Keeping the Streak Alive

Posted by glasscastle on 25th February 2006

PINEROLO, Italy (Reuters) – Britain’s match against the
United States for the men’s curling bronze medal was interrupted on Friday
when a male streaker ran across the ice.

With poultry for a loin cloth, the man vaulted the barriers and danced
up and down the side of the ice sheet for several minutes before being
bundled away by bemused rink attendants.

The British team, skipped by David Murdoch, who were lagging the U.S. 6-2
in the sixth end, rested on their brooms, laughing, while the streaker
jiggled past.

As armed police ejected the man, naked into the cold mountain air, he was
heard to plead in a Scottish accent: "Please will someone bring me
my clothes?"

The British team, made up of all Scots, went on to lose the game 8-6.

We KNEW there was some reason we couldn’t take out eyes off of the Olympic
Curling this time around…..
