Matt Wozniak of Team McEwen.
It's easy to forget that Team McEwen has been together for eight years. But after a rocky start all those years ago, this team just kept improving and now ranks as one of the very best in the game. I spoke to second Matt Wozniak about the journey and how the team is working to keep things fresh for another run. Want to hear more from Team McEwen? Here are links to past interviews with Mike, including one from 2008 when I called his team young. Lead man Denni Neufeld has also been on the show in the past. Third BJ Neufeld, however, has been elusive. Perhaps it stems from his cat-like delivery.
Morris announces curling sabbatical...
No Mo Johnny... unless... John Morris has spoken. The finalist from both the Brier and the Canadian Olympic Trials has issued a statement today on his immediate curling future, and here it is: This ad appears in our April issue After a lot of thought and deliberation, I have decided to take a step back from the game of curling next year. I had the tremendous pleasure of playing with three great, genuine teammates in Jim Cotter, Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky as we made it farther than I think anyone would have predicted for a team playing its first year together. You were all amazing, as was our coach, Pat Ryan, and our alternates Jody Epp and Jason Gunnlaugson. I am extremely proud of our squad for what we accomplished, and would like to thank my guys for helping me recover my passion and...
Stones of Destiny!
It is 1972 and we are deep into the final of the World Championship in Garmish-Partenkirchen.;nbsp; Orest Meleschuk knows that he has to hit and stick within the eight-foot on tricky, heavy ice to score two and take the game into an extra end.;nbsp; His opponents were team USA, skipped by Bob LaBonte.;nbsp; Their round-robin records were Canada 7-0 and USA 4-3.;nbsp; Never was there such a mismatch, yet here we were - it all depended on the big fellow's last stone. Cigarette dangling from his lips, he threw his fateful stone; the sweepers give it an early bang with their corn brooms, but the stone suddenly sits back and they are called off quickly; contact is made, but the shooter rolls slowly out towards the eight-foot; and further out; and further out - helped on its way by some furious...
Book reviewed by David B SmithOne of the most remarkable - and least publicised - 'by-products' of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow this summer was the publication by Historic Scotland of the book, Scotland's Sporting Buildings, by Nick Haynes.The purpose of the book is 'to celebrate the divers range and outstanding quality of historic purpose-built sporting architecture that exists across the country'.The book is not long at 108 pages, but it is crammed full of illustrations in colour and black and white. Its format is a general introduction on Scotland's sporting history followed by shorter sections on each of a list of sporting activities beginning with archery and ending with tennis, racquets, and squash.The place of Scotland's two 'national games',...
Curling treasures
A few curling treasures discovered recently on the bookshelf in the parlour of my cousin's old farmhouse in Nova Scotia: Looking for instruction, anyone? I want one of those sweaters. Just saying. It's all about the draw, says Mr. Weyman.  And inwicks, outwicks, chaps and chips, of course. I love this so much, I don't even know what to say about it!!

Here's a nice Globe and Mail story by Adam Stanley on the Goldline equipment company which is quickly approaching its 50th anniversary. As the story reveals, however, there was a period when the future of the broom and shoe maker was seriously in doubt.In the early 1980s, Canada was going through a financial struggle not seen since the Great Depression.;nbsp;Goldline Curling, a family-owned business, was running into the same issues that many small businesses were having: It couldn't secure funding to remain afloat and had an interest rate on its line of credit that was more than what most credit card rates are today.;nbsp;So Doug Flowers, now 65, and his brother did everything they could to keep the business going and look out for their father, whose house was on the line.;nbsp;"I...
What Are You Thinking?
The golf of world was treated to a wonderful performance at the recent "British Open Championship" played at Royal Liverpool G;amp;CC at Hoylake. The wire-to-wire winner was Northern Ireland's 25 year old Rory McIlroy who established, what turned out to be, an insurmountable six shot lead going into the fourth and final round at the the links course, about 15 km. from that cavern in downtown Liverpool were four floppy haired lads turned the popular music world upside down in the 1960's. Although he was challenged by Spain's Sergio Carcia who climbed to within two shots at one point in the final round, the result was really never in doubt. It was, to say the least, a remarkable performance! It puts him a Masters "green jacket" away from the career "Grand...
