  • 2019 Tim Horton's Brier

    Starts tomorrow with the Wild Card play in game. I'm not expecting a whole lot out of the Saskatchewan team. I'd be surprised if they make it past cut-down day

      Haha yeah, for a province where curling is almost religion, it's unfortunate that the Men's teams cant compete with the field the way the Women seem to

        To be fair, the women have like 2 elite teams and the rest of the field is even. The men have 2 otherworldly, 3 elite and then another 2 that wont win the Brier but would easily medal in the worlds. Tough time for almost any mens team not in that upper echelon that's nearly impossible to reach.

          Looking at the pools I think if Sask play well they have a chance to make it to the championship round but that will be as far as they get!

            When these teams cross provinces to put teams together we need one who is based out of Sask. I guess Dunstone has done that. I use Koe as an example of how they've done the last couple of years. Alberta gets the credit for a team with a front end out of Sask and Ont and now isn't Koe the only one who's originally from AB?

              Koe isn't from Alberta either, he's from Northwest Territories.

                  Well to be fair, it goes by your province of residency, not where you were born. Geoff Walker is from Beaverlodge, AB and moved to Newfoundland to play with Gushue

                    I'm aware, simply posting a fact. Walker no longer lives in Newfoundland either.

                        He is. Sales in the Patch will be booming

                          They could rename it the Fryer Patch

                            X2, although as always I am hoping we make the playoffs. Will need to go 4-3 in Pool A to get to championship round, but realistically need to go 5-2 to have chance of making playoffs as records in the 2 rounds are aggregated in final standings.

                            That would involve Sask defeating all the mediocre teams in Pool A (NL, PE, QC, and YK) and beating at least one of the three good teams (Jacobs, Carruthers, Botcher).

                            Start off this afternoon with a tough opponent in MB.

                              Saskatchewan gasses it's first game against Manitoba. Muyres was heavy in like the 7th for an open draw for 2.

                              MacEwan made a great angle rasied takeout in 8 to score 1 and move a sask stone frozen on the button.

                              Kirk had an open draw to lie 2 with his first stone. He decided to go around cover. Don't know why he did that. He could've just went open. Anyways, he was light and set up an easy short runback double by MacEwan to lie 2. Muyres had to draw for 1

                              In 10, Saskatchewan made some freezes, Manitoba was lying 1 back 4. There was a pocket to freeze in. Kirk was light on his first, top 8. MacEwan was heavy on his first. Muyres then decided to try to hit shot stone through a port. He wrecked, giving MacEwan the open draw for 2, which he made.

                              A good chance to beat one of the better teams at the Brier. Up 3-0. But basically pizzed it away.

                              I think we should be able to proceed past the pool stage, but no farther.

                              Disappointing, this game was there to be won.
