You have probably seen this, but it cracks me up every time.

I had not seen it before.  Very cute!  I appreciate it since my Dad is the only person I know who ever participated in the wild and wacky sport of curling!

Curling is the only sport I love to watch where I don't know one thing about the scoring, shot selection, strategy, etc. Don't have a clue how it is played! Yet, I still love to watch. I amaze my own self in this regard. Ha!

My daughter (an adult!) made a joke about shuffleboard with her mop!  She then put a photo up of her with her mop and puck and said she's working out for the next olympics.  LOL  I also saw a clip of a broom and a cat -- use your imagination!!

 

I love curling, and also don't have a clue about what it is.

That video is really fun.

 

If I remember correctly, Canada introduced curling to the Olympics in the 1980s.  Nobody gave it a chance.  But it seems to be really hot.

My daughter told me she likes to watch curling.Hers and your responses are funny in that she doesn't understand it either.

I said is that the shuffleboard thing?

Yes.

I always think that is the strangest thing to have in the olympics!

Like hey why don't we have shuffleboard next-we can most of us all join.

And I think I would rather watch paint dry lol!

I must be missing something. They stand around like they are concentrating on something but I have no idea what it is!

Even more strange than the sport of curling itself, is the fact that a Russian competitor felt the need to apparently take performance enhancing drugs in the sport. Seriously?????  Is there nothing they won't cheat at? Even a sport that the doping wouldn't aid?

I didn't realize that Canada introduced it. It's a sport that originated in Scotland. The Scots have some interesting sports inventions: curling, caber throwing, and golf. Wonder why Scotland didn't introduce it. Perhaps they thought no one would take it seriously.

Though it originated in Scotland, I see no Scots fighting for the medal.  Hoot, man.
