Exactly What is Curling?
I have noticed that curling has gotten kind of a bad rap around here lately. It’s actually quite understandable; it is one hell of a dorky-looking sport. Between the brooms and the matching warm-up suits, it’s tough to look at curlers and call them athletes.

1. A Dozen of people watch Curling
2. Ranked the number 1 broom related sport
3. Not to be confused w/ Norwegian sport Carling when you push a guy named    
   Carl down the ice.
4. That thing they slide down the ice is called "thing they slide down the ice"
5.  Longest match ever unknown because no one ever stays to the end. 

Does anybody really understand Curling?

i play it at bars sometimes. it's on a long thin table covered with sand. the only real rule is: don't drop the slider guy on your foot cause that hurts like an mf. everything else is just kinda guidelines for scorekeeping which is really a moot thing since the score card will inevitable be spilled on or forgotten if not written down. and that's shuffleboard in a nutshell.

I think it was invented to get a bunch of suckers to clean up the ice for free before the real events use it.

sigh Curling is an awesome sport, and one I happen to love watching every Winter Olympics.

And no other event would use sheets of ice that are like 150x20 ft.

Like I told you before ... it's Ice Shuffleboard. 
Alaskan cruises?  Fine.
Retirement villas in Canada?  Fine.
Olympics?  I vote NO.

Curling sucks!!! Curling is not a sport... To be a sport it requires people to be athletic, and thats not an athletic event!!!
What's up with the broom?  
#12 | 1710 days ago

(Edited by The_Real_Stoney)
well, it may not be the greatest sport in the world, but it's fun to play at least..
Oh, and a lot of Canadians are actually pissed about the venue where they are holding the event only holds 5,000 people

Curling is when a gal rolls her hair the night before and expects lots of bouncing curls the next morning.

I live where they have held tourneys called the silver broom. combine bowling with shuffle board, but when you toss the rock you sweep the ice in front to make it go better ,oh i forgot score is kept like horse shoes. another famous drinking game, the winners have to buy the beer after ,Ive tried it it's weird.    what ever happened to speed skates, guy in uncle SAM costume jumping 55 gal drums....never making it....    REACT TO ME.......

If it was a Wii game, I would hate it.  I mean, I'd completely dominate at it and PWN any takers, just cuz I got mad Wii skills like that.  But I'd still hate it.
