I should really buy some gloves.

It's a bit odd in a hockey game when a player loses a stick, but by the time he scrambles to retrieve it, everyone's forgotten about it.

When a curling broom skitters across the ice, though, it's a bit worse.

But even that isn't too bad -- sweeping takes a lot of quick motions, right? You try to change your grip, and your hand fumbles.

If only I were that lucky. No, this morning I was calling a shot as the skip.

"All right, I want a guard over--" *swoosh* *clatter* *skid* "--over where I'm now pointing."

There's a reason our team's called the Flaming Disasters, you see.
