We're Number Three!

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.

re: We're Number Three! 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.

re: We're Number Three! Alas, Tony Blair just plain sucks.

re: We're Number Three! The other colonials (Canadians) won the gold. Is Tony Blair sucking up to the new Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper too...?

Steve.
