    I also find it breathtaking. It's like chess on ice.

    The most eagerly awaited sporting event of the games.

    Go the Aussies !!!

    are there any other fans of curling?
    the only sport where you can nap and play at the same time

    I think I would prefer to be the player that releases the stone. Infinite fitness and skill is necessary for this position. Sweeping just looks like hard work and mostly a waste of time.

    Looking forward to the Aussies taking gold.

    If you are ever in perth I will take you to the local rink
    Really hard to get a ticket to spectate but I am lucky enough to have the right connections so don't worry I can get you in.
    Major tournament's held in perth all year round teams from far away countries take part in this fantastic game.
    Glad you are a fan any time you fancy a go on the legendary Dewar's rink in perth the birth place of curling just ask me.

    Why would anyone enjoy watching people sweep the floor?

    I agree. We don't get too see much curling here in the USA, since Americans would rather watch a bunch of men with overactive pituitary glands, ram a ball through a hoop. European sports are superior.

    Just proves it's a good 'clean' sport
    No swearing spitting diving wearing padded gear and crash helmets.

    The floor of the curling rink is always spotless. Not sure why they keep sweeping it but hey, it adds to the incredible excitement of the sport.

    I see Australia are currently ranked no. 28 in both the mens and womens.

    Expect a vast improvement over the next few years. We're expecting to medal in at least one of the two.

    A recent state game attracted a crowd of 42,000 fans over here. When NSW snatched the title in the last few seconds there was pandemonium. In the ensuing violence 8 people were hospitalised and 12 people were arrested.

    What a game !!!!

    best game in the world we have been playing it in perth since 1511, the year not 11 minutes past 3 just in case some one jumps in.

    non stop excitement unlike padded rugby, i mean how can a game meant to last 60 minutes take FOUR AND A HALF HOURS TO PLAY. perhaps to sell more hot dogs?

    We haven't been playing it for that long over here but the game is growing in leaps and bounds.

    The sale of brooms has skyrocketed over here.

    Members of the Australian curling team are treated like sporting Gods over here. Absolute legends !!!

    Phil Taylor is a fan. He can relate to the sport.

    Chaney3's team got beaten 1-0 by CSKA. Bad luck dude.

    Hey have you seen the curling skip that plays for Ontario Rachel Homan. One of the hottest women in sport. She could turn anyone into a curling fan.

    What's the chances of GB (the Scots) winning gold at the next winter Olympics? The most sought after medal of the games.
