...Curling will be televised
The focus, the concentration, the grace, the the coefficient of kinetic friction - it's enough to entertain a baseball fan in December. After the resounding US win over the Sweeds (7-3) in the Korbel Elite Curling Challenge, there came a thunderous roar of bemusement from the New York crowd. The home field advantage may indeed have helped win the day.
This televised curling event opened my eyes to the true glory of digital HD television. In a few years, everyone will be able to follow their favorite sport - from curling to water polo (unless PETA gets in the way of that one - it's so cruel on the horses.) All in crispy, crunchy high definition.
