A Sexy Celebration of “Curling is Cool Day”
If you experienced the Winter Olympics like we did last year, than you watched a ton of Curling! Wikipedia describes it as such:
Curling is a team Olympic sport in which stones are slid across a sheet of carefully prepared ice towards a target area. It is related to bowls, boule and shuffleboard.
Wow, bowls, boule AND shuffleboard? Now that is exciting! Trust me, that slightly under-indulgent synopsis does little justice to a really cool and relatively exciting sport. The scoring is a little bizarre, so, again I turn to Wiki:
After both teams have delivered eight stones, the team with the stone closest to the button is awarded one point for each of its own stones that is closer than the opponent’s closest stone. Stones that are not in the house (further from the centre than the outer edge of the 12-foot (3.7 m) ring) do not score even if no opponent’s stone is closer. A stone is considered in the house if any portion of its edge is over any portion of the 12-foot (3.7 m) ring. Since the bottom of the stone is rounded, a stone just barely in the house will not have any actual contact with the ring, which will pass under the rounded edge of the stone, but it still counts. This type of stone is known as a “biter”.
Right, like that. See, it’s a little convoluted, but that’s really beside the point. Why? Because you really ought to be watching Women’s Curling, that’s why! Oh sure, the men are all well and good, but they don’t have boobs! Or pert and prominent asses! Well, maybe some of them… look, this isn’t a road I’m going down right now. The point is: Women’s Curling is damn sexy and I have proof! Check it out, especially since it’s “Curling is Cool Day” Today! Yay! An excuse for hot chicks!
