wasting dedicating some time to watch the storied art of curling, I thought I would catch a glimpse of what qualifies it as an Olympic sport.
So when curling was followed by the U.S.-Switzerland hockey game, I came up with a brilliant idea. Here goes: If one side of the spectrum has rock sliding in the Olympics, and the other has bone-crunching hockey, then we need something in between. We need table hockey in the Games.
Think about it. What do you think takes more athletic ability -- gliding a stone across ice in a game of frozen shuffleboard, or the eye-hand coordination, reflexes and skill necessary to pass from your left wing, past a defender, to your center and then score on a goalie all in one fluid motion?
To the esteemed members of the IOC, don't consider this a plea so much as an educated demand. Hey, if you have the "stones" to keep curling around, you could at least give the fastest game on plastic a chance.
