12. this was the first time i actually watched curling
...this Olympics that just passed. I went in with an open mind and an open beer and found that i rather enjoyed it (esp. the women's teams. there were a few pretty hot players sprinkled around the sport).

It takes skill and team work.

Based on your assertion "Curling does not involve any kind of physical strength", I'd like to assume you've tried to Curl... but we both know that would be a silly assumption.
