Can we talk about the most amazing sport for a second?

Curling!

How can you not love it? I’ve been to two Olympic hockey games so far and I think the curling fans might just be more fanatical.

Heck, they were cheering and stomping so hard in the stands, I could barely take an in-focus photo.

Plus, you’ve got to respect a sport where the athletes wear duds like these (“Do you think they get new outfits for every show,” asked Canada’s superfan, Sonja.)

Thank you, Olympics, for introducing me to my new favourite spectator sport.

Have you seen curling live? Did you have as much fun as I did?

    Yes and yes.

    A cheer broke out at one point, started by one guy yelling “HEY, NORWAY:” and then, and we all joined in, “We – like – your pants! We – like – your pants!” The Norwegian dude raised his broom in acknowledgement, too.

    The only way it could have been better is if beers weren’t $7, so we could have had more than one each.

    Totally agree… I actually have more fun watching curling than hockey, even though I am a HUGE hockey fan…

    The pants are awesome. I got to see them when they switched to the red variation.. (I took some pics too!)

    Hope you’re enjoying the Olympics so far :)
