I wrote this four years ago about curling. Hey, if I don't copy and paste this now, I may as well wait four years. Here goes:
I've tried a few different times to understand curling. I bought a bag of cheese curls. I found a bunch of those bugs that curl up into balls and tried to teach them right from wrong. I even did what most people do when they need information: I used Wikipedia, which told me in its first line, "Curling is a sport in which players slide stones across a sheet of ice towards a target area which is segmented into four concentric rings."
