Monday Open Bar - So I Watched Curling

I spent most of late last night and early this morning watching curling. There's really not much going on, apart from an awesome announcement from a Mizzou football player. So you get light links. Enjoy!

Feel the rhythm! Feel the rhyme! Get on up! It's curling time!
