We Came, We Saw, We Curled Like Olympians (VIDEO)
"Well there's an Olympic sport I could do" said every single person who watched curling during the Olympics. The truth is, you could do a little curling; we all can! The question is, would you be any good at it? Chrissy, Jess and I decided to find out, and while it's really fun, it's a lot harder than it looks.
Donning my sweet yellow crested cardigan and special curling hat complete with fuzzy red ball on top and tassels, I ventured over to the Albany Curling Club with my radio cohorts to try my hand at this Olympic sport that looks so easy to do. Oh, I also wanted shout things like "hard, sweep, go, yeah, and make me a sandwich!"
Kirstie Fanning and the rest of the crew at the Albany Curling Club could not have been more accommodating, patient, or gracious as our Hog Line hosts. Yes, curling is a lot harder than it looks. It requires balance, lots of core and leg strength and good eye sight. And of course, a cool curling hat (with a fuzzy red ball and tassels) because if you can't do the sport very well, you gotta at least look the part!
