Winter Olympics HNT

Once again, I pick a theme that seems like such a good idea. Right up to the point where I have to come up with my own. In spite of growing up in Montana, I don't do any of the typical winter sports, namely skiing, skating, or hunting. Snowboarding wasn't invented yet when I was a kid, and hockey is sort of an unknown around here. Needless to say, my lack of winter play sort of implies that I really don't have any winter sports gear, either.

Then it hit me! Back in the dark ages of TV, BCTV (Before Cable TV), we were able to get programming from Calgary. Can't remember the call letters, and it appears that they might have changed them. But it was like the early WTBS, but from Canada. Broadcasting to all of Canada and nearby states. We could watch the Calgary Stampede...live! And there was wrestling. And roller derby!!! But every Saturday afternoon, we would sit entranced and in awe, watching curling!

Ah, curling... Sort of like bowling--you can drink beer, anyone can play, and the facilities needed to house the sport are generally huge. In this case, cold, too. The sport is thought to have originated in Scotland, at about the same time that golf appeared, too. There are those who would argue the "sports" aspect of it. Granted, I doubt that many curlers spend hours upon hours in the weight room. But by the same token, there are numerous sports that don't require strength as much as they do precision, strategy, a light touch, teamwork and relatively inexpensive equipment!

We don't have much in the way of hockey rinks in this state, let alone curling centers. So if we want to attempt curling here, we have to do it the old fashioned way. Say, clearing the snow off the back sidewalk, exposing the 4 inches of ice that have formed underneath. Which is easy to do when your sport requires a broom (I miss the days of using actual brooms, rather than the high tech squeegee they use now...). Of course, in Montana, we generally have to do it at night, seeing as how we play it half-nekkid (gotta keep the shoes on...ice is damned cold!!)!


"She ain't into wine and roses
Beer just makes her turn up her nose
And, she can't stand the thought of sippin' champagne
No Cuervo Gold Margaritas
Just ain't enough good burn in tequila
She needs somethin' with a little more edge and a little more pain
She's my little whiskey Girl
My Ragged-on-the-edges girl
Ah, but I like 'em rough..."

Whiskey Girl ~ Toby Keith

Truth be known, this week's Mystery Guest is actually a big fan of beer, beef jerky, and has an affection for añejo tequila. But that doesn't change the fact that she's smokin'! A cigar, even! She'll be revealed on Thursday afternoon, but if you know who it is, be sure to stop by and hi!

BTW--I don't have anyone lined up for next week...


This week's MG is the fun-loving Roxy over at Westcoast Weirdo. Stop by to say hi (hint!--click on her HNT tab at the top of her page)!

Some good submissions over at "...the Other HNT" this week. Definitely NSFW. Be sure to stop by and support your fellow HNTers with some comment lovin'!
I don't think I mentioned this before...I had my 3-month appointment with the doctor last week. Basically, in my condition, there's three main things that I need to have under control--blood pressure, blood glucose and cholesterol. Well, my BP is good, my glucose levels are excellent, and the cholesterol is excellent! Other than that whole diabetes thing, I'm as healthy as a horse! Actually, I need to work on the weight and exercise, but even at that, I'm doing more for it than I have ever have before! So it looks like I'll be sticking around for awhile!
Symphony concert coming up next weekend, meaning all sorts of meetings and rehearsals until then. I might be sparse over the next ten days...nothing personal!

Ahhh, curling! I never understood it! Looks funny though, with the players furiously brooming the ice... Your idea rocks!

Sexy MG!

Glad to read your health's doing fine. Keep it up!

Well, I totally forgot there was a theme this week, so sadly, I'm only half-nekkid, there's nothing "Olympic" about it!

Barefoot Dreamer said...

I am up - without an Olympic theme... you can still come over if you want :)

Barefoot Dreamer said...

BTExpress said...

I don't think those shoes are "Official Curling" shoes. Nope, not official at all. Legs ain't bad though.

We had the pleasure of hosting the USA Olympic torch bearer a while back. She agreed to pose for HNT. I'm honored.

Happy Olympic HNT!

Midwestern City Boy said...

We are up at Married In Ohio with our Winter Olympics HNT post. There is some (unseen) nekidness but it's tame, especially for us. We participate in HNT for fun; but we can be serious when it's appropriate.

Sexie Sadie~ said...

Wow! MG IS smokin!

I am up!!

Evening said...

Great HNT! I looked at my broom this morning and almost took a pic with the same idea in mind. Your shot looks really cool.

I can't say that I know who the mystery guest is, but I'm definitely intrigued. So beautiful.

Have a great night. I'm up.

The Covert Lover said...

I haven't a clue what curling is, but I shall google it.
And super glad that you're healthy as a horse! ;)

I'm up. Wrong theme, but I'm up. hehe

Sam said...

Love your mystery guest, especially the click through!

And I like your attempt at curling.

Moosekahl said...

You are NOT allowed to drink beer on the curling ice! A spill screws up the ice pebble.

I'm up and making tracks in the snow...

Margaret said...

So glad you are going to be around for a while longer. :)

The MG is smokin' hot!

I am up.

peace...

vanimp said...

Mines up and boy oh boy does the MG this week have damn fine tastes hehe.

Richard, Shhh... said...

I'm up with an Ash Wednesday theme, sorta. I'm in the process of getting crucified so I'm blogging it & showing my below-navel tat for you. Leave me a note, will ya? It's a lonely damn world up on this cross!

Petal said...

I like your take on the theme, oh and your guest too!

I would have participated in the theme but its over 30deg c and 95% humidity here at the moment...not a snow flake in sight...

I'm up!

pixie said...

I choose a different Olympics to honour - I have less than 14 days to pack and relocate to a new state - I am competing in the "packing" games!

Happy HNT folks. This is the first HNT post on our new blog. I have been here before, maybe some of you recognize the pictures.

Amorous Rocker said...

I know that MG. ;) And DAMN. That bra/panty set is rockin' too.

I must admit, I cannot get in to curling. Cool picture though!

Glad to hear you're healthy as a horse, minus that one thing. <3

Happy HNT!

kate said...

Having to deal with 36 degrees C here in sunny SA, I did the Valentine thing!

No snow around here.

Happy HNT!!!!

carolynn said...

My second HNT. I missed the Curling, but I did hear about it. Here's wishing for warmer weather.

Hopelessly In Love said...

Fooled Around and Fell in Love is up to our ankles in the Olympic spirit! Mystery Girl ... Hmmmm... Let's see -- Lindsey Vonn???

not2shy said...

I'm up. I don't do any winter sports either I thought I was being really clever doing a curling based picture. No-one else would think of that, I thought :-)

Gorgeous MG. I'll be back later for the revealing.

Joanna Cake said...

LMAO... Nice legs! Great MG! And really good to hear that you have your diabetes under control. Now, get yourself to a yoga class pronto... There area always lots of women there if you need the extra incentive :P

Looks like we all struggled with the theme this week... but I managed, after a fashion. This might not be the sexiest HNT but it did make me laugh :)

Maggie said...

If I watched the Winter Olympics, I'd definitely watch curling. I'm up!

Another Suburban Mom said...

Love the photo of the mystery guest. She is smoking hot.

I'm up today with my own take on the olympics

tomvanallen said...

Are those regulation curling shoes?

There's too much snow here, so I'm inside:

Don't catch a cold! I'm glad everything is good health-wise :)

And that MG really *is* smoking!

I'm up!

HyperSexualGirl said...

Curling is always fascinating to watch. I actually think it's more interesting than many sports, because you don't have to know the rules to enjoy it.

I'm up!

Hubman said...

Your HNT reminds me of that old college intra-mural athletics standby, broomball!

Wow, MG is smokin'!!!!

I'm up and enjoying a change of scenery today!

Sexy MG! And, curling: oh so funny!

I'm up!

nitebyrd said...

Curling? Now, THAT'S a sport! ;) Nice legs!

Glad to here you're doing well.

I'm up!

Cosima said...

ok... I clicked on the picture expecting to see your shivering buttock, but nothing happened... how come? I am out of censor country, back in Hong Kong. Nothing from me yet though, it's too cold to go half-nekkid. You are very brave. Waiting for the temperatures to increase a couple of notches until I strip down to my undies.

Glad that your test results are good. Please don't take diabetes lightly. My dad has it, and he probably did too little. It's getting uglier every year for him.

Westcoast Weirdo said...

Yeah, well, there's no snow in SoCal so I had only so much to work with. LMAO!

It's been FOREVER since I've done HNT, but I finally got around to another one.

I really should try to do these more often.

Westopher said...

I've become slightly obsessed with the sport of curling this Olympic season...I don't know why!

This week another before and after: BELLY OFF!

Barefoot Dreamer said...

This is what I have decided. I need HNT for dummies/mommies - everybody's pic up on one page in large thumbnails that I can scan through and a comment box under each one. Seriously.... Just sayin

kittykillkill said...

Nice calves O!

Your MG is a hottie!

Glad that your health is on track.

Just so you know, I revisited the theme with an extra HNT in honour of Great Britain's first individual Winter Olympic gold for 30 years!
