Olympic Curling is Totally Hot

brad gushue
Olympic curling has been on every morning now after 7am on the local USA channel 65. While team USA does not have a lot of hotties, I'm all aswoon for auburn-haired, 25 year-old ' Pride of Newfoundland and Labrador ' Canadian curling skip and hottie Brad Gushue.

And I have no idea what a 'skip' is in curling, but Brad is cute when he does it.

Isn't he a bit young for you? Young and cleanshaven? Or does he have that secret look of naughtiness hidden under that perfect cleancut look?

I'd happily go to the frigid lands of New Foundland to visit him. I understand Newfies put out extra heat under the sheets.

Why does everyone assume I'm looking for Naughty?

And it's clear from a cursory B.H.I. scan that he's got fur potential - look at the auburn down on his forearms. Auburns (as opposed to Ginger Kids/Daywalkers) are notoriously furry a lot of the time.

Plus he's just cute as a button!

I don't know what it is but Canadians are just plain hot hot hot period! Just so rugged and sexy - even the cleanshaven ones!

A skip is the captain of a team. He's the one in charge of the strategy, literally calling the shots. He also usually gets to shoot the last rocks every end (a game lasts 10 ends); those shots are generally the toughest.

And yes, he's adorable.
