Curling's Greatest Kidnappings!
No, not the illegal types. But the kind where you bring in a 'foreign' curler to help your squad. Obviously, the best kidnapping was when JJ brought in Kid Lawes as her vice but it doesn't qualify cuz Lawes was a fellow Manitoban.
Here's my top kidnappings -
1. Jeff Stoughton acquires Mark Nichols - a former Olympic gold medallist dropping down to lead to play with the guy who said his team had no chance at repping Canada. WOW. Now, Nichols is a classic lead with tons of experience, helping Jeff win another Brier. Really fitting in to life in Winnipeg as he's working here and curling here.
2. Jennifer Jones - bringing Ontarian Dawn Askin into her house. Askin has developed into curling's greatest lead, only now being challenged by Lisa Weagle.
3. Ryan Fry - but the snake-man has become curling's most prolific rent-a-curler. Have slider, will travel! Paladin!!!
Other prolific kidnappings - Johnny Mo (by Martin), that beautiful Quebec girl by Andrea Schopp, Georgina Hawkes (by Jennifer Jones), Patty Simmons (by Kevin Koe), Pat Ryan (by Ferbey), Jimmy Ursel (by Quebec).
Gotta be a few I missed.
I'm one of the good guys now!
