Need Something To Do Sunday?

It isn't uncommon to toss around a football in the cul-de-sac during halftime, but it's slightly more difficult to casually participate in Olympic sporting events—you don't see folks rushing to the backyard pool for a little synchronized swimming during commercial breaks.

There are some opportunities to get in on the action, though. The Winter Olympics are approaching, and If you have some ice, a broom and a stone you can curl. But first, you need to know how. Join the Boise Curling Club at Idaho IceWorld to learn the essentials of the sport. Materials will be provided, but wear loose fitting pants and a jacket. Who knows? Maybe your window to be an Olympian hasn't closed yet...

6:30 p.m. $20. Idaho IceWorld, 7072 S. Eisenman Rd., Boise, boisecurlingclub.com.
