Matt Tait, Lawrence Journal World talks to Ian Wolfe, Kansas City Curling Club

“It’s kind of like the every-day person’s sport,” Wolfe said. “The unique part is that some of the best curlers in the world still have full-time jobs. So it’s not that they’re dedicated to curling from the time they’re 5 years old and never stop. You can curl at any age. You don’t necessarily peak when you’re 22 years old. Some of the best curlers in the world are actually in their 50s.”

kansas_city_star_logoJim Fussell, Star reporter ,  writes about his experience in learning to curl.

 

"And then, I arrived. In my first attempt to learn the trademark curling slide necessary to propel the 40-pound icy rock toward the round target (called the house), I failed to execute the preferred form. Sprawled cartoonishly on the ground, arms extended and legs splayed, I looked more like a perp who’d been hit by a Taser. "

“There’s a great strategy to the game, and when you watch curling at the Olympic level you really see it in play,” said Chris Nazar, a native of the Toronto area who came to Kansas City for a job transfer. “Oh, it’s definitely a sport. You break a sweat when you’re sweeping.”

Homer

Homer takes Marge out for a romantic evening of ice skating and hand-holding, but upon entering the rink, they encounter a curling team practicing. Marge and Homer take to the ice and discover their love for the sport, and soon after, join the curling team and compete with them in the Olympic trials. Team Springfield claims the win and moves on to the 2010 Vancouver Games where Bob Costas (guest-voicing as himself) covers the action. Meanwhile, sleazy vendors introduce Lisa to the world of collecting Olympic pins, and before long, Lisa is hopelessly addicted.

TAKES AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE SPORT OF CURLING

WHEN THE EMMY®-WINNING SHOW RETURNS TUESDAY, FEB. 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO®

Segments include:

 

*Sweep This! If you’ve ever watched the Winter Olympics on TV and wondered how a bunch of people sliding rocks across the ice and sweeping with brooms became a sport, let alone an Olympic sport, you’re not alone.  While curling hasn’t exactly gone mainstream here in the United States, it’s a national obsession north of the border.   REAL SPORTS correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels to Canada to see what all the excitement’s about and visits Duluth, Minn., to take an inside look at the sport with a bartender, substitute teacher, construction worker and parole officer, aka the U.S. Olympic Curling team.  Interviews include: U.S. Curling team members – John Benton, Phil Drobnick (coach), Jeff Isaacson, Chris Plys, John Shuster and Jason Smith; Toronto Globe columnist Bob Weeks; Canadian curler Glenn Howard; Ice maker Mark Shurek; amateur curler Eleanor McKitrick.
