Curling Team Disqualified for Being “Too Drunk to Play”

The curling team of Jamie Koe, Ryan Fry, Chris Schille and DJ Kidby was ejected from the Red Deer Curling Classic after showing up drunk for a 4:30 p.m. game. The side played three-handed as Koe was too drunk to play, while Fry, a gold medallist at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, broke three brooms and swore repeatedly. Fry later said in a statement, “My actions were truly disrespectful and embarrassing — the committee was right to disqualify us from play… I wish nothing more than to apologize to everyone individually.”
