Curling involves sliding a 40 pound rock down an icy surface, aiming for a bulls-eye. Whoever gets closest wins. I think. This explains how fun it is:
The language of curlers is amusing for those new to the game, say watching it on TV for the first time. “HARD! HARD! HARD!” you’ll hear them roar to entice the folks with brooms to brush the ice harder (which causes the ice to melt, which causes the rock to slide more). I couldn’t find any good videos demonstrating it.
I think this is the first sport-related post ever on Steel White Table besides chess.
