If you are not familiar with curling, look at this video. It's shotmaking at it's best.
4 years ago, I was at the St. john's Curling Club for a Red and White party. The tradition is that when a club team makes it to a national championship final, the club is opened up to watch and cheer and hope for another national. Except 4 years ago, the red and white were national colours, and the prize was olympic gold.
Enter 2010 in Vancouver. Kevin Martin is our version of say, Nolan Ryan. Experience, and still able to get the job done.
The significance, this is gold number 13 for canada. tying the record from 1976 by the Soviet Union. That sets up the gold medal game tomorrow between Canada and USA in the ultimate winter sport, hockey.
If your free tomorrow night, watch the game. It will be awesome.
