Sport of Curling Tougher than it Looks! [VIDEO]
Don’t ask me what it is about the sport of curling. I remember watching the sport on Canadian television back in the late 60′s. It’s probably the one sport that rivets me to the screen during the Olympics. Am I crazy? Maybe, but I think my fascination for a sport that slides 40 pound granite rocks down a sheet of of ice at colored targets while a couple of guys sweep in front of it is quite appealing.
Now I’ve never done it, but I honestly think I’d like to give a try. It sure beats flying down a hill at breakneck speeds with a couple of boards strapped to your feet.
But it is difficult, and it takes finesse. WSJ Digital Network shows the sport in all it’s slippery details with a brief, yet ugly, tutorial.
