The question is, are you watching it for the sport, or for the twins on the American team?

I know, it doesn't seem very "Olympic". But I'm surprised at the strategy that is involved at times.

Curling has got to be the single most retarded sport I have ever seen in an organized fashion in my life? At least the people who play it know they have a future as janitors if the sport ever goes under.

LOL

I've watched some Curling (not this years Olympics yet, tho). I think it is an awesome sport. The accuracy and technique required just amaze me. I'd like to give it a try sometime.
