Look Out For Curling

My story on curling in Connecticut runs in tomorrow's Register. I am not going to give too much away, but let's just say my friends and I had a great time playing the sport.

I was going to write the story as a first-person narrative, but there's just too much info needed when you're writing about something like curling, something that not everyone's familiar with. So I still wrote in the first person, but there's a lot of good info in there and the piece is not all about me. I hate when things aren't all about me.

Anyway, as a tease to the story, here's my friend Harris McCabe getting ready to throw the stone. I'm not sure 6'8' people are meant to curl. We had a great time though.

I like watching curling. I got into it at the last olympics. The team from Bridgeport came to the Sound Tigers game the other night to demonstrate with a few fans during the intermission. I've never actually seen curling in person, so it was fun to watch.
