Another early morning today, this time, waking up for Men's Curling at The Vancouver Olympic Center. The crowd, while still buzzing, was more of a quiet hum in comparison to fans on Sunday. Obviously, Curling caters to a different crowd. There were lots of families and people to talk to however.
One interesting story came from a couple from Minnesota, Tom and Robin. For them, curling is a family event that spans generations. In fact, Tom once curled with the father of a man currently on the US National Team. Tom and Robin's children were back home, attending school in Minnesota, and, of course, curling.
Apparently, Tom and Robin aren't the only two turning curling into a family event. We also spoke with Kristen and Rachel about the importance of experiencing sport together.
