After an extraordinary run coaching Team Homan, Earle Morris thought he'd take a break. The good news for fans of the game? He changed his mind. I talked to Earle about his decision to take on the role of coaching his son's veteran lineup this coming season, the evolution of the sport and a whole lot more.

BOB WEEKS ON CURLING:
Niagara curling conference a big...
Curling's first big curling pow-wow down in Niagara Falls was, by all reports, a big success. Lots of chatting, presentations, awards and general discussion about the game went on and most left with good feelings about where things are headed. There were some interesting changes for the coming season, which were spelled out in the release that came from Ottawa today. Here are the highlights (from my humble point of view):* The qualifying rounds at the Canadian Seniors and Mixed Championships were eliminated and replaced by a similar 14-team direct-entry format that is currently used at the M;amp;M Meat Shops Canadian Junior Men's and Women's Championships, with the 14 teams split into two seven-team pools, and the top-four finishers from each pool advancing to the championship...

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...

2014 Baden Masters
Hallelujah, I got to watch curling online in August. Admittedly it didn't feel right with the A/C on at home.Thomas Ulsrud of Norway took home the championship in Baden. They went undefeated and have been unstoppable since dropping a heartbreaker in the Sochi playoff play-in. They didn't see much resistance in Baden, taking down Brewster and Drozdov easily, then edging Edin in the semis and surviving against the De Cruz rink.Sven Michel, who won this thing a few times in the past, made the semifinals and looked okay but they weren't even the best Swiss team there.Peter De Cruz's team looked terrific. In the quarterfinals they put up a six-ender (!) against Team Murdoch, and made short work of Edin. When I was watching, their fourth Benoit Schwarz made nice bailout shots, and one of the biggest...
MIKE THE CURLING GUY:
Dear Santa - Don't put me...
Dear Santa;Once again, I am writing to you with a set of wishes for Christmas for me and some of my fellow curlers. I realize that I was on the "naughty" list last year, which explains the autographed Wayne Middaugh shirt I found under the tree. Unfortunately I have not been able to find a good home for it on eBay yet, but I am still trying. I feel that I have been particularly nice this year; my broom slamming and throwing was limited to but a few thoroughly justifiable occasions (I think even Mrs. Claus would have whammed something if her draw had stopped an inch short of shot in an extra end); hardly enough to warrant inclusion on the infamous "naughty curler" list.So here are some gift suggestions:;nbsp;- For Mark Dacey; a postcard from Charlevoix - saying: Come Back...
