I wouldn't mind curling so much if it didn't seem to be the one event that always cuts into the hockey coverage. It always seems to run over and wipe out a major portion of the first periods of games.
I'm also starting to wonder why the main coverage on NBC during the night starts so late. It's sometimes hard to stay up - due to a long day - and they always save the most interesting events to show at the end.
Those sneaky network bastards.
