    Smile Oh, those Russians...

    The 2014 World Women’s Curling Championship concluded in my home town of Saint John yesterday. Of course I wanted Canada to do well (they won the silver medal), but my biggest hope was to see Team Russia have a great week. Pleased to say that Russia qualified for the playoffs for the first time in tournament history, and finished with a thrilling come from behind victory to win the Bronze medal. Better still, I had tickets and saw it happen in person.

    Left to right: Canada (silver), Switzerland (gold) and Russia (bronze) team skips...


    Russian skip Anna Sidorova shows her appreciation after her team's Bronze medal win...

    Oh, to be that sheet of ice.

    Had the pleasure to meet Team Russia twice during the week, getting signatures from all members on both the event programme and a Russian flag. Autograph session on Friday...


    All in all, a really fun week. I saw quite a few games live in person, including both medal matches. The highlight was definitely Russia's bronze medal victory - that was one to remember for a long time.

    For a closer look at a few of the Team Russia members, check out my picture threads for Anna Sidorova, Alexandra Saitova and Ekaterina Galkina.

    Lastly, for a bit of fun, Team Russia gets the 'South Park' treatment...

    It was a quick smooch, right after she won the game. Just before leaving the rink, she turned back and a blew a kiss to the ice...or maybe it was meant for me. Yeah, probably me.

    You should have painted a Russian flag on your dick and told them a part of you wants to join with the motherland.

    I'd probably be branded neanderthal if I made a comment about women and brooms.

    So I won't.
