Hockey heads turn into curling fans

Gotta love it when athletes from the other sports show up to cheer on the Canadian curlers. In Vancouver, as best as I could tell, the only other member of Team Canada to grace the curling facility was hockey coach Mike Babcock. Now I'll give many of the other Canadians a pass as it was a bit of a hike to get out to the curling rink.

In Sochi, as I understand it, most of the facilities are quite close together as well as the Athlete's Village. It makes it easier to move about. And so just about every member of the Canadian hockey team showed up to watch Brad Jacobs and his rink take on Great Britain today. (Of course the fact that there was room for 25 or so people to come in to watch says something about ticket sales.)

One of the Stone-head curling hats also made its way around the team, including goaltender Roberto Longo who Tweeted his picture of it and pledged his support of the Canadian rock stars.
