Comments from the crowd "If I had a fantasy curling team, I would chose Darren Lehto for one of my sweepers". Meanwhile, Mike is making the moves on me since Darren is "busy". He also wanted to point out that the Johnson team was Leon's 2nd choice...

There is a cornbroom sweeping clinic upstairs which is leaving Tilker winded. Apparently it is his best workout since the one he had at home by himself this morning.
