Curling Has Roots in Scotland

Curling, a sport originating in Scotland

Curling, a sport originating in Scotland

I've heard that Adam Smith, also known as the father of economics, was born in Scotland. But I don't know much about Scotland. So I searched the Internet for information on Scotland.

The article that caught my eyes was "Curling." Curling is one of the Scottish sports. It has roots in Scotland like Golf. The sport is now played all over the world. It is a game played on ice, in which players slide heavy flat stones towards a mark.

It's called "Chess on Ice." I didn't know before that curling and golf have roots in Scotland.

I do realize that there are so many things that I've never heard. Every time I post here, I am sure I can find something new. (*^_^*)

How happy I am !!!!!!!! I wanna keep posting here.
