I started playing because my best friend played. We played at Deer Lodge. 

When I was in Junior High, I played out of Charleswood, who would let me practice daily after school, which was right next door. ;) 

I was lucky enough to practice next to Jeff Stoughton and his team many times. I also played a bit with Kelly Scott (nee Mackenzie) when she was on the Provincial winning team. Great atmosphere and environment to encourage young curlers.

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

It's a plague... It's either this or you don't do it. There is absolutely no other way. And the players were all free to opt out (and several did). It was completely their choice.  I'm a huge men

That is the coolest thing about curling, that as a recreational player any given day you could practice next to, or even play against, the best in the world.

I never thought I'd say this but our province is totally ****** up. From wanna be cowboys holding illegal rodeos & 2000 people not wearing masks sitting together like sardines to nutbar pastors threatening neighbourhood residents with physical violence & vandalism calling them "evil people". When my wife retires in 5 or 6 years we're outta this place.

And today Kenney shut down the Leg for at least 2 weeks because of the dramatic increase in cases. Lots of other businesses being forced to operate regardless of COVID... but JK gonna go into hiding. Cripes...

He woud gain a lot of lost respect back if he kicked those 17 MLA's out of caucus. Getting tired of their bitching & complaining in the midst of a pandemic. What a bunch of assholes.

there's no question in my mind, Kerri Einarson's rink is by far the best women's rink in Canada, which automatically makes them the best rink in the world....but something is amiss this week. I'm not sure if it's in their head....or if they're just burned out from too much curling back to back to back to back in the bubble....but they're a mess right now.

Have they been in a bubble since February? If so, why treat athletes like they're prisoners?

Not entirely. I think they've been home for short stretches but MOSTLY in the bubble during this span. How else could you do it safely? There is no other way to run this event safely... 

I just think that for the mental health of the players it shouldn't be allowed. I just wonder if it's worth it. It's not like they're making millions like NHL players do.

I'm a huge mental health advocate as you know... But it takes a back seat to people dying from a plague. The ONLY thing that matters is this virus and keeping it at bay.
