Just Win Baby

VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Deciding to relieve the skip of his duties smacks of desperation.

But that’s exactly what the American men’s team opted to do on Friday when John Shuster not only stepped down as skip but was sent to the sidelines. Apparently it was head coach Phill Drobnick and the American coaching staff who made the call to bench Shuster following Team USA’s fourth straight loss.

“We needed to do something,” Drobnick said. “From here on out, we’re taking it game by game. We’ll meet tonight again and decide what lineup we are going to put out there.”
What is great about all this macho talk is that this is curling we are talking about.

Love that. And love that tat.
