Thank God it's the Winter Olympics again. Now curling can retake its rightful place at the forefront of the consciousness of international sports viewers. Again you can talk openly with your co-workers around the water cooler about the ailsite rocks, made of rare Scottish granite by Kays of Scotland for the Games. And you'll banter about the ever elusive Eight-Ender, cheer for your favorite skip, and generally revel in the best ice sport ever invented in medieval Scotland.
