One of the all-time greats is Russ Howard, who skipped Team Canada Men's in 2006 and is helping with the commentary on CTV:


His autobiography is "Hurry Hard". He has not bellowed during the coverage...yet.
And, USA Men's was eliminated from medal contention yesterday.

Wow. Just found this thread. Last time I started a curling thread not one person responded. Glad it has some spectators during the Olympics at least. As much as I hate Kevin Martin he is probably the best in the world.

To truly appreciate curling, you have to play it.

Plus, you get together with your opponent and get completely wasted after the game.

Anyways, Canada going for double-gold. Pretty confident that Kevin Martin can pull it off, but I'm not so sure about the ladies.

Go Kevin!!! Beat the Pants off Norway!

Money on the board!  Current total: $7

$1 for each goal scored by a current Wing after whom I've named a hamster.  +$5 if one scores a hat trick.

+$1 if a GWG.  +$5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.+$50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James
