Not so sporty spice

Although I am not a huge sports fan, curling is one sport that I could watch for hours. This weekend I got to watch my dad curl in the annual mens bonspiel. I love it. I could literally spend all day at the rink watching. It makes me sad and disappointed that my brother Randy doesn't curl anymore, cause he was good. Plus it was another person to watch.
Last year, my family had the chance to go Grand Forks for a curling game. It was such a great game, and fun to watch a different caliber of curlers. I'm looking forward to the scott tournament of hearts. I don't usually watch too many games, but when I can, I steal a few minutes/hours.
I, however, hate the other ice sport. You know which one. Hockey. Seriously can't stand the sport. I can't even describe to you how much i hate it. It makes me mad when it consumes peoples lives. When you have company over, turn off the t.v. When plans come up, skip a hockey game. Hockey fans are among the most loyal and it makes me mad. Get a life.

Sounds like a good weekend...I prefer hockey but we aren't loyal fans and WILL turn it off when company is over. lol.

There's something so vintage about the smells of a curling rink. I love it. The view however, of the many butt cracks I could do without! ;)

Ready to hear a secret?? I've never ever watched a hockey game. Ever. In real life or on TV. How bad is that??

I've gotta agree, curling is my most favourite sport to play and watch on TV, I am totally looking forward to the Scotts.
