The Jacobs team is absolutely electrifying with Kennedy in tow. Don't know if they can override their current contract with Fry when Fry decides to return? But behavioural issues may nullify contract, who knows?

Meanwhile, back at the ranch - Raytch is starting to take a page out of the JJ Jones textbook. She's hanging onto 3rd place by the skin of her teeth, barely making her shots but I sense she'll slither into 3rd and once done, she'll chop Jones down into small pieces in the semi - before annihilating Einarson in Cup final.

Loved it when Raytch ignored an open hit, tied coming home and decided to draw to the minimum 8 foot for the W.

Lay off Ryan - he is about 1/2 that team and they know it

Plus i hear inspectors are looking into the minor incident
that was mishandled by club , media , this site, you and a few others.

You may have to apoligize

Raytch overcomes minor resistance in final draw to slide into 3rd place in event & snags final playoff berth.

Playing none other than Jennifer Jones tonite @7pm

If Raytch is on her game it shouldn't be much of an affair. Not only the 10+ pt. difference Raytch usually imposes on Jones but the sharpness & clarity of the shot-calling, sweep calls & defensive abilities.

Raytch knows Jones over exposes herself when playing and that should give Homan the upper hand.

Raytch had some putrid outings this event but she'll be bowling tough tonite!

Biggest surprise of the event is Casey Scheidegger failing to secure a playoff spot. Totally unexpected but she's got no one to blame but herself. Otherwise, the form chart held

Your biggest surprise sure changes, your JJ predictions change every post. From the very first page, your very first post you said (in quotes) "Laura Walker or JJ Jones - neither are the picture of stability right now."

lol - you always have Jones out if it before it ever gets going. hohoho!

Nice win by Koe and the boys -- they've only been playing in seven events so far, too!

BJ riding high after Team Koe invokes a comeback for all times vs. a solid, canadian, world & Olympic champion.

Koe & BJ actually out-pressured Mark & Brad down the stretch to advance.

Game of ThirdsL

BJ - who managed to escape the utter obscurity and despair of playing w/ Magic Mike, now a super-hero while former skip Mike & Reid the Meek flounder in curling's hobo-ville.

Kennedy - plucked from semi-retirement by Jacobs after "Fry-Gate" and immediately bonding with his new mates. Not only bonding - they're a friggin' super-team!

Another accurate prediction (sarcasm).. She is not bowling tonight, more like football, straight through the uprights hitting zippo.

Nice win for Jones team. And ML, it was a 20 point difference , not 10.

Some amazing things happening this week in Estevan. Observations:

1. Raytch Homan and her Ottawa Supergirls hit some kryptonite speed bumps this week as they transition from the great defensive powerhouse/hitting squad to a full meal deal nuance team in early preparation for their 4 year Olympic run. This week did not run smoothly for The Great Raytch.

2. Casey Scheidegger not making playoffs perhaps a greater shock than Raytch getting bounced by JJ in semi.

3. Laura Walker still not making enough shots to be considered an elite canadian team. She's a fabulous ambassador, too bad her curling skills aren't up to her diplomatic ones.

4. The Last Train to Jonesville keeps on a tickin'. Jones can infuriate her fans with routine misses and the odd bizarre piece of strategy but in the end she's the greatest winner in the ladies game. Should prolly have 8 or 9 STOHs, not 6. Refusing to go onto "last leg status" the JJ just keeps on truckin'

5. The McEwen/Reid Crossword Puzzle Experiment will soon come ot an end. Not immediately as they still have to honor valued sponsors but for all intents and purposes this team isn't with it. Advice to either Mike or Reid - 1-800-RYAN-FRY

6. Marc Kennedy is the single biggest story of the event - and the entire rejuvenated Jacobs Gang is a close 2nd. WOW - JUST - WOW.

Today's finals:

Both games a fierce battle of 3rd. Kennedy vs. BJ should be fascinating to watch. Koe coming off the canvas to TKO Gushue was a special moment in curling history.

Jones vs. Einarson - the Queen of Manitoba/Canadian/World/Olympic Curling (Jones) vs. her dogged pursuer (Einarson)

Val Sweeting - the unexpected Einarson acquisition will be under the heavy spotlight as she tries to shine as a top-flite 3rd - and she's up against one of the very best 3rds - EVER in Kaitlyn "Kid Dynamite" Lawes.

Both Einarson & Jones will cough up their share of misses & half-shots, no question so the game rests on the first 3 players.

Birchard vs. Peterman is another great matchup in a Slam final.

Good luck to all 4 teams in todays finals. You've all earned your spot.

I was just on facebook and noticed this article on curling sport injuries. I was reading some of the responses and came across this comment. I'll post the link shortly.


Elsie Marie Mcleod commented: Women suffer as well. Like Jennifer Joan after her second child. I seen that she couldn’t throw the rocks like she use to. Because she gained weight on her hips. That called middle age spread and some of it is for having children. Watching her now throwing the rocks after a second year. She looks like she’s used to her change on her body.
Lots of the other women suffer from guilt of leaving their child or children.
