The curling community convenes in Geneva this week and Warren brings us up to speed on the mixed doubles worlds and senior worlds events. Team Tirinzoni’s Melanie Barbezat and Esther Neuenschwander are stepping back after the season and Kevin explains the impact they’ve had on the game as three-time reigning world champions. Kevin also gives a shoutout to Vegreville, Alberta, for hosting “Val Sweeting Day.”
Should teams be allowed to shake hands to concede early? The guys discuss in Hot Rock Topics as things have gotten murkier with betting implications now a concern.
Our Mailbag segment discusses the rules surrounding sweeping. Don’t forget if we answer your question, you will receive a free e-copy of Warren’s book, Sticks and Stones, documenting how curling became an Olympic sport.
Stick until the end of the show as Kevin shares a funny tale in Storytime involving Donny B, jet lag and heated toilet seats.
