    Just not really into it - really no idea why. Maybe because they are so self centered individuals. Who knows

    I watch it when there are events I am interested in. The athletes have invested years in practice for these game, I enjoy watching that level of talent.

    I enjoy watching the Summer Olympics more since I have actually participated in several of those sports. Outside of ice hockey (and skiing a few times), I haven't competed in any Winter Olympic sports.

    Again you are wrong. Hot chicks curling in yoga pants is the norm in any of the three Curling Clubs in my neighborhood.

    Curling is basically a drinking sport. here they only sell soda and beer but anyone can bring any booze they choose to drink. Most who do not finish their bottle just leaves it there. Always great kitchens.

    This is the little club in Duluth but it had a great history. it and the St Paul club have long histories.

    This one is New. It has a incredible kitchen. huge Tap room and outside grounds for tent events Right in the center of town.

    In our Curling Club in St Paul they stack the beer kegs against the wall along the lane keeping them cold.
    It's funny to see.

    I would think it is very similar to going out bowling

    So, let me see if I understand this: food, beer, booze?

    Like I said:

    I was watching the Bronze medal mixed pair curling match between Norway and Olympic Athletes from Russia (OAR). Upon further review, the competitors (especially sweepers) have to do some nimble footwork to get around the stones that have already been thrown...while walking on ice.
