Senators Go Curling In Capitol Hill Hallway [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Colorado’s senators are celebrating the Winter Olympics by doing some training of their own. Sens. Cory Gardner (R) and Michael Bennet (D) on Wednesday posted a video of themselves curling in the hallway using brooms. Colorado sent 36 athletes to this year’s Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, according to The Denver Post. The video says that Colorado’s senators “decided to do some Olympic training of their own.”

I watched an hour of curling last night and still have no clue about the rules.

      May I make an exception to violence against women? I do not want to feel the wrath of Rebecca or Gay Old Lady if I smack this one.

    Curling is like watching ice melt.

    I mean… if you’re into it, go for it babe.

    • Gustav2

      Cute, that is what the ‘brooms’ are for, to melt the surface of ice.

      • another_steve

        Lol. Yes. 😉 There are actually very few rules in the game. Unlike, say, football.

        I’m married to a jock and he’s into football. So while I’m on JMG camping it up, he’s watching football. In season, of course.

        He tells me that after 50 years of following the sport, he still occasionally learns of a football rule he was unaware of.

          My hubby loves basketball.
          I’d rather watch paint dry.

          • another_steve

            At least basketball is fast-moving. Unlike, say, baseball.

            I once (only once) went to an actual baseball game. In a big stadium. With the hot dogs and the beer and everything.

            While there, my hair turned grey and fell out.

            My hubby’s work has a day at Safeco Field in Seattle. He says there is some amazing scenery on the concourses. Usually 20-30 year old bros going to the bathroom or concession stand, but still!

            To misquote someone whose name I can’t remember, Baseball is 15 minutes of action crammed into 3 hours.

  • JoeMyGod

    All the curling news has focused on the hotness of the female Russian, but I’m kinda digging the male Russian.

    • Hank

      Let us put a liter or two of Vodka into him, so he can claim he did not remember, what he did last night!!! Yum!!!

    • kareemachan

      I wouldn’t cross her – she looks like she means business!

      • Prost Seattle

        Like she rode to the arena on the broom and would put a hex on you for messing with her man?

    • ErikDC

      I was reading the rules of curling a couple days ago and learned there is a boundary called the “hog line.”

      I’d like to restrain with him a “hog line”. 😜

    • JaniceInToronto

      But, but Joe, he’s a man. How could that be?

    • jawnbc

      He definitely is working that savage slavic hawtness. BUT HE’S NO JOHNNY MO

  • Daniel E. Duclo

    Sorry couldn’t even make it to 30 seconds. That kind of vanilla, fake bullshit makes me sick.

    • Todd20036

      Yeah, that’s why I go only for kinky porn.

  • bkmn

    Its about the only other thing they can agree on other than being from Colorado and supporting legal recreational pot.

  • JoeMyGod
    • jawnbc

      To be fair, they won the mixed curling worlds a couple of years ago.

      Ohmigod… the scumbaggery of Trump’s appointees is boundless.

      • DenveRyk

        Sadly, he is a hold-over from Obama. But Hugh Janus did re-appoint him, so he is on this administrations chart now.

    • AmeriCanadian

      I like watching these butch men sweeping their brooms furiously. It makes me wonder what else they do furiously.

      • Treant

        My ex curls. And yeah, he does “other things” quite furiously as well.

    Curling scoring is easy. You play 8 rounds, and each team throws 8 stones per round. Whichever team has their stone closest to the center at the end of the round gets a point, and an additional point per stone for any closer to the center than their opponents closest stone.

      Thanks! Most of the commentators have been doing a good job explaining the various events, but for some reason, I missed the curling explanation. It’s got way more strategy than I realized back when I thought it was boring.

      Slo-Mo bocce on ice.

  • Ann Kah

    Google YouTube “Bus Bonspiel”. Curling just got a lot more fun.
