Ice Ice baby

While Canadian Olympic Trials fever peaks on CBC Dec. 10 and 11, Americans will get a curling fix via the ICE 2005 show on NBC.

The four-hour, two-day broadcast on the U.S. Olympic network airs that weekend from 4-6 pm eastern each day, and also features two two other sports, luge and bobsled/skeleton.

This is the third time that the three sports have come together for a pre-packaged showpiece, and ratings have been solid with 6.5 million unique viewers tuning in.

The curling segment was filmed in Duluth, and will feature the two U.S. Olympic reps for Torino, the Cassie Johnson and Pete Fenson teams.
