Default I'm going curling on Saturday

I feel so Canadian eh.

For those not familiar, curling is a sport where you slide "rocks" of granite down a 100 foot strip of ice to a target painted at the end. Four members to a team, two rocks each. Closest to the center after all eight rocks are thrown wins the end. Ten ends to a game. Simple enough. Armchair strategy galore. Can be quite exciting actually. And well...um...er...I...ee...uh...








Oh God I miss hockey

Cal

good luck - doing it might be okay, but I rather watch paint dry - more exciting

And - what is hockey? can you explain?

It's a sport where grown men beat each other with sticks until they can't handle it anymore. They then use their fists to try and impress their opinion of the other players mother onto each others faces. Oh ya, there's also a litlle rubber puck they try and slide into a goal.

You know roibm, I used to like your opinion of things.

How can it be boring when you get to have a between shots

That looks like cola, right?
I'd rather have some Click the image to open in full size. (rothaus) followed by some Click the image to open in full size.
and then some Click the image to open in full size. followed by Click the image to open in full size. or Click the image to open in full size. but not Click the image to open in full size.

Eventually it will not end with some Click the image to open in full size. or worst, Click the image to open in full size.

It looks like what we call petanque, but on ice
