Lots of Curling Action Today
As Alan watches the Ontario women's playdown to determine the qualifier for this year's Tournament of Hearts, I didn't make it to Outlook, so I'm watching the Saskatchewan women's playdown via their webcast AND watching Howard vs. McEwen on CBC at the Canadian Open.
The semi-final in Outlook is just beginning, but the final of the Open is just underway. Howard's team's performance in the first few ends reminded me of his performance in the Olympic trials: deer in the headlights type of stun. At the same time, McEwen looks very good.
Meanwhile, women's playdowns are being held in most of the other provinces as well. The entrants for the Tournament of Hearts will also be determined this weekend in Alberta, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, PEI (delayed until Monday due to the weather), and the Territories.
