not really a miracle...she's been better than both teams all year. Top 3 teams in Canada: Fleury -- Einar -- Jones. Kerri's been due for awhile...nice to see her break through. 

Yeah, it's not the new brushes (they all have to use the exact same ones now) but the new WAY of brushing. It's called "Directional Sweeping", and it really does work. They can actually sweep it to cu

Getting out of Manitoba this year for women will be a dog fight. There are a lot of good women's teams this year. 

I always equate this to the old question of whether Jeff Stoughton is alive and still curling. If he is then we know who's winning MB mens.

Is Jennifer Jones still alive and playing?

Gunnlaugson beats McEwen to take MB men's title.

The Curse of Mike McEwen continues :P

 

What curse? He's won a bunch of Bison crests... 

Can not believe Gunner ever won a provincial title. Insane. Hopefully Mike finds a way through the WC game. I personally think this current incarnation of the team is sour and isn't ever going to work. Buddy of mine and I were saying they need to get Dunstone back from Sask, have him Skip, Mike 3rd, Reider 2nd and Samagalski Lead... That'd be a team....

He has 2x as skip but not the real big one.

He hasn't had a good team for a long time... But that old team should have at least one Brier title. They were the best team in the world for about 5 years, but couldn't get by Stoughton in Provincials. But that was years ago now. There's no "curse" for McEwen...

The current McEwen team has the most passive aggressive communication, especially for a team trying to accomplish the same goal.  That lead is a real ******.

The bigger problem is the panic McEwen works himself into when he has a tough end and struggles to read the ice.  He takes himself right out of games.

Gunnlaugson is crazy but he keeps things positive and stays calm.

Mcewen won't ever be a third. Guy is a skip

Possibly... He's mentally fragile, I think. But Chad and I think that configuration with Dunstone would work. 

JBR is spot on... Gunner is nuts but he doesn't get as worked up as Mike. Takes **** as it happens and doesn't stress. Mike is a basket case, based on what I've seen.

Most curlers would love to be "cursed" like McEwen. I don't get that comment.

I just think that his brain is wired to be the guy making the throw that he calls.

But yeah I do think Mcewen gets too much into his own head about things. Gotta be able to just let **** slide and deal with it all as it happens. 90% of the game is half mental.

Nice to see Jones pumped after winning that game.  Every other time I've watched her play this season I've got a miserable vibe from her, just seemed like she was losing the passion.  Hopefully she has a good Scotties, but she's probably in a dogfight to make the top 4.

Even a half-passioned Jones is better then the alternative.

FFS. MB gives up 7 in one end to NB this afternoon.

Did you see how it happened? I've seen the buzz online but have no clue how it's even possible at this level. There had to be a picked rock or something....I mean, they don't miss enough in order to give up a 7....especially to a team as shitty as a Maritimes team.

Negative as it was not the prime game.
