Curling, eh?

14

RACINE — To the novice, curling may seem to be a strange cross between bowling and household chores. Do not be fooled.

Curling is that game where players run around on the ice and sweep in front of their teammates’ sliding stone. The goal is to have yours closest to the center of the target.

The Wisconsin Badgers season is all but over, and it has been fun to follow the progress of Kenosha’s own Melvin Gordon.

While his number, 25, has remained the same since his high school career, it has been amazing to watch him grow and see his commitment to the sport.
