not exactly down your alley? Fret not, as NBC has reportedly secured exclusive rights to launch ten episodes of "a proposed television show called Rockstar Curling
." No need to wipe the dust off your specs -- the network actually is eying certain celebs (Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen were named in particular) in hopes of rounding one up to get involved -- possibly as a host -- in the show. Apparently, the winning contestant could eventually end up with a berth in the US championships, and perhaps a shot in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver. As riveting as the idea of curling in and of itself is, here's to hoping this surefire blockbuster
eventually gets broadcast in high-def.
