The Scottish captain is quite sexy too, especially her accent.

And that curlers are younger, fitter and often quite sexy.
In saying that, I have been tempted to try the bowls club near me to see what it is like. Has anyone ever tried it?

Bowls is great, my Dad used to play indoors with a local club, he won the Club Cup a couple of times.
I had a go once, they put a small wooden board in the middle of the green to stop you doing a power drive to split up closely nestled bowls
It was done on a couple of long special carpet mats rolled out.

You'd enjoy curling so.
 
The margin for error is minimal but it's great fun.

Random thing which I discussed with Swedish colleague while watching Curling

You'd have to thing British teams would all be at a hindrance in regards to verbalisng tactics.

The Swedes obviously speak Swedish amongst each other and other nations outside of English speaking countries can respectively speak their own languages.

You'd imagine that at least someone on opposition teams  would speak English (Swedes would all speak fluent enough English).

You'd have to say that it would be similar for other sports too.

Saw the highlights of the women's ice hockey final yesterday - great entertainment. Canada had won gold in the last four winter Olympics I think and were up against 'Murica. It finished 2-2 and then went to a shoot-out which swayed this way and that before the States eventually emerged victorious. First game the Canadian women's team have lost at the winter Olympics in 24 appearances.
