I love it........it just fascinates me

I really don't understand it, and everone seems to hate it/bash it..............but I love it............

The only results during this OS games I look at in the paper are those for curling. :oops:
If there happens to be curling on the TV, I'm stuck.
And it's damn slow and beautiful...
And silly or maybe innoscent.

It's a sport invented by janitors at hockey rings, that were into bowling. :wink:

Kinda like petanque in slow motion on ice.

Yeah, i love it too... I just realized that what they throw and call "stone" is actually made of ice too, apparently. I'm also amazed how they can broome hectically without looking and ever thouching the other stones 8O

I'd love to see curling training camp. Do they use different brooms there? My adreneline can't take the excitement though and the clothing is nowhere as cool as pro bowling.

What pleases me most today is that the Finnish olympic curling team so rules - currently at least. KOVAA! KOVAA!!! :D

Sorry but, to agree with another thread, isn't there a Curling forum somewhere else for all you sad lonely bastards to correspond with each other? :D

Anyhoo, Ableton Live is great, isn't it? Go Live!!!!

Do Curlers listen to music?
