Dumbest Olympic sports?

I was watching the Curling competition earlier. WTH? One guy pushes a big granite puck while on skates, slowly I might add. These other two guys chase it down the ice with these two rake things and they try to steer the sliding puck by fervently scratching the ice just ahead of it. What's so skilled about that?

yeah, very stupid. But I do like the snowboardcross and the skeleton and luge. 85mph on a sled on your back is nuts

I have not watched much of anything yet. But to me it seems more like the X Games when I flip past channel 5.

that shit is called curling and it is by far one of the dumbest fucking things I've ever seen. I actually caught part of the womens earlier today. It takes 3 fucking people to do it, how is that talent on anyones behalf?
