Taken out of context, curling seems strange. There is a lot of yelling, a lot of sweeping, and the stones matter in some mystical way that is never really clear. Like most things we Americans don't understand, we write it off as irrelevant. This, however, is dismissing an entire sport that is fascinating when you learn more about it. While there are brooms and yelling, curling requires expertise, skill, a healthy dose of physics, and a dash of luck.
