Okay, so it's not the Olympics, but it's not too far off.

One of the members of my curling club was on the winning team at the US Juniors National Curling tournament. Which means that he will be going to Korea next month for the World's.

He'll miss the club Men's Bonspiel, but I guess we can give him a pass on this one. ;-)
This will make two people in the club with offical "Team USA" jackets.

The "good news/bad news" is that next week I get to curl against him. ;-)

And here is the bio of my club-mate:

It's been said that asking a curler to tell you about the game is like asking a phone company to tell you about their long-distance options. Chances are, you'll learn much more than you expected. It's a great sport, and easy to get into. As an added bonus, drinking is actually in the rules (not sure if they use these rules at the Olympics or not); the winning team has to buy the first round. If you are in anyplace cold enough for a curling club (and there are clubs in Scotsdale Arizona, and Garner North Carolina), I highly recommend checking it out; probably the easiest Olympic sport to get involved in, and great exercise.
