George Karrys, the Toronto publisher of "The Curling News," has produced a 2018 "Men of Curling" calendar. It features photos of international skips and sweepers who skipped much of their woolies to sweep to brawny glory in an Oslo restaurant. This may be the male ice rink version of the "Sports Illustrated" swimsuit issue.
John Landsteiner, of the US curling team, said, "A lot of older ladies up in Alberta or Saskatchewan are going to buy those things up." He may be right: most of the 10,000 print run has been purchased.
On the other hand, we know a few older ladies in Alberta and Saskatchewan who might want to go after Landsteiner with brooms of their own.
