My wife is obsessed with watching this, for some reason, so I've been having to pay attention to it the last few days.

The US apparently is pretty bad in this sport. The men's team conceded defeat after the 8th end (think the mercy rule in baseball after 6) against China and is now 0-2.

The women might be worse. They just conceded a match against Great Britain in which they were trailing 12-3 after the sixth end. They set OLYMPIC HISTORY by allowing 7 points in the third end alone. 7 Posted Imageing points in one end in curling is akin to a 15-run inning in baseball. These things just do not happen.

Where do we go to get some good curlers? Our women need some heppin.

Pretty sure it's just because we reserve shuffleboard for 80 year olds and dry land.

Maybe because we focus on real sports and don't consider household chores as worthy athletic endeavors?

Is that where they sweep this ice to make the thingy go the direction they want? Shuffleboard with brooms on ice?

yes

And once you learn the rules, you start to appreciate it. Very strategic sport. I still don't get why the skip yells so much after they throw the rock down the ice, though.

It cant be that hard to be good with practice.  I mean, how much natural ability does it take?  It's mainly just a mind game.

Which means one thing........yall join me in taking over the world in curling.  We can do this
