Have you ever Curled?

Curling is my new favorite Olympic sport. It's like bowling, target practice and swiffer sweepers combined. And they yell (in support or direction, I'm not sure) at their team mates. That part I like to watch but let me tell you it wouldn't go over well if I was on the team. I don't do well with yelling. But back to Curling, I like to imagine how it got started in medieval Scotland. Just thinking about it makes me laugh. Just hanging out, outside on a frozen pond, sweeping rocks.

In case you haven't seen this sport here's a good video. I have no idea what they're saying but you'll get the idea.

No I have never curled before. In fact I haven't really even been watching the Olympics. I'm really not much of a sports watcher.

Wow! Looks a little intense, but love the sliding with the ball to give it the right speed part. Very interesting sport! The black and white photo on this post is fantastic!

Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
