    Just received this note from Jim Armstrong:

    Darryl and I just did three hours with Rick Mercer and Gordon Campbell at the Olympic Curling Venue. God knows how it will be edited,, but, if nothing else, it should b a great promotion for Wheelchair Curling. I am told that it will be televised in his season-ending program, next Tuesday....great fun....I hope we get our message across.....

    For those unfamiliar with Rick Mercer, he hosts a nationally televised show The Rick Mercer Report on CBC and available via BitTorrent for those unable to tune in on Tuesdays at 8 pm local time.

    The event was covered in detail on The Curling News blog

    Rick Mercer Reports is as good as it gets for promotion. Yet again, well done, I am sure, Jim...

    But is this simply a self-serving "Armstrong promotion"? I hope not, but all of a sudden, our sport is getting a surprising amount of publicity........Never before......
