Not a fan of curling but I’ve watched some of it on every winter Olympic.
Anyway I’m watching this today and realized for the very first time that these guys are not wearing skates but some specialized shoes for this sport.

The Russian team needed drugs to be better at curling?

I need drugs just to watch curling...

Thank you, roadfix, for the heads up. I was able to catch the OT period and shootout.

WOOHOO!

The US team deserved the win. Canada has stroger skaters, but we played better as a team. Better communication on the ice.

Whoever made curling into Olympic sport was on drugs.
