Sweep Success

Reg Henry on the Olympics: "The epitome of made-up sports is curling. Let me just devastatingly observe: They use brooms in curling. Brooms should have no place in sports this side of witch racing. It's ridiculous. That just goes to show that the origins of that alleged sport were just a bunch of guys playing on a pond when they should have been sweeping rocks out of their kitchens as their wives told them to.   If ordinary winter activities are going to be made Olympic sports, why stop there? How about making sidewalk shoveling an Olympic event? Riding inner tubes down slopes? And, my personal favorite, paddle tennis?"
