Americans are re-discovering curling at the Olympics and it's hilarious
Here in Canada, it’s difficult to think of a world where curling isn’t a normal thing you see on TV but that’s reality for millions of people in the United States. With that in mind, BuzzFeed has compiled some of the most hilarious tweets from viewers who have fallen in love with curling this week. Here are 10 of them (see full list at the link):
Did not see my mixed curling obsession coming.
Olympic curling appears like an old spirit friend. I watch. I listen. Spellbound. An hour passes. And I have no idea what just happened.
OK, curling. You win. I don’t understand you and it seems I never will.
Is curling just Swiffer-ing on ice?
Every four years I have a passionate affinity for curling.
I have fallen victim to the hype. I watched curling, and by gosh… I liked it. I need counseling.
Curling has to be one of the most soothing sports I have ever seen.
Why haven’t they tried curling on the luge track yet?
They should combine curling and figure skating. Try to knock your opponent over by sliding stones on the ice during their routine. Did I just fix the Olympics?
The Olympics are good because people say things like, “He used to be the bad boy of curling,” and they’re being totally serious.
