Intro to Curling, Hollywood Style

Here's a nice little documentary filmed with the Hollywood Curling Club that serves as a brief introduction to the sport...

Hollywood Curling from Ben Maizell on Vimeo.

Gotta say, it has me a little freaked about the bonspiel I'm curling in this fall over in Wenatchee, which will be my first time curling on arena ice. The arena looks so... open... And there are no physical dividers between the sheets. And I still haven't figured out where people put their water bottles... Surely people without dedicated ice don't just not hydrate? I've never gotten through a game without wanting water...

But on a different note, here's an amusing old clip from the last Olympics proving that curling isn't as easy as it looks. :)
