Streaker Runs Across Ice in Curling Match

Streaker Runs Across Ice in Curling Match

Feb 24 7:07 PM US/Eastern

PINEROLO, Italy

The men's bronze medal match Friday was interrupted by a streaker. Midway through the United States' 8-6 win over Britain, a man wearing what appeared to be a strategically placed rubber chicken ran onto one of the covered sheets of ice not being used in that session.

He danced around for a bit but never tried to approach any of the players.

Curlers probably feel a little safer than most athletes _ it's hard for intruders to run across ice, especially if they're naked. John Shuster said he never felt in danger.

"Olympic security's been amazing here," he said. "We weren't worried at all."

A couple of security officials from the venue hovered near the streaker for several seconds before finally covering him and leading him away.

Male or female streaker??? Never mind, that will be impossible to determine until after the spring that.

A couple of security officials from the venue hovered near the streaker for several seconds before finally covering him and leading him away.

"The streaker was later released by authorities, after the local magistrate declined to charge the man with indecent exposure. When asked why the streaker wasn't charged, officials shrugged their shoulders, pointed to the streaker's nether region, and said: "Insufficient evidence."

His Excellency the VP would have brought that quail chicken incident under control in split second. Would serve it right, too.

Curling's growing on me. I wouldn't buy tickets, but it's more fun to watch on TV. Maybe it's part of the aging process. LOL

The anarchist part of me has to smile at this chap. Making a mockery of the olympics and all.

But he should have done this during the figure skating instead.
