I’m a Curling convert

curling1 Im a Curling convertTom and Maria can make fun of me all they want.  It all started in Flagstaff last Saturday night. I don’t know why, but I had a heck of a time trying to sleep.  So after an hour or so of tossin’ and turnin’, I flipped on the tv and surfed the channels until I landed on the Olympics….more 

It was at that point about 1:30 in the morning, so for all practical purposes anything should have put me to sleep.  But there it was on the screen:  Olympic Curling.  I sat there for an hour an a half not knowing anything about the game rules, strategy, or scoring.  I still don’t know that much about it, but  there is a strange fascination about it that I cannot explain.  I’ll leave that  to the Canadian in this video.

Thank God the Diamondbacks start spring training practice tomorrow.  My baseball diversion won’t arrive a moment too soon to take me away from this madness.

Hear that?  It’s Tom and Maria laughing out loud.
