Olympic curing starts tonight at 12 am EST. Do you think Curling is a sport?
More so than sliding down a hill.
Curing or curling?
Hardly anything in the Olympics is a sport, most are merely athletic events/competitions.
It's not a sport, it's a boring arguably-physical activity.
It's a sport. I just don't see why. But I don't like sports in general, so I guess I can't really comment on which sports are better than others.
sure. I don't see why not.
They throw rocks and sweep the floor
That they do. But you could simplify many sports to absurdity.
On par with bowling. But I enjoy it.
Yes! I will not be watching it at 12 am though...
Not a very entertaining one.
Absolutely. And it's harder than it looks too.
Have you tried it before?
Yeah. We have off ice figure skating at the same place as the curling rink, so once we decided to give it a whirl. It's fun, but a lot harder than expected.
It seems like an interesting sport. I've never played it myself but I enjoy watching it.
SOI- lost my hockey virginity today playing 3 v 3 pick up pond hockey (I scored a few times)
Holy crap never say lost and virginity in the same sentence again. That scared the socks off me just glancing at it.
But fun :) did you play at night? Sooo much fun.
Well it is nigh and I'm not playing… so no. I was out from 1-4pm
Don't worry. He already lost it to his cousin :p
Hey I was skating then too :) sorta. More just keep away from little kids. But definitely try sometime. It's kinda like night skiing, it's just more fun.
Lol MrE I almost forgot about that...
I didn't really fall but I tripped up a few times. Phones about to die so I sec.
Well that's to be expected. As long as you didn't do a stag jump or something like that I would consider it success.
Lol sorry I forget you don't know all this stuff. It's similar to a split jump if that helps? Basically a weird form of it can happen when falling.
Oh like a stag in ice when the legs all go different directions? No that did not happen. But I did score like 3 times!!
Wow! Did the other peeps know how to play?
...and that's when I know I'm tired. My wording goes insane. Peeps...
I don't care about you using the word peeps. And yes they knew how to play jerk. They were actually good. I just went in front of the goalie and threw the puck at the net
:) lol sorry but I had to ask.
But my right ankle was rubbed raw by the skate. And Yes I had socks.
Well it only gets better from here on out until you're, say, the equivalent of U12. Then skates get nasty to break in again.
But I spose you're not 12, so you won't need new skates
-_- you are killing me sis. Why do I have a feeling you are just cracking up at home.
Because it's true ? ;) nah, you're doing well by the sounds of it. But you have to understand I'll find humor in anyone starting to skate...
I know it is true. And I'm sorry we all can't be all star cheese heads
Well you COULD be... I have no objections. But I gotta go, so night.
If I move to WI it's for Scott Walker. Nothing else. Night. Btw I noticed the name change.
Hey you still on?
Yah waz up?
Nothing really. I just don't feel like calling it a night yet. So what'd you think of the Olympics so far?
My Austrians aren't doing too bad. USA has GOT to pass Norway!!
Ugh I know. Team skating was sorta disappointing. But why the Austrians?
I'm 25% Austrian!
I guess I knew that. What sports are they strong on?
Honestly I have no idea! I just look at the events and try to see if I can figure out what is going on.
Same. After hockey and figure skating I'm lost. All I know is that the US is good in those two...
I don't even know figure skating. Hockey I do!
How do you think it will go? I think Canada is stronger of a team, but it's pretty neck and neck.
I'm hoping team Russia can beat Canada. We are in trouble this year to falling to them again. Especially with Tavares on Canada!!!
I don't know how you can be so against Canada with Tavares...
I want Canada to lose every game 4-3 with Tavares score a hat trick!!
. . . . . I just want the same for the USA with the guy from WI (I forget his name)
You want cheese head to win gold! I don't want canada to medal
Sorry I'm not sure if my phone died or I feel asleep first... But both happened. And I want a cheese head to get silver.
Can you believe that russian!!
People sweeping the floor trying to move rocks? It's a chore not a sport.
Rumor is that's how the pyramids were built.
