Why Does Curling Get So Little Respect?

As readers of this blog know, we have had many links to us, but a few were more of the "Isn't this funny?" or "Isn't this quaint?" type of link rather than, "Hey, about time!" Here is further evidence that curling gets very little respect.

Go to That's right, the Canadian site for e-bay. Then, down along the left side, click on "Sporting Goods" to see all the categories listed (it looks as if there must be a couple of hundred.

Now click on "Curling".

What's that? Can't find it? Neither could I.

Maybe we can find "Curling" if we click on "Show all Sporting Goods Categories". There are maybe a thousand sub-categories there.

Nope. Not there, either.

However, if you type "curling" in the overall search, you get nearly a thousand hits. Unfortunately, most of them are for curling irons and what-not, but there are more than just a few curling pins and books.

I sure am glad Rodney Dangerfield never made a movie about curling...
