Cat-and-mouse games between TSN and curling fans

With one look at your TV Guide, it’s clear the peak of the curling season has arrived.

The Sports Network is in the midst of some 66 hours of wall-to-wall Canadian women’s coverage, and less than a week later it all starts again at the Brier, the national men’s titleshoot. Then come the two world championships, from Latvia (women’s) and the men’s from Victoria.

Throw in some webstreamed games from the world juniors in Sochi, Russia, (Feb. 28-Mar. 10) and the televised Grand Slam finale in April, and these are the best of times for curling junkies.

However, there’s another kind of game being played in conjunction with this on-ice action — this one between networks and curling fans.
