Athens, GA (Apr 6, 2008) - Sometimes when we review our site logs, we scratch our heads at some of the Google referrers. Today, there were a couple of people wondering why CBS Sports is not broadcasting the 2008 World Men's Curling Championship from Grand Forks, North Dakota. Why the answer is simple of course. or so I thought. CBS Sports is not broadcasting the event. But there WILL be a 2-Hour recap show on CBS College Sports Network on May 1, 2008. Here is the text of the information posted on Vikingland Curling:

CBS College Sports Network will broadcast a special, two-hour program on the 2008 World Men's Curling Championship on Thursday, May 1 at 7 p.m.

The show, packaged by Carr-Hughes Productions of Lake Placid, N.Y., will feature highlights from the championships taking place April 5-13 at the Ralph Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D. Twelve countries will vie for the world championship title, including the USA's Craig Brown rink of Madison, Wis. (Craig is Steve Brown's (of Steve's Curling Supplies) son).

Andrew Catalon and Bill Morehouse will provide play-by-play and color commentary for the program, which will feature highlights from the playoffs as well as the gold-medal game.

The sport of curling has grown to almost 16,000 curlers nationwide with new curling clubs forming most recently in Indianapolis; Bozeman, Mont.; Panorama City, Calif.; and Rutland, Vt.

CBS College Sports Network is available across the country through local cable operators and via satellite on DIRECTV channel 610 and Dish Network channel 152.

USA Curling is sponsored by AIT Worldwide Logistics, AmerAust Technologies and Nike as well as by AT&T through a joint marketing program with the U.S. Olympic Committee.

So the lesson here is to trust the Curling Googlers (to a point ;-) ).
