I had been a curler for 30 plus years. It was the last game of the year at our club and I decided to play on another team for the night so they could have enough for a game.

The skip was making his last shot, a take out to win the game. I was in the house calling his shot but had stepped over a rock to help with the sweeping. Unfortunately my pant leg hooked in the handle of the rock and I tripped and fell. I dislocated my shoulder and fractured my humerus. No pun intended. It wasn’t funny at all . It required surgery with a plate and screws to repair it.

Unfortunately with limited mobility I have not been able to curl since but I do enjoy watching it.
