(Des Moines) If you've been watching the Olympics, you might see a sport that's referred to as the Rodney Dangerfield of sports: Curling.
In central Iowa, the President of the Des Moines Curling Club is local attorney Nate Boulton.
"We kind of live in obscurity as curlers for about three and a half years and then for about three weeks every four years we are suddenly the most popular kids in the room so it's a lot of fun."
It's also attracting royalty in Sochi, with Princess Anne of Britain and Prince Albert of Monaco spectators at the ice cube on Monday. Even so, Boulton says
"It looks kind of goofy and easy at the same time. People are just so unfamiliar with it. They just don't have any exposure to it in Iowa. The only time they see it is during the Olympics. It catches their interest during that time and then goes away, just out
of sight out of mind so we don't get a lot of respect."
