I was on a remote assignment in Greenland for a year and one of the few stations they'd pipe in was the CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Corp.). They would play professional curling...and the sport kind of grew on me after awhile. It's like bowling with brooms!!!snapdragen said:
north dakota isn't curling country- canada is curling country. you guys are curling posers!!!physasst said:know much about it, cept it's basically like shuffleboard on ice. My wifes hometown in upper northwest north dakota, now that's curling country, I felt like an idiot cause I didn't know what a BONSPIEL was, apparently it is a curling tournament. They take it pretty seriously up there. That deer hunting, hockey, and snowmobiling are huge. It's a shame that no one up there bikes, because the town she grew up in has a pop. of like 1000 people and the nearest city of more than 500 is two hours in any direction, except canada, which is only like 35 minutes, but the state has spent a fortune and built all of these great roads and there is little traffic. Of course the traffic that is there is going 70mph plus...but great roads.
Is bowling an Olympiuc sport? I can even see that because bowling alleys are everywhere, but curling alleys? Never seen one. Is dart throwing an olympic sport?kpcw said:There are HOT chicks on ice rolling rocks? I'll watch it/hit it/whatev
