    Is anybody else getting into the curling on TV? I am and find myself watching the entire competition until they go onto another sport. I don't know why this is, but the sport just is interesting to me with all the strategy involved. Anybody else?

    I also find myself attracted to Denmark's womens team (with the black skirts)! So, that also helps to watch! :yes:

    Getting into? I've been into curling since the 2002 Olympics. Hell, some of my friends and I talked about starting up a club team at ISU shortly afterwards (nothing ever came of it).

    Fun, strategic game. I enjoy it.

    Do you think if we wrote enough letters to ESPN they'd start showing curling competitions instead of Poker?

    It wouldn't hurt... I would love to see them run some late at night, they could probably just borrow the feed from some Canadian station.

    Don't they own the main sports network in Canada? I'm guessing the already hold some coverage rights.

    Someone needs to open a ten lane curling facility here in Des Moines... I imagine it is pretty expensive to maintain though.

    I'm starting to wonder who's worse - Shuster from the men's team, or McCormick from the women's team... :err:

    I am loving curling. I watch pretty much every hockey game and a ton of curling.
