Curling - the sport of Masters of the Universe

26 February 2010  |  4459 views  |  1

I like watching skating - mens, womens, pairs, ice dancing (yes, there is a difference). But since the UK hasn't had a contender on the ice since Torville and Dean (look them up) the BBC doesn't show any skating in prime time!

What they do show is curling. A sport where men and women slide stones on the ice and chase in front of them with brooms.

Well, now, according to the New York Times Wall Street-types like nothing more after a day of hiding the bonus checks than to watch curling on CNBC.

Who would have thought it?

That's because in their hunt for bigger bonus cheques they wish to leave no stone unturned!
