The End of the End

Well, here it is. This is the final week of Curling for me. We’re in the playdowns, Curling speak for playoffs, and we’re sitting pretty well. We did well enough throughout the regular season to be one of four teams to get a bye through the first round. We play in the second round tonight and we’ll have to win our next three games to get to the finals.

Unfortunately we have the luck of playing against Dave Brown. Dave is coming off of a very recent victory at the U.S. Club National Championships.
It’s been kinda cool to see how many National level teams have come out of Madison. Surprising too actually. Both the men’s and women’s National Championships went to teams out of Madison. Also the Boy’s and Girl’s Junior National Champs had team members from Madison. The Boy’s team also won the Junior World Championships. Then there is the Men’s Senior team that got 3rd at Nationals.
It’s a different world for me coming from the climbing side of life where all of the talent is seemingly in either Colorado or Europe somewhere. I love the fact that I don’t grasp the level of talent that I’m playing with. It’s fun to be oblivious sometimes.
