The Black Bonspiel of Wullie MacCrimmon by W.O. Mitchell
When Wullie MacCrimmon, a shoemaker in the 1930s foothills town of Wild Rose, muses aloud that he would give anything to skip his curling team in the MacDonald Brier, the Devil (a travelling salesman who deals in wholesale souls and retail sin) suddenly appears and makes him an offer. Wullie makes a counter offer, and one of the greatest matches in curling history is on a Black Bonspiel. When the Devil appears with his curling team--Guy Fawkes (lead), Judas Iscariot (second), and Macbeth (third)--Wullie and his team are in for one hell of a match.
