Time for some humour, in hopes that there are creative people around.
American sports television network ESPN have a killer plan on how to make curling a mainstream sport. They have an interesting idea of who should be in the USA curling team at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Ð¡Ð¾Ñ‡Ð¸. Given how popular curling is (not), this was retweeted quite a few times and it got my attention.
We’re going on the record right now and beginning a campaign to recruit the Red Hot Chili Peppers to represent the U.S. at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Just think about it for a second – Anthony Kiedis as the long-haired Skip, Flea as his unpredictable Vice, Minnesota-born drummer Chad Smith as the Second, and on-again off-again guitarist John Frusciante as the Lead. Come to think of it, one-time replacement Dave Navarro can even be the alternate.
This has to happen, and if we all band together (pun approved!), it will. Because if Team U.S.A. can’t medal with skill, they can at least leave their mark on the Winter Games with a little style. And after all, what’s more stylish than a world famous alternative rock band/curling team that rocks out with their red, white, and blue socks out?
As the commenter on the original Can curling go mainstream through alternative rock? article added, John’s no longer with the band, but say, doesn’t this seems like something one’d be crazy to miss? Isn’t any man’s dream to be the Lead of a curling team at the Olympics at the mere age of forty-four, with the rest of the team being over fifty? Thank you for a ray of sunshine on a rainy Thursday, dear ESPN.
