Let's all go bloody curling

The Olympics are all about controversy, but the latest one is filled with intrigue at every bend, or curl in this case. It seems that the ice in the Olympic Curling tournament is not providing enough curve. In Curling lingo, it’s not “swingy” enough.

Furthermore, some of the games top players are worried that, get this, the tournament will be “boring” if the ice controversy keeps up. Enter Swedish ice master Leif Ohman, who is being held accountable by the “athletes” (oh how we use that term loosely) to setup the frozen stuff properly. Except that Ohman thinks they can stick their brooms where the sun don’t shine.

"Even if it's straight ice, it's the same for all the teams, they have to deal with it," Ohman said. "And it doesn't have to be boring. It depends on how you play. It's easy to play a boring game."

You can say that again.

I am not sure who you are and it is obvious to me that you have never played the game, because if you have ever had the chance to "throw a rock" you would be addicted like the rest of us and not making suggestions that the game is boring!! Curling is one of the fastest growing sports on the planet. I can't wait to hear you some day call the game on some local cable network, "that would be boring"

King of Curling obvioulsy needs to spend less time on the ice and more time in the classroom studying English comprehension. If you read the article, it talks about how the Olympic curlers thought the Oly tournament would be boring because the ice sucked.

Go thaw out that brain you moron!
