Eh, winning I suppose...

The point is to score as many points as possible. The team that has the stone closest to the centre wins a point, if they have two stones closer than the other team they get two points and so on. There's a lot of tactics involved with the trying to shoot out the other teams stones, blocking each other from getting a lot of points and so on.

I think it's fun. I don't expect you guys to get it, I for example will never be interested in sports like: cricket, baseball, golf, rugby, american football or car racing.
I like soap bubbles.

Canada won a deserved gold in the curling. Just a little disappointing that the Norwegian team played their worst game of the tournament in the final. Silver is not bad for a bunch of amateurs though.


I have to say I'm glad it's the last day of the Olympics today, I feel like I have overdosed on ski sports.
