If I had my way, Sir David Attenborough would provide commentary for every Winter Olympics competition. After watching the hilarious clip below, you'll likely agree with me.
The 87-year-old British broadcaster and naturalist was recently asked by BBC Radio 1’s Greg James during an interview to describe the action of a curling match between Great Britain and the United States.
"The aim of this ritual is to land your walnut in the center of the nest," he says. "The frisking is frantic and often futile, making no difference to the net thrust, but it is playful and what makes this game the sliding curlers play so magical."
