Curling has been sort of a punchline in America for years on account of its name (and use of silly looking brooms), but really, we've had it all wrong. Jonny Diamond, our Editor-in-Chief and resident Canadian makes it seem pretty great: "The sound of a curling rink is like a bunch of giants mixing drinks." Which is appropriate, since curling revolves pretty heavily around drinking. So enticing, and so much lower key than hockey! Between that, the encouragement that players wear plaid (tartan, to be specific), and the low baseline skill level required to participate, this seems like a total shoo-in.
