So, the Winter Olympics are under way and so far the big news seems to be about Bob Costas and pink eye, dirty water, no toilets, and summer-like temperatures.

None of those things, however, will do anything to keep me from enjoying the women's curling event this year. One reason is that the United States team was supposed to have a reasonably good shot at a medal this year. Unfortunately they started out slow and are 0-2 so far.

The other reason? Russia's curling equivalent of Maria Sharapova. Click here to see what I mean.
