Sportsmanship and Etiquette

One of the things I really like about Curling is the courtesy.  Courtesy and sportsmanship aren't just good form, they're expected.  They're called for in the rules.

They're part of the spirit of the game.

The following is gleaned from the web, and edited somewhat for Arena Curling in warmer states.

Before the game:

During the game:

Courtesy is so often missing in our daily lives, and I really appreciate it on the ice.

A couple of unrelated topics:

For those who have been following along, I've added two mailing lists to the site -- you'll find sign-up forms on the contact page.  There is an RSS feed as well, you should see the RSS icon in the location bar in your browser.

I also have to comment about the weather.  Today is a beautiful, sunny day -- about 75 degrees outside, just like summer.  The ocean sparkles, and the palm trees are gently swaying in the wind.  It's wonderful, and I can't wait to hit the ice in about four hours.....

My shoes are here.
