Canada's Favorite

Hey there. This is bound to be Canada's most favorite post in the 3+ year history of Tales of an Angry Bird. Not that Canada reads this blog but still...if they ever stumble upon it...

First Up-Hockey!

The Colorado Avalanche are the worst team in the world!

Alright, that may be a bit much, but they are the worst team in the western conference. They lost to the Rangers last night 6-1. They had FOUR shots in the first period and the blue shirts had FOUR goals in that same period of time. Avs had a whopping 40 penalty minutes in the third period....I mean, what the fuck! It is so depressing...

Second- Curling! I attended the 2009 U.S. Olympic Curling Trials yesterday. You may remember me talking about it 17 months ago.

Well, the time has come and so yesterday Augustine of Hippo and myself attended the Mens Finals where we cheered on Team George and Team Shuster. The team i randomly chose (Team Shuster) won.

It was a close match with Tyler George, the skip, making a couple costly errors that cost his team the win. It was heartbreaking to see him lose. Even still it was very exciting game and I had a wonderful time. Below are some photos and a couple of videos i took of the match...

Shuster thowing the rock AND giving direction...




And, Team Shuster after the big win...



~So there's your U.S. Mens Curling Team. Cheer them on in 2010!


I am off to the Littleton Museum and then a rousing night of homework and presentation preperation...

I am feeling better but I still sound like a drag queen. This losing your voice thing is no good!
