I really know nothing about female curling, but I am sure you could easily make that argument.  She has won a ton of championships and has been successful for a long time.

I find curling super boring.  It?s not really even a sport.  Only time I ever watched was when Ron Burgundy showed up at MTS Centre.

So you're not a Jennifer Jones fan.....and also not a curling fan.

Personally, I'm not a Tom Brady fan, and I also don't like football.

I am not a big curling fan but really respect the game.  I've watched some Scotts and Briers before and was amazed at the strategy and planning that goes into every throw.

Sure but strategy and planning doesn?t automatically = sport. I put curling in the same category as golf, bowling and darts.

Well that's your opinion. It is by definition a sport. Not all of us like it but it is a sport. So nothing to really debate or argue here.

^ Agreed.

Have you tried curling? It looks really easy on TV but is actually much harder and can be quite strenuous in real life.

You ever notice how much alcohol is involved at the amatuer/local club levels of curling, golf, bowling, An darts.......it's crazy

I curled once in high school. It was super boring. Maybe the people sweeping get a little workout but the person tossing the rock gets none. I just don?t see it as a true sport. But I know it?s super popular here in Manitoba/Canada so I know my opinion won?t be popular.

Sport (British English) or sports (American English) includes all forms of competitive physical activity or games which through casual or organized participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing enjoyment to participants, and in some cases, entertainment for spectators.

When Jennifer Jones decides to walk away from the game she will go down as one of the most decorated skips in the sport of Curling.
