11:30 AM -- The Guardian laments the Motherland's loss to the Colonists in the bronze medal round of the men's curling competition in Turin. Yet not all was doom and/or gloom:

    Things were briefly interrupted at 6-2 when a streaker, using a rubber chicken to protect his modesty, ran up and down the ice. As he was bundled out of the arena, shouting "Please will someone get me my clothes?" in a Scottish accent, the British team rested on their brooms and laughed.

    It was the tonic the Brits needed...
Ah yes. A naked Scot with a rubber chicken – that unfailing unguent when the English sporting spirit starts to chafe a bit.

No doubt the 'plucky' defeat was arranged by Tony Blair as another suck-up to George W -- the moral victory clearly belongs to the Great Britain team.

The other colonials (Canadians) won the gold. Is Tony Blair sucking up to the new Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper too...?

Steve.
