As the NYT reports …

Five consecutive victories culminated Saturday night in something that has never happened before: an Olympic gold for the American curlers as they defeated Sweden, 10-7, before a flag-waving throng from back home. Shuster and his four teammates — Tyler George, Matt Hamilton, John Landsteiner and Joe Polo, who served as the team’s alternate — defeated Sweden, the top-ranked team in the world, so soundly that it conceded the match with several rocks to play in the 10th and final end.

Why am I wasting your time on news you already knew, you grumble. It is because it is time that Williams has a curling team at the club level at least!

This has happened in Pittsfield, where a year-old club believes the great results from the  Olympic will swell their ranks.

Apologia in advance: • If indeed the ice rink is not in the old field house, what do I know! • If indeed there is a current club, I couldn’t find a listing. But here is a reference to a former organization.
