6:24 pm
lesson in mass wrestling. i'm not sure i'm trod be completely humiliated in front of the crowd. not that i mind a little pain. but it is the months of recovery that worry me. i was going to do it. even with the wrestlers in the ring smelling fresh blood, i was going to climb the ropes and give them what-for. but then the ring announcer ignacio had second thoughts. >> oh, my god, hey, it is mike rowe, everybody. >> now with my true identity revealed, there is no way i can break years of lucha tradition by entering the ring, that would be impolite.

clearly, i'm devastated. >> next time i go in. i go in next time. >> time to retreat to the safety of the announcer's booth. where skills i actually possess can be put to the test. >> lucha! vavoom! >> that's good. >> now as i watch mag no's destruction at the hand of his opponents, it occurs to me that going into that ring would have quite possibly been the last thing i ever did. >> magno, my thighs.
6:26 pm
>> oneo, dose, tres. >> are there any losers in lucha. i don't want to put any words in his mouth, but yes. lucha libre is a hot mess, no doubt about it. but it is hard to forget the power of the mask. we all wear them, from the former wrestling champ turned unassuming taylor to the acrobat transformed into a gyrating tempt res to the jewish girl from queens who is honoring a time hoppered mexican tradition and who like your host who will set aside common sense and good judgment to slip into whatever the job calls for. >> okay. so to sum up, this is your life? >> yes. >> and you love it? >> i love it. >> was it a good show? >> yeah. yeah, i really loved it. it was a great match, though.
6:27 pm
i saw some stuff i've never seen. that is the thing about this show. >> i saw this things. >> maybe there were some firsts for you tonight. >> i saw some things. i don't know where i put my pants. >> i haven't seen your pants. so the crew and i were driving through a chilly madison, wisconsin, wondering what one might do for fun in the cold months up here. and then we see a sign. why not? why not, indeed. when you've stumbled upon what turns out to be the country's largest curling supply store. >> mike. >> greg. >> a place run by the first firm of this support. while curling is a popular winter pass time for the neighbors up north, it didn't come the olympic sport we love until 1998. i'm hoping i can learn the weird
6:28 pm
ways and learn how challenging it might be. there are no better trainers than these guys. steve brown is an olympic coach and to some, craig, a competitor. >> everything someone could want to know about curling, i assume, is logged away up there in your combined father-son brain. >> absolutely. this is what we've done all of our life. in one hour we'll teach you how to play the sport and that is impossible but we'll try. and then we'll have a little game. i have some of my paraolympics athletes coming down and then you'll see some of it in my son craig. >> you have me whipped in a frenzy. so let's get the clothes i need. >> you have the slider and the gripper. that is the sliding motion. and this is the gripper. that makes it so you don't fall on your butt constantly. >> who invented curling? >> the scottish. >> the scots.

>> they did that in the frozen ponds in the lochs many centuries ago. >> you can't golf. >> that is slick. and wait until you get on the ice. >> there is a difference between te terms. >> no. >> those are pretty warm. >> form fitting. >> accentuate the positive. >> exactly. >> so now i'm all suited up. guess there is only one thing left to do. to the ice. >> to the ice. >> to the ice. it recognizes pedestrians and alerts you. warns you about incoming cross-traffic. cameras and radar detect dangers you don't. and it can even stop by itself. so in this crash test, one thing's missing: a crash. the 2015 e-class.

up in wintry wis wis, professional curlers are about to team me about this scottish-born sport. as we approach the curling club, i can hear the cries of scotts battling it out on the ice. but it turns out it is wisconsin-its but still just as charging. it makes you want to take out your broom and challenge the ice. >> shall we. >> this is going to be slippery. >> uh-huh. >> so what you want to do is take a step and kind of slide.
6:34 pm
step and slide. >> that is no different than an ice skate. >> it really isn't. >> no. >> oh, yeah, i'm going down like a cheap card table. >> put my rubbers back on. >> these are hacks. kind of like a starter block in track. so he's putting the ball of his foot right there and he's using his brush for a balance point and then i'm just going to push out. smooth as silk and it looks so easy, right? >> it really does. >> it's not, is it? >> let 'er go. >> one, two, three, four, and he's down. >> let 'er go. >> back on your feet, man. >> it is so humble, man. it is hard to look good down here, unless you are really
6:35 pm
sexing it up. >> you are trying to get your stones closer to the center than the other team. >> all of them? >> as many as you can. >> so it is bochy on ice. the shooter releases the stone before he slides past the first line and players put english on the loan before it curls down the lane hence the name curling but the stone has to travel past the far black line. so right now yellow would have three. but if the red team came down with one shot, all of a sudden, even though there are two yellow ones in there, the red is closer to the center. so it is how many of your color are closer to the center than the other team. >> curling stones all come from the isle of elsa craig, just off the coast of scotland. this is the only granite they can find in the entire world that has the right [ inaudible ] so it won't break.
6:36 pm
>> the right what? >> the right velocity. they are quite expensive. stones they use in the olympic are about $700 apiece but the good is they last forever and offer. >> and now that i know the rock and keep score, i want to know why people are frantically trying to clean the ice in front of the rock as it slides down the lane. >> the speed is determined by the sweepers. they judge comparing speed and line to make sure it stops in the right spot. >> why does it work? physically, what is happening? >> you are just warming up the ice. the change in temperature helps make the rock go farther and straighter. >> so basically, try to run while sweeping. >> yeah, there you go. >> all right. >> you are going to have to go faster. >> there you go. you got it down. >> piece of cake. >> man, i've been sweeping all
6:37 pm
my life. >> i want to hear about how in the world this became your whole life. >> i can't say i grew up with the sport accidentally, but i was in the town of a thousand people and if i took three steps from my backyard, i could reach out and open the door to a three-sheet curling club. basically we would sneak into the curling club and get into trouble with the ice maker. but we didn't care. we are having fun. and my parents would say did you do anything wrong and we said no and they said you can sneak in again tomorrow. i was like 6 or 7 years old and we were in there on a daily basis. >> it has spread to the whole family. not only his son but his daughter moved to canada because she loved the sport so much. and he coached the u.s. pa paralympic team. >> when is the first time you picked up a curling stone, do
6:38 pm
you remember? >> it was in '08, in summer. i'm a summer athlete. if golf was a paraolympics sport, i would get the gold every time. i can crush it. >> how long have you been in the chair? >> 24 years. >> what happened? >> i was in patrol in korea and we rolled and i crushed c-4, 5, 1 #. >> are they all custom? >> i can't help but notice, you have a flair going on. >> living the dream. you get to play every day. >> with all of the athletes around, i can feel the challenge in the air. i'm going to have to take a few more practice runs. >> let it go. it's going to go too far. >> really? >> whoa, that's good. >> there you go. >> there he goes. he's off, he's going to push it. not bad. >> holler at him a couple of
6:39 pm
times. tell him to sweep it. sweep that thing. >> harder. come on. >> oh, it's so close. he might make it. >> it's on. >> oh, it's on. >> obviously you have to work on going the right direction and throwing at the right speed but you have the basic fundamental down as far as getting from point a. to point b. >> and i didn't fall down. >> you spoke too soon. perfect timing. >> after an hour of training, i'm about as good as i'm going to get. so naturally, the next step is a match. >> this is my daughter andy. >> hey, andy. >> she's an outstanding young curler. >> what are you like 11? >> yeah. >> we're going to put you against craig, the olympic athlete, and we don't want you
