Can't believe one of my favorite columnists did an article on this "sport." And way to pick the perfect poster boy for the photo with his little sailor socks and the earing.

This is the Winter Olympics, the sports that are competed in ALL have to do with winter activities and the nations that have snow and ice. You non atheletes should try out the game and you guys should wear a helmet so you don't hurt your melon.

I'd be willing to bet that more people from "nations with snow and ice" practice the art of ice fishing or snowmobiling that curling. And I stand by my opinion of nature boy's socks. Although I notice that after my posting, the Pioneer Press cropped the picture.

I must admit that I watched the Curling matches when the U.S was playing. It became mesmerizing to see how they could place the stone where they wanted it. There was a lot more strategy to the game than I was aware of. Whether it is a sport or not, I will leave to others to argue about.

I would rather read "I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell" by Tucker Max than to watch curling.
