    Olympic Curling Movie Name Contest, 2/19/10

    Remember the Jamaican Bobsledding Team movie "Cool Runnings" back in 1993? I'm thinking that it's time for the American Olympic Curling Team to be immortalized in a movie too but we need a title that will really grab the audience. Any suggestions?

    I'll go with "American Stoners" to start.

    "Booooor-ing!"

    The sequel would be "Still Booooor-ing!"

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    You all are thinking too small. Curling obviously needs a television show like UFC or WWF. Curlers need to be hyped with special curling names ("Granite," "Stone," and "Rock" [but not "Chip"]) for the men, and "Agate," "Onyx," and "Jade" for the women). The actual game needs to be ramped up a bit. First, put a chainlink fence around it. Then allow full-contact curling, or maye have half-pipe curling. Put logos on the stones, from Bud, Nike, No-Doz, whatever. We need someone who can take curling to the next level, building on the intense consumer interest generated by these Olympic games.

    Thank you?

    As for a movie name, if we're limited to that, how about Cold Stone Killers
