I don't usually brag and boast, but I'll make an exception right now: there might be no person better qualified to copy and paste the embed code for this video of Vernon Davis curling than your author. Think about it: From September through December of 2005, I covered Davis as the Maryland football beat writer, and two months later, I spent the entire month of February covering Olympic curling in Pinerolo, Italy.
Has anyone ever covered Vernon Davis and curling in such close proximity? Highly doubtful. Plus, I used to live two blocks away from Vernon Davis's grandma.
(If you doubt my curling chops, See here, for example, in which I attended an Italian cover band's Dire Straights performance with the New Zealand curling team. Man, those were the days.)
Anyhow, for reasons unclear, the AP moved a two-minute video introduction to curling, starring Vernon Davis.
"I'm a hybrid athlete, I think i can do almost anything if i try," he says before taking the ice.
"I'm a big curling fan, I'm the biggest curling fan you'll ever find," he says at the end.
Aren't we all, Vernon.
