    geez, ffjake! this was such a hoot! i have been asking everyone what the &)#* curling is all about, and you answered my question in detail. (i pointed out to a friend the other day that i don't sweep my floors, let alone go out and sweep the ice!) and your definition of short track speed skating was priceless. i wish your column was weekly - i could use more laughs like this. thank you, thank you!

    There's also a very good Canadian movie about curling (starring Paul Gross of "Due South"), entitled "Men with Brooms".

    I must be a demented individual, I actually enjoy watching curling. I find the strategy and the precision in which they slide the stones fascinating. I would love to give it a try. The sweeping part looks like too much work, though.

    Default HEY, Curling rocks....

    No pun intended. I have been a curling fan since the last Winter Olympics. You can get too much of a good thing sometimes however. And yes I have seen "Men with brooms" A very funny look at the sport and those who participate. The BEST thing about curling. Overweight men in their 40s CAN win Olympic gold.
    Happy Trails!
    Yeah it's a Jeep thing!

    Sheesh! I'll bet people that like to watch curling also like to watch professional bowling! LOL!

    (And having said that, I admit that in my younger days I used to be a very active bowler - especially during the "beer frames". )
