Winnipeg Got So Bored, They Thought Up A New Sport: Crokicurling

Submitted by: 5cats 1 month ago Sports


Good news! The intrepid (and very bored) people of Winnipeg have combined the Crokinole and curling into one fantastic sport: Crokicurling

Soon to be a Winter Olympic medal event! Eh?

The fact that this post is currently getting a negative rate says volumes about IAB's Liberals.
You are filled with hate, you have no voice except hate. Fuck you all. (Added: By 'you' I mean those who spread only hate and attacks. Not ALL of y'all! Most IAB Liberals are nice! Well, half anyhow...)

Oh, you say you didn't down-vote this and are not responsible? Think again. Your silence while those few spewed their lies and hate thousands of times is why this site is going to shit. 
Has gone, past tense.
Everything you once liked about IAB is going fast, oops! Now it is gone. It cannot be brought back.

IAB is dead. The uber-liberla tolls and all of their hate has poisoned it beyond saving. 
It was a nice ride, but it's over now. 

Hate and evil has won the day! Liberalism and leftism is the only thing allowed (added: in the comments) here now. True but sad eh>?
And we all know who the specific people who deliberately caused this are, no need to name them. Enjoy the fun when they turn on you and you are the target for their unrelenting hate. You have earned it.

5cats I didn't like the post.  I enjoy crokinole and curling, and watched the video when it first came out.  Your post was simply condescending.  Sorry.

punko Honestly? The 38 second video was "condescending" in your eyes? O_o

I'm here, in this city, and damn proud of my frozen fellows (that includes girls fyi) for this. You are mistaken if you think I meant anything even slightly negative. Curling is a real Olympic sport after years of hard fighting for it, we Canadians just love curling! And are damn good at it too, especially Manitobans!!

5cats No, the video was fine.  I had seen it earlier when it first came out.  I have played both, as I said.

Your post - your words beneath the video - were condescending.  Posting the video was good, the words beneath weren't.

"Soon to be a Winter Olympic medal event! Eh? "

plays on Canadian stereotypes and appears to call into question the hard fighting we did to get curling into the Winter Olympics.  I'd expect this from a lower-tier American comedian, rather than a Manitoban.

punko That's a WITTY remark based on how long it took curling to make it into the Olympics... sarcasm. I do know that's difficult to tell on the internet, eh? ;-)

Freaking 'trampoline' and 'beach volleyball' got in without delay, but a real, international sport like curling took decades? I know very well what a triumph of quality vs PC garbage the inclusion of curling is. And Manitoba is a curling powerhouse. We could send a team to the worlds and Olympics every year :-) Just us!
And women's curling, especially internationally, is terrific! Every bit as good as the men's, better even!

5cats It is more likely that this suffers from the same weakness as curling.  When you first hear about it (curling) it sounds super boring.  It wasn't until I spent a couple rounds "trapped" on a treadmill during the winter Olympics that I realized just how great Curling is.

edit: and there are a couple of people who -1 you for being you.  Don't blame it on them being liberals.  Blame it on them being assholes.  :P

muert Thanks Muert! 
I know it's only a handful of uber-hate filled assholes, but still it shows the diseased nature of the typical IAB Liberal here. The silence of the majority as these few do their daily evil? THAT is what the problem is...

Yes, Curling is a great sport!! At high levels of play it's just amazing. And yet? Anyone can go and play it, it's super-easy!! And a hell of a lot of fun! :-)

This new game is silly, yet I bet it catches on here, maybe in other Prairie Provinces too. It might seep down into North Dakota too, lolz!! It's FUN and that's what is important. People like it, it's a good thing!!

5cats You have to remember that the majority (maybe all) of the people who witness you in an argument with someone don't know the complete history.  They don't come in and see one person standing up for their rights and their voice against an oppressor.  They see two assholes being assholes to each other, and are thankful that the assholes are not aimed at them. Then if for some reason they decide to take sides, they'll choose that asshole that is most closely aligned with their own beliefs.  Which given the largely liberal population of this site means they will go against you.

 The only way you can win popular opinion is to /never/ be an asshole, no matter how provoked.  (Which I know is really hard because sometime being an asshole just feels good.)  Then more people will perceive you as you perceive yourself, the one voice trying to bring light into the darkness.  Or more likely, the one guy who disagrees with us on most things, but who is nice to talk to anyway. (Which is how I think of you when you aren't accusing me directly or indirectly of being an indoctrinated liberal with my head so far up my ass my hair is tickling my tonsils.  :P)

muert I've tried for years to be nice, it has gotten me exactly nowhere.
From stalkers to hate-mongers to Mods who delete my submissions because I made them and for no other reason? I've endured it all.
My plan is to out-wait the weak and limp IAB liberal-leftists and dance on their graves.
If one or two actually see something that shakes their blindness off, even for a moment? That's a bonus. It's not my job to "make them see" but I will defend myself from their lies and attacks.
But thanks for your kind words! Good luck out there in IAB Land!

Have no idea what Crokinole is, but always enjoy watching curling during the Olympics.

megrendel I did provide a linky :-)
For us Western Canadians? It's just so natural we forget others don't know about it. It's just a really fun game, and so is curling.

On PS3 there was this thing called playstation home, a digital world, where i owned a space that had this game.  It was called gnome curling, and each rock had its own behaviour, like it would explode or bounce or be immovable, etc. It was fun.  here's what it looked like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=20XJYf2DW0I

Nearly every basement recroom in Manitoba has an old crokinole board or table, right beside the slot-hockey game and Rummoli board. :-) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rummoli
