Yes, I’ve always liked curling — but it was always my hair!
But now I have learned a little more about the sport of curling, because I watched a match between Switzerland and Canada this afternoon. It was actually fun to watch a game about which I know absolutely nothing (although it did remind me a little of bocce ball). And to see a huge auditorium full of cheering people all very intent on the game, and all of them apparently knowing the rules!
The women who were playing it particularly impressed me that they were agile enough to get down close enough to the ice that it looked like their foot was attached to their chest, and they still looked graceful!
I found it surprisingly enjoyable.
I give credit to Suldog, a recently acquired blogging friend, for whetting my appetite for the game of curling when he talked about it on his blog last week. The very interesting (and he’s always witty) post was entitled I’d Rather Be Curling and you can read it here.
Suldog, I’ll tell you all about the game of Euchre sometime in repayment of the favor! (And you don’t have to be nearly as agile for it as for curling!)
