Meanwhile, in Canada, the Tournament of Hearts (the Canadian Women's National Championships) is going on right now. Jennifer Jones rink, the defending National and World Champion), has a tiebreaker today against PEI to make the playoffs.
And the Brier (the Canadian Men's National Championships) starts next weekend.
Has anyone else besides me been following these events?

The finals of the men's and women's US National Championships are today. The women's final is actually just underway. It pits 2006 Olympian Casie Potter (nee Johnson) against the Allison Pottinger rink.
The Men's final is between 2006 Olympic bronze medalist and defending national champion Pete Fenson and Heath McCormick, who has finished 4th each of the last two year.
And under the new US Olympic trails format, each of the finalists are now the first qualifiers for the 2014 Sochi Olympic trials.

Meanwhile, up north, the Canadian's women's national championships (The Scottie's Tournament of Hearts) begins today.

McCormick makes it over the hump, defeating Fenson 5-4. Great last end after what seemed like a kind of boring middle of the match to my untrained eye.

In a sport, that for the most part is dominated in the US by teams from the Midwest, McCormick is the first men's team from the east to win nationals in a long time. Last year, after 15 straight years in the playoffs, Patti Lank (from Buffalo) finally broke through and won the women's national championship. And earlier this year, the Dropkin rink, from Boston, won the men's US junior national championships.
I'd like to say that my team was competitive with McCormick at the Eastern playdowns, and we were for a short while, trading forces (forcing the team with hammer to only take one) for three ends before they took control and we ended up losing 9-2.

Is there anywhere online or otherwise to watch curling between now and the Olympics or will I have to wait another year?

But the men's final is being broadcast today at 4pm on the NBC Sports Network.
The two teams in they final today, Tyler George and Brady Clark, qualify for the Sochi Olympic qualifier along with last year's finalists, 2006 Olympic Broze Medalist Pete Fenson and last year's National Champion, Heath McCormick.
