Ironic maybe, but the other day, I wrote about my depiction of curling. (Now that I think about it - curling can also be 'curling' your hair! Hmm...) I later had the pleasure of speaking with Jacqui Kapinowski. Okay, so you may be thinking, 'Well, who's that?' Jacqui is a New Jersey native and is part of the USA Paralympic Curling Team! As the only female on the team, she is "hungry" to bring home the gold!
I just received an email from Jacqui with some information I must share.First, in case you are wondering what events are taking place when, here is the schedule.And second, what I think is even more exciting - a place to watch the Games!You can follow the live coverage here! Highlights and other Paralympic news can be seen here! (PS -- take a look at today's Daily Dose post. You'll never guess what Rob wrote about... curling!)
Happy curling everyone! (Whether it's on ice, in the gym, or with your hair!)
We've all done homework right? Solving multiplication facts in third grade, reading Romeo & Juliet in tenth grade... or in my case, doing some research on the Paralympic Games that begin in just four days. Granted I don't get one of those awesome "star" stickers like I did in school, but in any case, this is fun homework.
Take a look at the US Paralympic website. Better yet, don't just take a look at it, do some research, some homework, and be the cool kid in school that knows all about a different subject! There's everything from both the Summer and Winter games, events, photos, videos, biographies of the athletes, even information related to the military. Go on, be that cool kid, do your homework, and give yourself a star sticker!Reply back and let us know all about your Paralympic homework! (Hey, it's better than multiplication!)
Let the Paralympic Games begin! Tomorrow is the opening ceremony of the games. Take a look at the rest of the schedule and events through March 21.I've been wondering, aside from watching it online, if there would be any broadcast of the games on television. Luckily, I just discovered that on Tuesday, NBC announced they will broadcasting highlights of the Paralympics.COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. and NEW YORK – March 9, 2010 – NBC Sports and Universal Sports announced today the multiplatform broadcast coverage of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games presented by GE. Coverage on NBC Sports will include a one-hour program recapping the Opening Ceremony on Saturday, March 13 (1-2 p.m. ET) and a two-hour highlights program on Saturday, April 10 (3-5 p.m. ET).
In addition to the coverage on NBC Sports, Universal Sports will broadcast a nightly two-hour show for nine straight nights dedicated to the daily competition of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games starting on Monday, March 15 at 6 p.m. ET (re-air at 11 p.m. ET) and continuing nightly through Tuesday, March 23.
Read the rest. Personally, now that I have had the opportunity to speak with her, I am actually quite excited to see Jacqui Kapinowski and the rest of the USA Curling Team in action!Reply back and let us know your thoughts on the coverage of the Games!
