Curling!  What is that?

Is this going to be a DIT about how to curl hair or give a permanent?

Well, no.

Curling is one of the many newer sports in the Olympic Games so you may have missed it.

While chatting recently with a DITer, this topic came up.

I had mentioned watching Curling

and the DITer was not aware of this sport.

So, we found this link to a brief video (unlike the lonnnnnng game itself)  which explains some of the rules of the sport.

Thinking you would also be interested, it is the DIT for today.

Alas, as is often the case, a commercial preceding the video begins, but, as usual, you can click it off after a few seconds.

So with that by way of introduction

HERE'S the link to Olympic Curling

And for more detailed information about the long history of this sport and facts about the curling stones, brooms, rules, etc. HERE'S THE LINK
