    Are they really Athletes in the Winter Olympics

    I'm watching the Olympics and am thinking I can be a Curler.  I know it is a sport, ipso facto it's in the Olympics so it must be a sport, but do you think the players are true athletes?  I don't see too many 6-packs.  What am I missing? How is this any different really than horseshoes? or Botchiball?  Maybe it's some kind of strategy thing?

    Re: Olympics

    Pete Sheperd the goof who used to be on EEI was dissing Curling after the Turino games.  A local curling crew offered to let him try it.  Not too shockingly Pete the Meat came out looking like an idiot. 

    Apparently it's much harder than it looks.  I gather there's plenty of strategy too it.
