Road to the Roar
This weekend, I've been watching the Road to the Roar --- the preliminary preliminaries, so to speak. It has been enjoyable curling. Excellent teams, even if the top names in curling are not there. And it sure is fun to watch some of the lesser-knowns (e.g. Jason Gunnlaugson).
Once again, I am pretty strongly convinced that the best curling of the season will be the Olympic trials (aka "The Roar of the Rings"), where the best Canadian teams meet to see who will represent Canada in the Olympics. Even if the Canadian teams do not win gold in the Olympics, overall, there is so much depth of superb talent in Canada that I cannot imagine we won't be delighted with the play in December.
