Sharp Dressed Men























As the New Gushues jet home from Portage today, they are near the end of their two-week run as cover boys for The Current, the street mag of their home city in St. John’s.

The story, plus more great photos by Sara Rostotski, can be downloaded via PDF (about 6mb) from the mag website... but only until November 1.

’Course, every girl’s crazy ’bout a ...

Meanwhile, across this grand world of curling:

• JHCurl has his blogopinions up – and some photos – on NYC’s Korbel gig ...

• Manitoba curling maven Resby Coutts not only produces the online journal The Curler, he also hosts the long-running Rock Talk radio show on Winnipeg’s CFRW 1290. The show moves from a dullish Sunday morning to Monday nights at 7:00pm (that’s 8:00pm ET), effective tonight, and one and all can tune in via the internet here. Also, selected show excerpts can be dowloaded as mp3 files here ...

According to Jet Boots, Winnipeg’s upcoming Tim Hortons Brier will release two ticket packages for sale on Friday, the “Early Riser” and “Late Show.” Jet Boots also asks Ticketmaster users to quote his club code ...

Here’s a nice feature on the one-year-old Nutmeg, the newest curling club in Connecticut. Of course, a pile of determined Nutmeggers helped out in New Yawk this past weekend ...

• More from Mendacious D ...

• More curling for hockey’s San Jose Sharks – remember this? – as they took to the “other” ice once again in Banff, Alberta ...

Is this the last hurrah for Bas? Well, it will be if they don’t get the darned ice in already! ...

• Finally, Detroit CC had an open house yesterday ...

There are actually two curling clubs in Connecticut, the other being the Norfolk curling club, founded 1962.
