Curling tips If you don’t watch curling, then you’re making a huge mistake, because curling is the best sport ever invented. No, really. Curling is simple to learn, yet intricate. It takes very little athleticism except a deft touch, strong vocal cords, and maid-like sweeping ability. It’s incredibly easy to imagine yourself being the best curler in the world while simultaneously marveling at a perfectly executed raise takeout. Most of all, there is little need for officials or umpires of any kind, a glorious and welcome respite from basically every other major sport.
