To honor the games and the people participating in them, The Slanch Report will be bringing you TWICE DAILY the Hot Olympian of the Day. We will bring you every day two otherwise likely unknown-to-you Olympians who, while maybe not quite worthy of a place on the medal stand, certainly are worth being placed on a pedestal for us to enjoy. Celebrate them all on the Hot Olympians page.
Let's face it, curling is inane, and yet everyone is completely enraptured by it, it's hard to figure. I would never have imagined it'd be such a popular television event, but there you go. I do know why I liked watching the Russian women's team: Liudmila Privovkova and Anna Sidorova. While Liudmila, as team skip, garners most of the attention, fellow 19-year-old Anna Sidorova more than holds her own. It's like a Russian version of Betty and Veronica. Sort of.
OK. It isn't.
But Anna is a straight up stunner and makes me sad that I won't be seeing her on television any longer. She has absolutely mastered the stone-face stare and made it red-hot! Fortunately, the nucleus of this hot Russian squad is going to be around for quite some time. That's good news for us all.
