End-of-the-year lists -- what would you add?

Here's a rather basic, Canadian-focused rundown of the stories of the year in curling from the Canadian Press via the Globe and Mail. Lots of attention given -- rightly so -- to Brad Jacobs and his rink.

“Brad Jacobs might be the hottest curler in the world,” said Russ Howard, a two-time world champion and curling broadcaster. “They were very impressive. To go through the Olympic trials 8-0, that’s a pretty tough bonspiel.”

So what stories would you add?

In addition to the CP list, mine would also include:

** Nicolas Edin winning the world championship.

** The U.S. men having to fight for a spot in the Olympics.

** Russ Howard being inducted into the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame.

** The announced changes to the Brier and Scotties format.

** Eve Muirhead and Team Scotland winning the world championship

** Holding a world championship in Latvia.

** Al Cameron leaving the Calgary Herald for the CCA
