DAN: Baby We Were Born to Curl
By Dan O'Donnell
Providing further (and on Wisconsin Sports Weekend, unneeded) evidence that curling is catching on with a wider audience, NBC has confirmed that it has an exclusive option on Rockstar Curling, a reality curling competition.
And since this isn't VH1, you won't be seeing washed-up rockers like Bret Michaels or Flavor Flav, The Toronto Star is reporting that NBC has "a plan to land closet curlers Bruce Springsteen or Jon Bon Jovi as part of the show, assuming the rockers aren't worried what being connected to a sport with brooms might do to their images."
In this humble rock 'n' curl fan's opinion, it could only enhance their images. Sissies trash hotel rooms. Real rock stars curl.
The Star says "according to sources, the two rock stars are among a group of entertainment types who rent arena time on occasion to pick up brooms instead of guitars. Organizers are trying to negotiate a deal to get one of them involved, possibly as a host."
Curl on, boys, curl on.
