PYEONGCHANG, KOREA. In other news, the unorthodox methods of the Scottie Curling Team seem to paying off. The team, sponsored by the Middle Fork Scottie Ranch, Lyons, CO are in the finals and are favored for the gold medal. They play the Newcastle Corgies in the best of 10 ends.
Scottie Coach, Angus McFee said, “Scotties are quite suited for the sport of Curling. They love the ice and are very sturdy and compact … those rocks can really knock you about if you are not careful. I don’t know how those Corgies have gotten this far. They are a bit too long in the body for Curling. Now the Skeleton … that’s a sport for Corgies. But I wish them the best of luck in the finals. I’m so proud of my wee team. They are all in for the fun and excitement.”

Middle Fork Scottie Ranch, Lyons, CO — really?
This seems quite amusing. If I were really into Curling, I would probably enjoy even more.
Well — If I had a scottie ranch, that’s where it would be. 🙂 The skeleton is that sport where the corgi shoots down an ice tunnel on top of a little sled — head first. Eeek!
