The difference between a win and a loss in curling often can be measured in millimeters.The game requires sending a 43-pound granite stone more than 100 feet down a sheet of ice to a target with great precision.In a game last weekend as Team Colorado battled at the Denver Curling Club to represent the region at USA Curling’s Club National Championships, two stones were so close that I told my team a whisper couldn’t fit between them.On the next sheet of ice, Colorado Springs curler Jerry Van Brunt said a stone had plenty of room – that it was like sending a hot dog down a hallway! He’s a fantastic curler – fifth at worlds – so I believe him.You can watch curling tonight (Friday) at 9 p.m. on NBCSN, because it’s “Curling Night in America!”Check it out and let me know what you think.If you have questions during the show, drop me an email or Tweet me at @djrosenberry.Cheers and good curling!P.S.: If you signed up for Sunday’s Learn to Curl, I’ll see you in Monument.
