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...

CURLING HISTORY:
...
by David B SmithOn a recent surf of the internet seeking items of curling interest I was quite surprised to see in a Swiss auction house's catalogue a modest sculptured relief of a modern curling scene. The relief was said to be made of 'Englischzement' and it was signed by the sculptor Rolf Brem. It did not take long to ascertain that the piece had been modelled by one of Switzerland's most famous, popular, and prolific sculptors, whose long life had centred on the Swiss city of Lucerne. He had died in 2014. There was lots of material by him on display on the net but as far as my researches went this was the only depiction of curling. I therefore resorted to my old and faithful friend, Max Triet, who was until his retirement director of the Swiss Sport Museum in Basel,...

COACH BILL:
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...
