David Murdoch and his Great Britain Olympic squad blanked Team Randy Ferbey $57,000 to nil to win the 2010 Casino Rama Curling Skins Game (The Curling News photo by Anil Mungal).
Their total haul? $70,500 for two eight-end games.
For those who are interested, that’s some £42,000 in UK coin. Not at all poor.
And not at all unexpected from a “clever, methodical, calculating, cold-blooded killer.”
Crowds were strong for the event, with the 3,600-capacity Entertainment Centre counting an average of over 3,000 bodies for each of the three draws.
The athletes were, as usual, treated like royalty. Swag bags for each player included a GPS, shirts and sweaters, poker chips (but of course), a travel bag, gift certificates, and more.
Another year, another Skins Game. Thanks for following!
