Curling - What Really Happened
Posted by c.smallz on Mar 23, 2011
Pretty much all of Duffy's memory of the event was true - but this is how I remember the last end.

It was madness out there for the other team - they could feel the mounting pressure of an insurgent attack at any moment. Yes. The same team that they had shamed in Game 2 of the season by aggressively sweeping in a 4th stone when they were already up like 10-1 was now about to possibly beat their ass a second week in a row.

Glued to the windows were the other two teams - they all new who the real winners were.

Duffy calmly locked in - and with a bit of a sweep here and there - he bumped their rock in the last round and we stuck 3 in the paint for the points.

The playoff was a forgone conclusion - we played to curling tradition - they played like they really cared to win.

In the end - our letting up was less of a sign of being tired and more of a moment of teaching of what real sporting ethics is about.

Duffy's shot had come up 6 inches short - but our victory was unmeasurable in feet or inches.

Onwards and forwards great friends - to the final frontier - there is no time and space that won't be touched by our curling apocalypse.

Next week's game will not be one between two last place teams - but rather a game of champions - fought over and battled the way curling was always meant to be played.

Get swept up in the fun of the game.
