Looking For A Fun Way To Cool Off? Try Curling
“Sweet Spot,” by Mike Sugerman
OYSTER BAY, N.Y. (WCBS 880) – When the weather is hot outside, come inside.
Grab a broom. We’re going to sweep.
We’re going curling.
You’ve seen the sport if you’ve ever watched the Olympics. That’s how Bobby Iadanza got into it.
“My dad’s a contractor,” he said. “When I told him about curling, he said, ‘it’s a perfect sport for you, because no one is better with a broom than you.’”
All curlers know, it looks kind of goofy. And it’s hard to explain.
“I have curly hair. So when I tell people I’m a curler, they say, ‘but you already have curly hair,’” said Dafna Stemple. “Or they think it’s weight curling. But I tell them it’s like shuffleboard on ice, with physics.”
Physics. Well yeah – that’s a cold, hard fact.
