I watched curling today. The US men lost to Germany 7 to 5. The U S team is a huge underdog. After watching today I am updating my description of the sport. Shuffleboard, bowling, chess and a lot of finesse. By the way, the reason it’s called curling is because the sweepers cause the stone to ‘curl’ as it travels down the sheet of ice.
