Wiki

Curling is a team game with similarities to bowls and shuffleboard, played by two teams of four players each on a rectangular sheet of carefully prepared ice. Teams take turns sliding heavy, polished granite stones down the ice towards the target (called the house). Two sweepers with brooms accompany each rock and use timing equipment and their best judgment, along with direction from their teammates, to help direct the stones to their resting place. The complex nature of stone placement and shot selection has led some to refer to curling as "chess on ice.”

I don't know why but I am just fascinated with this sport whenever I come across it. It looks so easy and one wonders how much athletic prowess is actually required. Still I find myself mesmorized and I might watch it for an entire hour. Just something a bit out of the ordinary I guess.
