1. In the sport of curling, when you raise a stone outside of the rings directly back onto a stone inside of the rings. This is a difficult shot to execute, and is usually attempted when a come-around is not available.

2. A segment in the podcast "The Curling Show," where host Dean Gemmell asks the guest to respond in "one to three words" about a particular name or topic (he is often very liberal with the word count!).
Hart really stuck that runback! Great shot!

In the sport of curling, the subsection of the game where both teams throw the same number of rocks (eight each in a standard game). Scoring only occurs at the conclusion of an end.

We're up one with the hammer with one end to play — we're sure to win!

Howard is up one with the hammer in the 8th End.
Jones blanked the end to maintain the hammer.
