I must be outta my mind. I have become fascinated with the Olympic Curling Competition. I remember it from the last Winter Olympics and I was mesmerized by it then. The outfits, the techniques, the way the stone (yeah, I know what it's called) gently floats across the ice. What really blows my mind is the team member, brushing the ice hysterically in front of the stone like he was Mosses parting the Red Sea. The object of this sport and I use that term very loosely, is that you need to get the stone as close to the center of the circle (house) as possible. It's kinda like shuffle board now that I think of it. I did a little research because I didn't have a clue about this and found out it originated in Scotland. Ok...I confess, I was looking up a team member on the German Team There is a guy on there that is very handsome and I have a thing for Germans. Anyways, if you have a minute check it out. You know..I also have this attraction to Bocce Ball too! Hmmm...I like Italians too....I'm just sayin'
