"The Women of Curling" Calendar
What effect do you think this will have on the popularity of curling?
Women's curling is sure to receive a lot more exposure this year, thanks to a new international calendar that features nude and scantily clad female curlers.
One of the stars of the calendar is
Lynsay Ryan of Kelowna, B.C., the daughter of two-time world champion skip and 2006 Olympic hopeful Pat Ryan.And, of course, the calendar fits nicely with Colleen Jones' earlier suggestion that
Ryan, a 21-year-old student at Hamilton's McMaster University, found herself in July posing in a see-through sarong in the forests of Fussen, Germany.
“I sent him (her father) an e-mail,” Ryan said with a laugh. “I thought it might be better if he read about it and had time to think about it before he replied.”
I think the women are going to have to curl naked in order to get people out there.[thanks to John Chilton for the pointer]
I'm not kidding. You're going to have to hope for an Anna Kournikova to come along to really jazz it up.
Update: In the Hack is dismayed by the concept.
