Invented in Scotland. Not a lot of sports require skill with a broom.

Goofy, sure. But I appreciate the precision of the sport. I try to catch a round or two when I watch the Olympics.

Now you've gone an offended the Canadian CP reader(s). It's kind of like shuffleboard on ice.


They said I could be anything, so I became a disappointment.

Whenever people make fun of me for following eSports, I point to curling.

Thank you curling.

First our declining morals slid, bit by bit, and then our very national spirit.  Then the collapse became greater and greater, and our principles began to go, until at last, it has come to this age, in which we can bear neither our crimes nor the cure for them.

I should think Curling's now a victim of Man made climate change in Balmy Jockoland.

Should try Crown Green bowling, now that's bowling for men - you have to push it uphill...
