Just a sudden thought…

I’m heading for my weekly trip to town and actually kind of in a hurry, but I was struck with a sudden thought…

Imagine: You’re a Korean factory worker, trying to figure out what the hell a curling team is really doing.

Yeah, I know it’s basically ice shuffleboard. But it always looked silly to me and I’m from the one place in America where you get to Canada by going south. Transplant it to Korea, and I can imagine things getting surreal in a hurry.

That is all, gotta run.

    That’s OK Joel, I’m Canadian and I don’t understand curling even though i was forced to play it way back in high school. You can tell it was invented by the Scottish. Wearing skirts… er kilts and sweeping go hand in hand.

    Mike, have you ever attended a Scottish Highland games? They have all sorts of very unusual sports. Picking up and tossing telephone poles… after a while, you forget about the kilts and just shake your head in wonder. As in, I wonder why anyone would want to do that!! LOL

    But I understand how these things come about. Most likely people develop games that go with their climate and what’s available. I suspect the Scots have LOTS of rocks, and plenty of ice at times. Seems logical to me. And I love to see a man in a kilt. Very sexy.

    What I don’t understand is golf. 🙂

    I don’t understand Koreans either. Or a lot of other things.

    Hi ML,

    Actually I have been too the highland games in Montreal Quebec and in Fergus Ontario. Great people with a wonderful sense of fun. As for golf, I’ve been playing the royal and ancient game for around forty years and I still don’t really have an understanding so don’t feel bad. here is the best explanation of the game I’ve ever seen. FYI the language is a little colorful so be warned.

    Ah, Robin Williams when he was funny.

    Getting into tearjerker movies was the worst move he ever made. After my wife dragged me to Dead Poet Society and (gods help me) Patch Adams I couldn’t stand the sound of his voice, but I loved him when he was still into standup.

    Too true about DPS. Advertised like it was a comedy, and it definitely wasn’t. Bleh.

    Four of the six curling team members are from our local curling club. Team Motto: Throwing rocks at houses at the state capitol since 1921. No, I don’t get the sport, either.

To the stake with the heretic!
