Curling gets a bad rep on TV and such, but I find it fun to watch – its more strategic and delibrate. Skating and skiing are fun, but I can’t relate or get involved. With curling I can yell at the screen because I thought a stone should’ve been curled more or sweeped less.. meh, my two cents
I’ll take the Victory Ceremony tickets!
Would love to see the Olympic Bonspiel! I run an annual Bonspiel of my own with a group of friends. Pick me Coach!
