    To bad, we shuold have someone who knows wheelchair curling doing it,
    not people who have never seen it.

    As far as I can tell from what has been announced, there will be no live tv of the curling; just sledge hockey.

    At the 2009 Worlds, Cate and I live-blogged Team Canada, who were generous enough to help with our expenses. We have press credentials for the Paralympics but don't have a sponsor this year who can help with accommodation.

    If we had somewhere to stay in Vancouver, we would cover the games.

    Several thousand people followed our daily end-by-end 2009 Worlds coverage.

    We'd rather you and Cate at Nationals anyways Eric! Team Canada gets plenty of press as it is.
