After a week off to catch up on sleep and health from our week in Kalamazoo, TESN's Price Atkinson and "The Godfather" Joe Calabrese look back on the amazing week bringing you the 2019 U.S. Curling Nationals from the Zoo.
We welcome in Granite Curling Club president Phil Shryock, as the GCC is hosting the 2019 U.S. Mixed Doubles Nationals in Seattle this week. He talked about the excitement within the Club, preparing to host the championship, reaction in the local Seattle area and more.
Plus Price and Joe recap a few of the latest events including the World Junior Championship and the wild finish last weekend at the Scotties in Nova Scotia. And good luck to Team USA who'll competing at the 2019 World Wheelchair Championship starting this weekend in Stirling, Scotland!
TESN's Joe Calabrese and Price Atkinson are at the 2019 USA Curling Nationals in Kalamazoo and the playoffs are now set on the men's and women's side. They break down all the action and Friday's playoff matchups from the Wings Event Center.
You'll also hear interviews with skips John Shuster, Todd Birr, Korey Dropkin, Jamie Sinclair, Cory Christensen and birthday girl Stephanie Senneker plus Becca Hamilton and Colin Hufman. We've got you covered with the latest from the U.S. Nationals!
Host Price Atkinson is back this week but "The Godfather" Joe Calabrese is not. He's en route from Rochester, NY to Kalamazoo, MI with the TESN goods and equipment with the 2019 U.S. Curling Nationals starting Saturday.
But Price welcomes Team Persinger skip Rich Ruohonen who begged to get back on in order to acquire the podcast bump and slipped Price a few $$$$ in order to make it happen. And we also catch you up on last week's Curling World Cup and our podcast schedule from next week while at Nationals!
Host Price Atkinson is away this week so "The Godfather" Joe Calabrese is in the captain's chair and is joined by Sean Murray and Marc Beyer to preview the field for the upcoming 2019 USA Curling Nationals in Kalamazoo, MI (Feb. 9-16).
Joe also talks with guest and skip Stephanie Senneker, who will be the "hometown" team on the women's side of the field. It's a loaded episode so get ready. We are your home for USA Curling!
