I have a new lesbo crush these days -- on Anette Norberg, skip of the Swedish Women's Olympic Curling Team who recently defeated Canada for the gold medal in Vancouver. Here's why . . . .
She's in the hack. Her head is down as she prepares for her throw. Then, all of a sudden, she raises her head. Her intense blue eyes snap into "lock and load" position with focused, laser-like concentration. Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries starts to play . . . DA-da, da-da-da-DA-da! She glides forward on the ice and releases the Rock of Vengeance.
Anette Norberg is the Valkyrie Ice Queen of my heart. She is the relentless and merciless slayer of curlers who have been chosen by the Gods to fall to her awesome power. Ravens hover about her as she fulfills her destiny as Goddess of the Roaring Game, She Who Rules the Pebbled Ice.
Yes, Canadians take curling seriously. Why do you ask?
