to all of those involved in sports welfare and the national endowment for the arts -- maybe its time to get a real job- and quit expecting the next door neighbor to lower their lifestyles to raise yours-- the sky will not fall if the US doesnt win any medals- its just a game----- it may be more interesting to watch the regular working folks compete against the professionals

Members of Canadian curling teams all have jobs. There are ni "professional" curlers in Canada, yet, Canada has won more world championships than anyone else in both men's and women's and has never finished out of the medals at the Olympics in both men's and women's. Usually the United States finishes near the bottom in both world championship and Olympic competition. This article and concept is yet anther excuse made by Americans and yet more American bawling. When will Americans stop crying and finding excuses for their failures in curling and everything else and realize that in curling, as in many other way (health care, guns, finance, government) Canada beats the United States by miles in everything. When it comes to curling, Canadian curlers all have jobs and a full life outside of curling, and always beats the US by mile in that too.

I used to curl but I quite.
It got in the way of my drinking.
