How Much Does Mankato Care about Curling?
I just checked the Mankato Free Press on-line. Their team's unexpected success is only the third story in the sports section!
The lead story in the sports section is about a high school girl's golf team.
The second story is about the Mankato Area Gymnastics School.
Curling. Still the Rodney Dangerfield of sports?
Update #1: Phil Miller tells me this story was front and center of the print version.
Update #2: Todd Birr had another poor showing today, curling only 73%, and the US lost to Germany 7-5. I expect that Alan's wish has come true, and Canada will face the better of the two teams in the final tomorrow.
