Throwing Rocks at Houses, by j

Standard

Yesterday marks the beginning of the 2011 Tim Horton’s Brier here in town. Very exciting, since we are able to partake in the curling excitement. Last summer our parents’ gifted the grandparents’ with tickets to the event, and since Grams decided she wanted to watch the game at her own leisure at our place I got to go. I wasn’t sure how exciting I was going to find it, but there happened to be quite a lot going on. During the whole ordeal there are four games happening simultaneously. That means that groans of defeat and screams of victory all at the same time. Couple the sound with the um, shall we say “colourful” fans and you have yourself and it turns out curling isn’t so boring.

My personal favourite were the Alberta fans in their comically large yellow cowboy hats…with cow-bell.

The interesting fans almost make up for the ugly uniforms that they make the curlers wear.

And we got to see one of Canada’s most eligible bachelors, the third on Alberta’s team John Morris. He can wear that ugly top and not seem so gross.

"The Brad Pitt of Curling"

Random John Morris facts?

He’s 32.
He’s single.
He’s a firefighter.
He broke his finger in a bar fight three years ago, one week before the 2008 Brier. Read about here.
He’s dad is the inventor of The Stablizer.

We also got to watch the Quebec team do some curling. I am compelled to call the Quebec team the “renegade team” what with the bandannas and all. However the loudest screaming team goes to New Brunswick. They were screaming their heads off. Slightly frightening. Next match is this Tuesday…w00t!

About weywardsisters

The Three Weyward Sisters first appeared in Shakespeare’s “Macbeth”. It turns out we have more in common with these “weird” sisters than we thought. In the Shakespeare play the sisters represent darkness, chaos and conflict. We’ll leave it up to you to decide which of us represents each. They also usually show up to mark impending doom. Well, we certainly hope that our presence on this little corner of the Interwebs doesn’t mean impending doom for anyone. However, we find our commonalities with the witches in other ways. To be weyward means to be willful, disobedient and to turn away from what is “right or proper”. Those who know us would whole heartedly agree – we are three weyward sisters. We are three headstrong, stubborn (some more than others), obstinate and willful sisters. Read at your own risk.
