What a crazy day! Through osmosis I've become a curling expert...well, sort of.
First up on Thursday, I had a good look around the Formula One paddock and pit lane that is taking shape inside the Sochi Olympic Park as, come October 12, the sport makes it's debut in Russia.
It's not finished yet as construction has stopped during the Olympics and Paralympics, but organisers plan for the track to be ready 90 days before the inaugural Russian Grand Prix.
From there off to meet David Murdoch, skip of the GB men's curling team and of course the three other stars who have guaranteed team GB another medal - will it be silver or gold?
Gold is obviously the plan and the team, although shattered, did appear to possess the resolve and desire to go one more time.
Silly of me really to question their resolve, these boys remind me of the Rocky films, well the first two at least - they just won't give up no matter what a beating they may get.
Greg Drummond, Scott Andrews and Michael Goodfellow clearly admire and respect their skip Dave Murdoch. They follow him into battle, not just because he's a good bloke, but because he's had 12 years of trying for an Olympic medal. He's won everything else.
Then there's an even more personal story. When Murdoch was 10 years old he watched with utter astonishment and fear as Pan Am Flight 103 fell so tragically from the sky.
He was in his parents' car a quarter of a mile from the crash. He's from Lockerbie, he's incredibly proud of the town and there's a part of him that wants to win for Lockerbie.
Murdoch though, appeared unfazed by the task ahead of him, he just kept saying 'what an opportunity, what a chance.'
Later in the day, Team GB secured another medal as the women's curlers won bronze by beating Switzerland. Thank goodness.
I don't say that as a one-eyed Brit or anything parochial like that, I say that because I feared for the sanity of skip eve Muirhead if she hadn't won!
Clearly annoyed by their defeat in the semi-finals, Muirhead and company pretty much strangled the life out of the Swiss. Yes, they made an early mistake, but from the sixth end onwards Muirhead was in charge - honestly she was.
Meeting with Muirhead, Vicki Adams and their coach Rhona Howie - who won curling gold so memorably in 2002 - after the match it was almost like the weight of the world was now off their shoulders. Smiles, sighs of relief and a few more smiles.
I've never seen such a big smile on Eve Muirhead's face. But perhaps Vicki Adams summed up how they were feeling best; "Oh I was like a swan, all serene on the top, but underneath frantically panicking away!"
