Is There Anybody There?
Is the Attendance as Pathetic as It Looks?
Tonight, during the 8th draw, CurlTV showed some shots of the "crowd" at the Lowell, Massachusetts, venue for the 2006 Men's World Curling Championships.
We saw a few fans, mostly relatives of the curlers, and tonnes of empty seats. I really have to wonder whether the paid attendance has exceeded 1000 for any of these draws.
If the the World Curling Federation isn't questioning its decision to hold the championships in Lowell, it should be!
