As our curling season starts to pick up steam and the rocks start sliding closer and closer towards the pinpoint of the year, the 2018 Winter Olympics, the intensity meter seems to be turning up week in and week out.
Some teams are handling the pressure of the Olympic season quite well. Some are revving up their game in the early part of the season and look to move from a "what if" possibility to an Olympic title contender. And some have felt the 352lbs of weight crash in on them. Pressure and stress are interesting emotions that can bring out the best and worst in people.
But what about controversy? We have had a relatively quiet season on the controversy front, especially compared to year's past. No allegations of cheating. No major falls and injuries. And changes were brought in to the sport from the governing federation with major approval.
Who knew #TwineTime would be the one to get people riled up? Well it happened folks....
