    yes, condemn that which you do not understand.

    it's actually quite fun, to watch and to play.

    and the U.S. has a pair of twins that play on the female side....my goodness...

    There are several Curling leagues here in MN. While I would never do it - because I think its kind of odd.
    Its pretty popular here.

    Curling is my favorite olympic sport!!!! It is true!! All the matches would come on at 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning during the olympics, which was perfect for me since I work third shift.

    Plus the Women on the US curling team are really good looking, take a look here:

    Yeah, it is terribly annoying and insanely boring and doesn't deserve to be a sport considering it doesn't take any athletic ability whatsoever.
    Uh, no.

    The sweeps can walk over 2 miles in just one end!

    It also takes skill and technique!

    No, you have to make the puck go to the center of the target. The closer you get the more points you will receive. You need to use the right strenght and speed to make the puck stay right on target. The moping will make it more farther or closer, depending on how far they want the puck to go. Pushing an opponent's puck will make them take less points.

    I actually like that, because I know that it is not easy to hit it right on target.

    But really, it is entertaining. I remember an instructor left a tv turned on before our class, and the entire class was watching curling before our instructor came. We wanted to keep watching haha

    The game is thought to be invented in late medieval Scotland, with the first written reference to a contest using stones on ice coming from the records of Paisley Abbey, Renfrew, in February, 1541. (Scotland created golf too)

    Curling has been an official sport in the Winter Olympic Games since the 1998 Winter Olympics.

    The level of precision and complex nature of the strategic thinking required to win has led curling to be referred to as "chess on ice."

    In 2001, curling was named the official sport of the Canadian province of Saskatchewan.

    In the 2006 Olympics, half of the U.S. men's and women's curling teams hailed from the small Minnesota town of Bemidji, population 13,000.

    ....umm yeah thats nice and all I just thought it was pretty funny when I had a chance to catch it on TV While me and my daughter sat throw a Dora cartoon she was watching. It just looked pretty weird when I flipped through ansd saw two people on each side scraping the ground with push brooms as fast as they can to make the floor slick for the puk or whatever they call that thing.
