And that should do it!
According to local lore, Christ didn't commit any miracles while residing in Japan, but instead was just an extremely pleasant fellow to be around.

Got to hand it to Jacobs' crew: a week ago few of us believed he should have even made it to Sochi. 9-3 in the final in only eight ends is pretty remarkable.

I see Jacobs' wife is wearing non-canadian mittens. A shame that such accoutrements could sully such a fine moment.

Jacobs and crew seem to be in pretty good shape... Is this the future of curling?

Well Team Jacobs are about the most unlikeable Canadian medalists, but double gold in curling pretty much makes these games better than Vancouver could have ever dreamed to be.

However in the most shocking turn of events, Shuster wasn't last.

It's too bad all the people that could really run the Habs are busy doing talk radio, writing blogs or posting on message boards.

Now, Lajoie is an imbecile, a cretin and a plagiarist, who to use author Dany Laferrière's deliciously withering expression, "lives beyond his intellectual means."

Well, there's a history of doping on team Jacobs.

So these guys are over the top, but most top teams these days are more focused on health and fitness more then ever before.

Personal info time: I've curled for 24 years, topped out after making the provincial playdowns in Ontario and getting my arse whooped by Howard and middaugh and realizing there's no money in it.

Curling is like Home for a Rest. Beloved by white people everywhere in Canada outside of Quebec.

You guys are really learning about the RoC this week.

Men's skiing slalom, men's biathlon relay, four man bobsleigh, both cross-country mass start, both parallel snowboard slaloms, both speed skating team pursuit, and the hockey final are left...up in the air, I guess.
