    I have never even understood the concept of curling. Push a stone while someone sweeps the ice in front of it...... Sounds like cleaning which sucks.

    First off, you don't push the stone. If you push it will wobble out of control and all your friends who came to watch your intramural game will laugh at you.

    Re: Team USA needs new stone throwers for Curling

    i am at home with a sick kid so i watched them against the germans earlier. they were schooled then too.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Re: Team USA needs new stone throwers for Curling

    It sounds like they had a tourney about a year ago and these guys won and became the US team. I think it would be better if they went with more of an All-Star team.

    Re: Team USA needs new stone throwers for Curling

    The lady commentating the women's games seems to have a rather large chip on her shoulder. She must have been on the team that lost to become the US team.

    Not to get too far off topic but I was rather disappointed in the US Womens Hockey team last night. They shut it down in the 3rd period.

    I agree, they should've gone for the jugular and tried to set records.

    I tell you... It was that damn Olympic spirit of doing the right thing and showing mercy. What a bunch of crap. The Olympics are about winning medals and kicking ***. Screw the big sportsmanship chirade. Just win and if possible dominate doing it.
