    CBC's "Bold" so-called coverage of the mens world curling championship is again dismal at best mainly due to the lack of it. Their only saving grace is the excellent job done by a very knowledgable colour commentator. Who is this young man? I hope some day he'll get to work for a network that actually cares about their viewers more than their secretive, self-serving political affiliations.
