    Love the links to the articles on curling in the United States. For once, there’s a writer who wrote about how challenging the game is to play. Some people worry that will discourage new curlers — I think anything we can do to make people realize the sport is an athletic pursuit is in the best interests of curling. I nearly puke every time I hear someone say, “…sounds just like shuffleboard.”

    I’m looking forward to the return of curling TV coverage, and in particular the first Slam to be held in Cape Breton, the first weekend in November. It can only help to give curling’s popularity a boost down east to have a few of these events in their communities.

    blf: Agreed it is tough to hear such comparisons, “chess on ice” is one that irks me, true as it may be to some. But more and more stories are similar to the “challenging” one you point to, and I expect more like that in future.
    And there will be puff pieces, nearly all of them originating in the States, and we have to expect that. It was only five or six years ago that the last Canadian media mind ripped curling… and we northerners haven’t heard a similar word since. It will take a while to get to that level down south.
