    I just feel that I need to get that off of my chest. I've watched, tried to like it, but it's dumb. I can think of more worthy games that should be played. It just bugs me.

    Tron, I figured you to be a curler. Guess I was wrong.

    Well, I've been cooped up all day in my shop and perhaps I inhaled a bit too much lacquer thinner, not sure. But I just got done watching some curling and it infuriated me...why, I don't know.

    Joe,

    Stop your whining. The US had their butts kicked by the Canadians. Mary loved it.

    Now go work my my Browning!!! I want to go pheasant hunting before spring.

    Tron I'm glad you said it. I can't believe they waste that much air time on the dumbest sport on earth. The only reason they have curling is they can't watch grass grow in the Northern latitudes.

    I enjoy watching curling because of the strategy and the intensity on the player's faces. I can understand someone's dislike as it is not a popular sport in the USA. It is a team sport.

    I agree with Zardozforty, some of the women players are not hard to look at. I did get bored with men's curling real quick.

    If the Olympics would mandate the same uniforms as for beach vollyball, I bet the popularity of women's curling would go way up!

    I like to watch some of the women.

    I'm still willing to bet that if you searched Tron's garage/shop you would find a curling stone/rock. LOL

    I loved to watch curling, it is so nice to see hot women in sports other than beach volleyball. Although I agree the uniform for women's curling should be bikini's.
