|You Are Curling|
|What you lack in athleticism, you make up for in concentration. And while curling isn't much more of a sport than bowling, you *can* win a gold medal for it!|
Bowling isn't a sport? It's more athletic than target shooting; it's less subjective than ice dance or the myriad of other highly questionable "sports" in the games. Results rarely turn on the quality of the equipment you use, as in downhill skiing, but on the quality of the play.
Actually, curling reminds me more of snooker than bowling, which is more like nine-ball....
If it uses a broom, it's not a sport. It's housework.
I've always maintained that "curling" is just a joke Canada is playing on the rest of the world.
Actually, it's strangely engrossing. Though, to be fair, I already like bowling and pool, so curling is a natural. The "brooms" are pretty high-tech at this point, too.
I still haven't figured out the teamwork aspects, but the sweepers seem to have an amazing ability to judge the speed necessary....
OK, ok. But synchronized swimming is our vengeance...
