It’s not correct to say that curling is a non-event;
that compared to bowling it lacks minimal content.
Also it is unfair to imply that such a sport
is only an excuse to belly up and have a snort.
It takes a certain skill set to slide granite over ice.
It’s not like playing Bingo or the toss of brittle dice.
A bonspiel is a meeting of the minds, as well as brawn.
(At least there are no cheerleaders decked out in pink chiffon!)
In Minnesota, where the frost of winter seems eternal,
curling is a warming way to share a chill fraternal.
So do not call it ‘fremmed’ in a tone that’s undiscerning;
it sure as heck makes better sport than going out and gurning!
