I was kidding of course. I had NO idea that Curling was so widespread and it seems that today was The Day … NYTimes story, CNBC video and a friend of ours told us he ‘found his winter hobby’ and went and actually joined a Curling club. We’re not making this up – we only WISH we were that creative. Have seen the pictures of our friend actually on the Curling track/field/place with all the trimmings – whatever it is they are called.
