1. APhoto Fix: HBO’s apologies to anyone planning to watch the scintillating curline match between the US and Britain tonight … United States skip Pete Fenson yells after a shot during the bronze medal curling match against Great Britain in Pinerolo, Italy during the Turin 2006 Winter Olympic Games earlier today.
