I can’t say that the sport of curling is raising its esteem in my eyes with the participation of a pregnant stone-slider on the Canadian Olympic women’s team.

Granted, Kristie Moore is an alternate, so chances are good she won’t actually play. But she is on the squad, which means she’ll share in the anticipated bounty:

Team Canada is the gold-medal favorite in the women’s curling event, which begins Tuesday and runs through Friday of next week. Even if Moore doesn’t play, she will receive any medal Canada wins.

Which, to me, begs the question: Since she’s curling for two, shouldn’t Moore receive an extra medal? Baby is on board, after all. The kid deserves his/her own five-ring bling, just for being there.
