seton Hall. That makes me :( is so many ways.

3. Looks like Jimmy O'Brien won his suit against The Ohio State University. To this i say "who cares". Seriously, if they would solicit the alums, who wouldn't throw in some extra money every year to pay him off? I know I would. Hell, I would have thrown in some extra money 5 years ago to get rid of him. His biggest downfall? Scoonie only had 2 years of eligibility left. I've never understood the coaching mentality of going out of state to get your guys. This doesn't just apply to Ohio, a veritable gold mine of talent every year, but ANY state. You have to put up the wall and keep the home guys home, and Jimmy just didn't want to do that. He did, however, put up a nice fence around Serbia (which at least got us the Boban).

1.) You should be captivated by curling whenever it's on. You guys think I'm kidding, but if I ever have the time, and one comes on, you're getting some SOC on some hot CBC Curling action. Manitoba! Saskatchewan! Prince Edward Island!

2.) The U.S. Curling Sisters are more "cute" than "hot," but there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that, especially when they're as adorable as those two:

3.) That game was not 'Snoglicious. Seton Hall is apparently knocking on the door of the Big Dance, but the bigger question is WHY ARE APPROXIMATELY ZERO WEST VIRGINIA GAMES TELEVISED?!? FOR THE LAST TIME, I AM NOT BUYING ESPNU!!!

4.) Fuck Jim O'Brien. I loved him when the team was perpetually underrated, but after he fucked the program up so badly, he's dead to me now. I don't know how the hell we "wrongfully" fired him, but whatever.

so much to say about this post, but only have time to point out that WV's 5 remaining reg. season games are all televised (3 on ESPN, 2 on CBS)
