Two times in one week? Our Friday emergency podcast thanks to several big moves regarding USA Curling staff and teams, including the "new" Team Sinclair along with Joe Polo staying with the #YoungBucks.
TESN's "The Godfather" Joe Calabrese and Price Atkinson plus "Specs" Dustin Tomasetti talked about it all, as well as the hiring of two-time Olympian Jessica Schultz to lead the USCA's women's high performance and junior programs. And will we even have curling this fall with events beginning to get canceled?
The top women's teams around USA Curling began to take shape last week with the announcements of Teams Peterson and Christensen. And more team announcements are expected this coming week. TESN's Joe Calabrese and Price Atkinson get into all the latest changes and how the COVID quarantine has played havoc at home.
And we welcome our guest former NFL defensive end, future NFL Hall of Fame and founder of the All-Pro Curling Team Jared Allen. He shared in their team's disappointment in coming up short of qualifying for U.S. Nationals this past February, continuing to pursue the highest level of the sport and preparing for next season with skip Jason Smith leading the way again and how dedicated ice in Nashville could help take them to the next level of improvement.
