During the Winter Olympics in 2010, I was finally exposed to the rules of curling. I had known about the sport before from the movie “Help!” by The Beatles. (Here’s the clip).
Of course that clip taught me absolutely nothing about the sport. So when the Olympics came around, I was determined to learn about the rules of the game. After only watching a couple matches, I already got hooked.
The idea of the game is pretty simple. The team with the stones closest to the center of the target get points for the round. And at the end of the game, the team with the most points win.
