OT: The most amazing curling shot you'll ever see!

Ok let me set it up for you - it's the last end, and Glenn Howard's Ontario team is down 7-5 against Saskatchewan at the 2009 Brier in Calgary. Saskatchewan has two stones counting in the rings and there is no double take-out possble to throw..... or is there?? (You may have to rewind and watch it a few times)



Simply amazing!

It was an amazing shot, but IMO the best curling shot ever was "The Shot" in 2005 by Jeniffer Jones simply because of what was at stake. Make it, you are Canadian champion, miss it, you finish 2nd. Biggest shot under pressure I've ever seen.

I thought it was a joke... but no, it turned out it was serious... good shot, but since I don't watch curling and never played it, I guess, I don't get exited much by it...

Curling for you = Nascar for me...Even though Nascar as millions of fans that event is just not for me...

How people can actually sit and watch over 3 hours of left turns in a Nascar race is beyond me....I kind of understand why people that watch nascar have to drink beer while watching..You would have to be hammered to enjoy something that boring for over 3 hours....


Personally though I like watching curling..It's a very strategic game...Great shot by Glen Howard BTW....

If there's nothing on I usually have curling on in the background because the sounds of rocks on ice and rocks connecting are soothing.

The yelling on the other hand, especially the women, is grating.

Shots like that are awesome, though.

I remember seeing that while waiting for Sportscentre to come on. I am not a curling fan, but I can appreciate a shot like that, I really didn't expect him to make a shot like that, I figured he would at best get the two to tie it.

PJ Stock always plays a clip of the girls just screaming that, it's pretty amusing.

To me it was almost like a hail mary in Football. even though, a Hail Mary has a chance of winning the game for you, I don't think anybody expected this to have much of a chance of making it. Made for awesome tv. Go GUSHUE!

I guess the same applies to fighting in hockey...Perfectly acceptable in a hockey rink BUT do it in a bar or in public and see how fast the cops arrive....
