Colby Rasmus is from Alabama. He did not grow up around ice and snow. His off-season hobbies include hunting, fishing and mud-riding (riding trucks through mud, for the uninitiated). Winter sports aren’t really his thing.
So the Toronto Blue Jays centre-fielder can be forgiven for not being an expert on curling.
“It’s a crazy-looking game to us, you know what I’m saying?” Rasmus told the Saskatoon StarPhoenix. “All we’d play was football, baseball and basketball growing up. This game here is a little out there.”
Rasmus gave curling a try on Friday, and had a bit of trouble staying on his feet. He and teammates J.P. Arencibia, Drew Hutchison and Anthony Gose paid a visit to Saskatoon’s Granite Curling Club as part of the Jays’ Winter Tour, which is making stops across the country. The players were given lessons on the basics of the sport and curled with some young fans.
