TAKES AN INSIDE LOOK AT THE SPORT OF CURLING

WHEN THE EMMY®-WINNING SHOW RETURNS TUESDAY, FEB. 9 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT), EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO®

Segments include:

 

*Sweep This! If you’ve ever watched the Winter Olympics on TV and wondered how a bunch of people sliding rocks across the ice and sweeping with brooms became a sport, let alone an Olympic sport, you’re not alone.  While curling hasn’t exactly gone mainstream here in the United States, it’s a national obsession north of the border.   REAL SPORTS correspondent Bernard Goldberg travels to Canada to see what all the excitement’s about and visits Duluth, Minn., to take an inside look at the sport with a bartender, substitute teacher, construction worker and parole officer, aka the U.S. Olympic Curling team.  Interviews include: U.S. Curling team members – John Benton, Phil Drobnick (coach), Jeff Isaacson, Chris Plys, John Shuster and Jason Smith; Toronto Globe columnist Bob Weeks; Canadian curler Glenn Howard; Ice maker Mark Shurek; amateur curler Eleanor McKitrick.
