Overheard at the Old Rookery One Night

One of the etiquette rules of curling essentially states “if you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all”.   I remember a night, a long time ago, when the keen but cranky old skip, Cameron McManus, a true son of The Land of Cakes, lost a game owing to the bad play of one member of his rink.

McManus turning on the under-performing player with a sardonic grin, the Scotchman remarked:  “Eh, mon, you’ll ne’er mak’ a curler in this world and you’ll ne’er see ice in the next”.

Old nimble-chops,
Angus MacTavish
