Guilty as charged

I'm coming clean: I love curling. Yes, that matches are three hours long. Yes, the rules are more than a little arcane. Yes, it's about as action packed as chess on ESPN-2 (but I watch that, too).

It's the strategy that I love -- put down a guard when you're laying two go for the kill in the four-foot? Is there any match for the excitement of stealing one in the 9th end, then winning it in the 11th?

The only thing that could make it better would be if the U.S. women's team, led by America's sweetheart wannabees Cassie and Jamie Johnson, weren't so awful.
