VANCOUVER – As teams and officials struggle to escape snowed-in Chilliwack, TCN is warm and snug at a hotel minutes from the airport, and bound shortly for the Centre of the Universe.
It was the European curling universe which delivered a sound thrashing to Team North America at the Continental Cup, clearly viewable on CBC the final two days and, of course, on CurlTV every day, every draw since last Thursday.
For a quick study of the themes of the event, scroll down to the previous post and check out a barrage of exchanges between TCN and TCS (The Curling Show), which you can find under “COMMENTS”.
You’d be wise to also check out the upcoming December issue of TCN, which will feature a report and op-ed from ace columnist Larry Wood. Why not subscribe today? You can only read it in the hard copy of The Curling News.
Line of the day: from WCF past president Roy Sinclair of Scotland, as quoted by Paul Wiecek in today’s Winnipeg Free Press:
A guy slides down a hill on his back, and they call that luge. But if he slides down on his belly, well, that’s skeleton. If those are two separate sports, then don’t tell me mixed doubles curling isn’t a sport.
The IOC will be voting on whether to include Mixed Doubles, which played to strong reviews in Chilliwack, at the end of the month.
Stay tuned …
