I Share Because I Care

“It’s not just a rock. It’s forty-two pounds of polished granite, with a beveled underbelly and a handle a human being can hold. Okay, so in and of itself it looks like it has no practical purpose, but it’s a repository of possibility. And, when it’s handled just right, it exacts a kind of poetry - as close to poetry as I ever want to get. The way it moves…. Not once, in everything I’ve done, have I ever felt the same wonder and humanity as when I’m playing the game of curling.”

Oh I’m just pulling your chain! We yanks can’t resist ribbing our northern brothers.
