Way to go Lappy!

As a curling fan, I always appreciate when corporations and companies extend themselves to support the sport, no matter what country they extend said support to. We all benefit when interest in the sport is increased, no matter what country receives the initial financial assistance.

Anyone can play with very little outlay of funds, and it's a healthy team activity. I personally enjoy the Bonspeil aspect of the game. (Drink and curl) I've always been a fan of Laphroaig and now they've given yet another reason to love and support their product!

I hope team USA does well at the Olympics, however, in this house it's still "Go TEAM CANADA Go!
