Curling! (the sport)

Vhhhattt is deeeeeseee?


It almost looks as though our incapable blogmistress is playing a sport!
Let’s take a look…


Toque? Check!
Team Canada jersey? Check!
Left foot covered in clear packing tape? CHECK!

Yes, it’s true.
Stephanie played a sport.
And yes, curling is a sport.
Don’t believe me?
You try hurdling a 34 lb rock down a sheet of ice while not overshooting or undershooting. Oh, and aim towards a big ol’bullseye.

By the end of the two hours, my gloves were off, sleeves were up and hat was removed.
You chase a rock down a sheet of ice, pushing with one foot and sliding with the other while whisking a burlap covered brush!

As far as injuries, I fell over almost every time I threw the rock and in one of my woo-woo-woo-ing falls, I overstretched something in my inner thigh.

All in all, not too bad.
I’d do it again!

Reasons why curling is awesome:
– you can drink while playing
– the sound of two rocks hitting each other
– women yelling “HARD!” over and over again

Older Brother played that at uni! He was a “sweeper” mostly.

You have a cunning hat! (Firefly reference) I’d wind up falling on my arse!

“Ladies and gentlemen, take my advice. Pull down your pants and slide on the ice!”

if you can drink beer whilst curling, it is my second favorite sport. behind bowling. which also requires beer.

Curling is so cool. And I feel a bunch of “women sweeping” jokes coming into my brain…thanks for the inspiration!
