Curling is possibly the most fun sport on earth. You have a skip, a thrower guy whose job it is to hurl the rock, and two sweepers who wear awesome shoes and their job is to polish the ice. The goal is to get your rocks closest to the center of the target at the other end of the ice as possible. The other team's goal is to knock your rocks out. Seriously, if there's a better sport than one which involves one team knocking the other's rocks out, I have yet to find it.
Also, I have serious olympic fever.
