I Can Do That: Curling with Duluth native, former US Olympian Chris Plys

Posted: Updated:

"I can do that."

It's something probably every sports fan has said at one time or another, but how often is it actually true? Like most things in life, sports are almost always harder than they seem, and most fans are accustomed to watching the highest level of play possible.

That means the athletes are good --- really good --- and what they're doing isn't easy. 

KBJR6 Sports is out to prove it. 

The first Tuesday of every month, sports director Zach Schneider will try his hand at a new sport with some of the area's best athletes and teams. He plans to examine these words and report back, expecting of course to find that it is indeed harder than it looks.


This second installment comes at the Duluth Curling Club with Duluth, Minn. native and 2010 United States Olympian Chris Plys. Click on the video link for the story, which includes Zach going shot-for-shot with the 2018 Olympic hopeful.


If you have suggestions for what Zach should try next, please email zschneider@kbjr6.com or contact him on Twitter at @zschneiderkbjr. He's open to trying whatever, even if, in reality, he can't do that.
