Years before I was a BlackBerry addict, I was a curling addict. Growing up in rural Manitoba, Canada, it's a popular winter sport and one that I sunk my 10,000+ hours into before I turned 20. I'm still passionate for the sport -- and still have some mad curling skillz -- but don't have the time to commit to play competitively like I used to. So instead of hitting the rink, for the past couple of seasons I've sponsored the McEwen Curling team (they even let me hold the position of 5th man in the 2010/11 season).
Team McEwen has been tearing up the sport the last few years, rising through the ranks of pro curling and racking up the World Curling Tour and Grand Slam wins. They've been on tv several times now in the finals of these games, repping CrackBerry.com on their team gear.
One of the big televised events coming up in 2013 is the The Dominion All-Star Curling Skins game on TSN, and this year they're opening it up to a fan-based vote to decide which of the top teams will get to play. Voting is now open and runs through to December 10th, and you can re-visit the site each day to cast your ballot.
So if you're a fan of CrackBerry and Curling, jump on over to TSN's website and vote for:
Skip: Mike McEwen
Third: B.J. Neufeld
Second: Matt Wozniak
Lead: Denni Neufeld
