Olympics Fever

The crowd at the 2010 Olympic wasn’t a usual curling crowd: at least, not what we were used to, what the player were used to. Curling is a sport of skill and focus, it was certainly hard to keep concentrate all the time, but players had to get used it because it was the Olympics Fever.

Team Bernard, being the home team, had certainly more cheering then other teams. How many time did we heard “Let’s go Canada Let’s go, let’s go Canada let’s go”? Susan seemed to be the one more annoyed by that at the beginning: she even let’s slipped a little comment on air. But the girl quickly got used to it because she played one hell of a curling at the games.

Here some of the comments from Cheryl after the first match, where she had the scream like crazy.

“Oh my God, I have a pounding headache — it’s the adrenalin and having to yell so loud,” added Bernard with a laugh. “It’s a little weird to get used to that I’ve never heard that before in my life, except at a Flames game.”

“It’s a louder crowd than what I’ve ever seen before. ... Sometimes it’s a little loud maybe when you don’t want it to be, but it is Olympics and people are having the best time and they’re cheering on their country,” Bernard said. “The younger players, probably it’s a little bit new, but what an experience for them to be getting. They’re never going to ever have a crowd probably like that again, and so nothing will bother them from this point on. ... I think I’d panic if it got quiet now.”

You’ll see it will be a little different during the Grey Power Players’ championship!
