    I am a pretty big fan of curling and the 06 olympics taught me what it was. I feel as if my weekend goes slower when i'm watching it so instead of a day have 24 hours if I watch curling it seems like I have like 50 hours. I guess since it's so boring... I love it but what about you?

    I didn't really watch that much of it, but I know a lot of people enjoy it. According to a poll on the NBC Olympics website, curling was the 2nd most favorite sport to watch at the Winter Olympics.

    I was a bit surprised to see a new topic on this board. No one has been here that much in the last 3 months.

    I love curling and enjoyed watching it during the Olympics.  Our men's team was phenomenal and our women's team was just hot with the exception of the fat girl that tipped the ice.

    I think curling doesn't belong in the Olympics. It's dull and static.

    It's not really that dull, it's actually kinda exciting.

    I loved following curling at the Olympics this year, I was especially impressed with the Canadian men's team who won gold in a spectacular final against Finland

    I'm not a big fan of curling. However I live here in Newfoundland, and that's where Team Gushue is from. We even got the afternoon of to see the finals (which he won).

    I really like watching the strategy involved in curling. Reminds me of chess, but on ice! I wish I could play down here in Florida.

    Curling.  What can I say about Curling?  Curling is a sport that really stands out in my mind, and whenever I think about it I consider it the number one sport in the world...on my most hated list.  If there is a worse sport out there, I am yet to find it.  All it essentially is is lawn bowls on ice.  I really acn't see why anyone can possibly develop an interest in the sport.  Maybe I say that because I'm Australian, and we do not have any real winter sports (none revolving around ice and/or snow), thus we don't develop the interest in those kinds of sports.

    I think that the original poster summed it up brilliantly (despite enjoying the sport) that watching is like having the clock slow right down and the day stretches out.  I, like anyone, would want my weekends to go longer, but I also want to enjoy my weekends.

    jbeauchamp17- Thanks for the props. I can't watch it for more than 20 minutes a day because it's so dull. I think your right on the money. I don't like it I think it's stupid but yet my weekend seems so much longer watching it. It's amazing I watch curling for an hour and i'm like "well time to go to bed" and it's like 5 PM LOL!. Don't even get me started. Me and a friend were watching it one time to see who could watch it longer without going crazy, he won I couldn't take it. I got up and left and he won I think the 5 dollar bet lol. So the only reason to watch curling is if you want to see who can sustain torture longer. I do enjoy watching it as =long as it's less than 20 minutes. Then I go balisitc.
