Chess on ice, with broomsticks
This curling stone belonged to 75-year-old curler Rudy Senich of Duluth, MN, who has been curling three nights a week for the last 35 years. Developed in Scotland and popular in the northern U.S., curling debuted as a medal sport at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Japan. According to Senich's curling club rulebook, "Curling is a game of skill and traditions... Curlers play to win, but never to humble their opponents. A true curler would prefer to lose, rather than to win unfairly!"
