      Jen, my brother, and I love curling. We want to start playing it, actually. There's a curling center in Northbrook.

                My brother is nearly obsessed with it. The 4 of us could make a team.

                    I am not entertained. It just seems like shuffleboard on ice to me.

                    I'm so confused about how what determines what is a sport, and what is a game. This seems like a game.

                        Steve Gadlin is curling these days. Also one of Katie's friends is moving to Chicago, she was once invited to try out for team USA. She turned them down (she's Canadian)
                        They speak in bulletpointese leftist nutjob drivel. It doesn't matter. Nothing is as great a motivator as the chance to truly be free.

                          Mistake. I should have gone to try out for Greece when they asked. Who cares if I never had a shot at winning...it still would have been the event of a lifetime.

                            It's definitely a game, which is why I like it.

                              Now if you really want a challenge,

                              Take:



                              And combine it with:



                              And Presto:

                              Crokicurl (crokinole+curling) taking Canada by storm

                              Crokicurl, the sport-like game where crokinole and curling collide, is now being played in multiple cities across Canada.

                              The game has players competing using crokinole rules, but using curling stones in lieu of wooden discs and competing on a large scale playing surface made of ice. Players still need to aim for the 20 hole and hit competing players pieces, but now they will be doing this by hurling curling stones across a sheet of ice, with wooden posts blocking shots instead of pegs.

                              The hybrid game originated in Winnipeg in 2017 when a team of architects built the first crokicurl board at the iconic Forks river site.

                                Sports *are* games. Though if it's a judged sport, it's better to describe it as an "athletic entertainment event," like competitive ballroom dancing, or professional runway modeling.
