Curl It Up!

Since the last Winter Olympics, I've been absolutely fascinated by the sport of curling. It seems as though I am not the only one in Southern California as clubs have sprouted up since then as well. I found one in Simi Valley and one in Hollywood. I'm definitely going to hit one of the upcoming clinics and give it a try for myself.

Olympic Curling has grabbed the spotlight much more this this time around it seems. The Norwegian team has been making fashion statements. Team Canada showed the world that one can be pregnant and an Olympian at the same time. Unfortunately, Team USA hasn't fared so well in these Olympic games. Both men's and women's squads have lost more rounds than they have won.

I won't even try to explain the rules or strategy for curling since I am still learning. I did find this link that has plenty to read to help get you up to speed.

Have you ever tried curling?

A friend of mine and her daughter went curling this weekend. They said that many of the curlers play golf in the "off season." I found that interesting.

I may try it next year.

I heard they are golf fans as well.

I spent a bit of time watching it this weekend myself. I'm going to make it to one of the classes in the next few weeks and can't wait!
