Growing up my Grandpa, Joe McLafferty, helped curlers like Heck Gervais and others at the Granite Curling Club. We would watch them all the time. As I grew up I curled some but enjoyed watching it on t.v. more especially , the Scotties and The Brier. At our house we always ate our suppers together as a family at the table. No exceptions except when The Scotties or The Brier were on. then it was o.k. to sit in the living room because “curling” was on. To this day the same holds true!
