We're back this week and Price Atkinson has co-host "The Godfather" Joe Calabrese on the scene again to recap the Women's World Championship in Denmark plus look ahead to next week's Men's World Championship in Lethbridge, Alberta.
This week's guest is Dan Wiza from the Madison Curling Club who is throwing second stones for Team Murray at the 2019 U.S. Mixed Nationals in Denver. He's also on his way to the Senior Worlds in Norway next month and is looking for another spot in the World Championship!
This week host Price Atkinson is in Silkeborg, Denmark for the 2019 Women's World Curling Championship where Team USA Led by Jamie Sinclair made a run at the playoffs. But in the end they came up a game short.
Price talks this week with two-time U.S. Olympian and WCTV commentator Ann Swisshelm about Team USA, how the round robin unfolded as well as the untimely injury to skip Jamie Sinclair. After the team was eliminated, he talked with Sarah Anderson who filled in for Jamie in their final game against Switzerland, alternate Vicky Persinger who came in off the bench to play vice and USCA National Team coach Pete Fenson.
All from central Denmark and the Women's World Championship!!
After a week off, Price and Joe are back with a LOT of ground to cover with "championship season" in full bloom with the U.S. Mixed Nationals in the books and many other USA Curling national championship events ongoing.
Our guest this week is 2018 U.S. Olympic gold medalist turned ambassador for USA Curling the one and only Tyler George. He filled us in on what he's doing in his new role with the USCA, what a typical day is like working all over the country, could a return to elite-level curling be in the cards at some point plus the upcoming House of Hearts (March 21-23) charing bonspiel in Duluth to benefit Project Joy.
