>> national team. you're here with us this morning. you can't think of a better way to spend your sunday.
>> except to be in sochi.
>> we didn't want to rub that in. the first tip is you never curl outside, except on the "today" show?
>> we're going to show you, if you went to a curling club, a facility, first thing they do is show you how to throw the rock, deliver the stone. i'll do that. i think you'll be really accomplished at throwing it yourself.
>> i should point out we also have matt shiner and eric of thor here from the long island club who are going to help dylan and jenna learn to sweep.
>> brushing a very important part of the game . you'll have to count on dylan an jenna to help you when you throw it. basically throwing it toward the house, drawback, put your foot under your chest.
>> when do you let it go? right around there.
>> it's going to catch the fall, maybe it's going to finish. hard! hard!
>> the sheet is about four times as long as this, erica, but i like your chances.
>> you got your sweepers ready. remember you can yell at them.
>> this way?
>> yes, and rotate that way.
>> ladies, here we go. half hour show.
>> come back, come back. you got it.
>> jenna !
>> i think for a first run that was actually pretty good. i see people laughing up here. you thought it was good, too, right? we have a future.
>> this is not as easy as it looks. it's clear when you pick these things up, there's a lot of skill involved, a lot of practice time.
>> there's a lot of physicality involved. the ice will be much better in sochi, so it won't fade off into the corner.
>> we can blame this on the ice.
>> we always blame the ice in conditions. bad ice conditions you can always blame.
>> nice to have you here. thanks to the long island curling club. we'll be back
