The 8 best tweets about curlingNorway's vice Torger Nergaard delivers a stone as lead, Haavard Vad Petersson, and second, Christoffer Svae, sweep during their men's curling round robin game against Sweden, February 13, 2014. (Credit: Reuters/Ints Kalnins)

I’m sitting here amid an East Coast snowstorm watching Norway versus Sweden in the men’s curling competition, and I can’t imagine a more Winter Olympics-appropriate scenario. As the score reached 1-1 — I have no idea how that happened — it occurred to me that I can’t possibly be the only person that finds this sport equal parts intriguing, confounding and amusing. I took to Twitter for confirmation and, sure enough, the comments were flying faster than rocks thrown. (I think that’s the proper terminology. I’ve only been watching this game for 34 minutes.)

Here are my favorite curling tweets this morning in no particular order.
