I’m not a huge curling fan (especially compared to some librarians that I know!)  But since the World Men’s Curling Championships are in Regina this week and because someone at work hooked me up with four tickets for Sunday night’s draw so I could take Shea as well as my parents, I’ve been following it a lot more closely – including plunking down in front of the TV for three hours tonight to watch a huge game.

Tonight was a match-up of two undefeated teams (and a possible preview of next Sunday’s gold medal game?) with Canada’s Jeff Stoughton taking on Scotland’s Tom Brewster.  Canada prevailed to stay undefeated in round-robin play.

In honour of the victory, I thought I’d post a clip of the trick shot Stoughton occasionally does, even in real games on occasion.  Along with the retro corn broom he uses when throwing his stones, this is a guy who knows how to market his sport!

    “I’m not a huge curling fan”, “I live in Saskatchewan”. Come on, which one is true.

    Okay, how about “I am not as huge of a curling fan as many of my fellow Saskatchewanianowians” who *really* love curling in a way that amazes even me who grew up in a small town, spent many hours of my life watching my parents play the sport and has played the game myself a little bit? (Useless trivia o’ the day: Apparently curling is the only sport that gets higher TV ratings than hockey in Canada!)
