We got home a little while ago from a shopping excursion trying to find sleds for the kids. We did not buy the pieces of foam that sold for $30, nor did we buy the luge sleds that cost $40. I believe my kids will be going down our hill on cardboard boxes this winter.
Anyhew.. when we got back the kids were tired and sat down to watch a bit of TV. They chose to watch curling. Curling! What the hell is that sport about? There seemed to be teams of 4 people, both men and women. There are 3 broom guys, one behind the huge puck/ball thing, and 2 in front of it. And a 4th guy who pushes the huge puck/ball thing down the ice with the broom folks brushing the ice in front of it, trying to get it into a target. That's pretty much all we gleaned from this sport.
We did get totally into that new lugy-type sport called the skeleton. I'd love to do that. It looks like so much fun to go belly down on this tiny sled around a luge track at around 80 mph. Scary but fun.
So, who knows anything about curling? Stumble It! JBlog Me
