[Quote of the Day] Curling = Fine WinePosted: February 26, 2010
“It is like drinking merlot.”
~Douglas A. Kass, the president of Seabreeze Partners, on Curling
When the closing bell has rung in the past few weeks, CNBC has been switching its coverage from the stock exchange to the sheets of ice up in the Vancouver Olympic Centre. According to the New York Times this morning, it’s making the financial analysts on Wall Street into all kinds of fans of curling.
“CNBC, whose market chatter is the background music on trading floors, switches to curling from Vancouver shortly after the closing bell.
“And so, after a day of braying for money in the markets, traders are winding down with curling. It is, fans say, a bit of after-market therapy. Curling is so slow and drawn out that it becomes mesmerizing.”
