My Pick for the Scott: Kelly Scott and the B.C. Rink
There are several REALLY good teams playing in the 2006 Scott Tournament of Hearts. But after the way Kelly Scott and the British Columbia rink played in the Olympic playdowns, and given her rink's consistently good play over the past several years, I am picking her team to win The Scott. But I don't have a lot of confidence in this pick. The other teams are very good, too.
In other words, picking the Kelly Scott rink to win means I am attaching only about a 30% chance to their winning, with slightly lower percentages for Cathy King, Jennifer Jones, Colleen Jones, and the others.
Dark horse favourite: Andrea Kelly and the New Brunswick team, last year's Canadian Junior Champions. They're good, but they're young. It'll be interesting to see how they do.
