    The Olympics takes away from the true spirit of the game: getting totally sh1tfaced and throwing forty pound rocks at one another.

    I can see that this is a long dark cold Northern way to pass winter, eh?

    Many beers and shoot, let's slide this granite chunk down the ice.

    On paper curling seems odd but in person its fun to watch - I've watched it on TV many times.

    Sumo wrestling is the same - years ago I would watch the English version of a Japanese nightly news program. The best parts where the wrestling sumo tournaments. :)

    I dig it! I think it's cool to watch and if the "local" area group weren't so far away I may actually try it out!

    most things can be fun... JUST ADD BEER!:monkeydance:

    Hell yeah. I have always been fascinated by curling.

    The Milwaukee Curling Club meets weekly & they always have ads in the papers saying if you are interested they will teach you. If I hadn't been bitten by the skiing bug, I might have taken it up...hell, I might go check it out anyway.

    It would be much better if they breathalize you before you play, and if you aren't legally drunk, you don't get to play.

    Edit: fixed horrific tense changes.




    I've been known to watch. It's not my favorite sport to watch by any means, but it's entertaining.

    Only Canada could make a curling movie.

    Curling started with beer. Then they added the part with the rocks just to have something to do between the beer parts.

    Curling is better than baseball. Strategy AND beer that does not take 4hours to come to a conclusion.


    Plus you don't often see a pitcher on the mound screaming "HARRRRD! HARRRRD!" from the mound in his best pirate voice as the ball is on its way to the batter.

    Just when I thought it wasn't possible to think any more highly of you, you use a Bushism. :)

    I was in a curling league a while ago. Something to do while drinking. And the sheet keeps your beer cold while you're tossin rocks.

    It's sure not something that should be in the olympics, though.
    Like baseball: ok to play while drunk, but not good to watch sober.
