Guess what's the least dangerous sport in the Winter Olympics?

Go ahead and guess (hint: it involves the use of live ammunition):

Strangely, the WaPo article somehow didn't mention to its readers that Biathlon involves the keeping and bearing of arms.  I'm sure that it was an innocent oversight.

Wait - curling has an injury rate? Is it from dropping the stone on your toes? Or is it beer-related?

Graybeard, curling is from Scotland, via Canada. Of course beer is involved.

And to think that no one went wild and shot into the crowd.

What? GUNS, and it's less dangerous than curling?

I'm aghast!


PS - Don't they use BROOMS in curling?

The part that fascinates me is that adding a rifle appears to make cross country skiing three times safer.
