The curler can induce a curved path by causing the stone to slowly turn as it slides, and the path of the rock may be further influenced by two sweepers with brooms who accompany it as it slides down the sheet, using the brooms to alter the state of the ice in front of the stone. A great deal of strategy and teamwork go into choosing the ideal path and placement of a stone for each situation, and the skills of the curlers determine how close to the desired result the stone will achieve. This gives curling its nickname of "chess on ice".

In case you were wondering, the intro is called "Iskloo Dandruff-Morningstar Express" by Vince Kaichan, and can be found on the Chiptunes = Win 2 album. The outro music, as (almost) always, is the amazing "Roll With the Changes" by the immortal REO Speedwagon.
Our intro bumpers, when they appear, are usually performed by the amazingly talented voice artist Kathryn Haywood, and she can be found, communicated-with, and booked on her website. Thank you Kathryn!
Oh, also we use the track "At The Sign Of The Swinging Cymbal" by the John Anderson Big Band for the NPD Top 10's
