Canadians are canuts

The future Mrs. NaturalBlog and I spent Sunday afternoon at the World Men's Curling Championships in Lowell, Mass.

By chance we sat in the Canadian fan section. These were not happy-go-lucky America Jr. types, though. They were the French kind of Canadians, rowdy Francophiles who'd come hundreds of miles to see their team.

They sang Who Let the Dogs Out in French. They drank Molson Ice out of cans. They did the chicken dance. They even gave me a Dr. Seuss-type hat with a maple leaf on it.

See if you can spot me:


But all the cheering in the world couldn't help the team. Canada lost to Scotland 7-4.

My favorite part of the day was the subtle joke the PA guy offered, when he played Sweet Caroline going into the 8th end, the same way they do at Fenway Park.

I think you are in the top right corner wearing a blue/green shirt with jeans on.

In other news, there will be a full moon tonight.
