I didn't know what to title this......so I went children's book title on things. I gotta say, after a single one hour session of curling, I think I'm hooked. I reserve the right to become NOT hooked though if I quickly hit a curling ability plateau and just can't get any better.
Yes, Addy's shot, that nearly dead center was completely legit. Absolutely no C.G.I. involved in making that shot so perfect. And, yes, embarrassingly my fall was completely legit too.
I think Mr. Miyagi would've been a great curling instructor, teacher, coach. He was very much a proponent of balance and I think that's largely what curling is all about. You gots to learn great balance in that rock shooting push off position thingy. All in all, I had a blast and forsee a lot of practice before summer, then assembling an all-star squad for a winter league.
In case you were curious, we were out at the Frogtown Curling Club in St. Paul.
