Russian Curling Team Awesomeness - Sochi 2014

Leave it to the brilliant Russians to devise a plan to invigorate a less than invigorating sport. Bravo Russia.

I will now be watching the curling competition and waving my Russian flag.

I would watch Curling if it involved firearms somehow, like that one event where they have to ski, shoot targets, ski, repeat.

I watch curling regularly, and have played it more times than I can count, so I will definitely be watching. But I don't expect the Russians to accomplish much.

They have a place in my house when the Olympics are over. I'll even supply the brooms.

I always say how boring it is and its not really a sport and so on, but 3 hours later your on the edge of your seat yelling "SWEEP TO THE LEFT"!

Last winter Olympics, I was working nightshift and had nothing better to do. NBC had all kinds of Olympic vids to watch and our shift at work got waaaaay into curling. We were screaming and yelling and getting all jacked up when someone got a 5 ender! Too bad the US team sucked last time. Maybe we'll do better this time around.

I sometimes work in a russian neighborhood in Philly... it seems like every Russian female under 30 is beautiful, every one over 35, not so much. They get very hefty and haggard quickly. Just an observation...

Re: Russian Curling Team Awesomeness - Sochi 2014

Strategy, skill, a bit of luck. Brief moments of action followed by longer stretches of watching the team talk, discuss options, and get set up for the next play.

Sounds a bit like the NFL.

I like that when the captain of the 2004 US Men's Curling Team was asked what the team training regimen is, he replied "We drink beer and go curling."
