The status of the # 1 ranked women's curling team in the

world has been confirmed once again.


Homan, at 27, has now achieved at this age more than any

other Skip in Canadian curling history. She has, as a

matter of fact, achieved at this juncture more than Schmirler,

C. Jones and J. Jones did combined!


Undoubtedly, a true Canadian curling prodigy, the best thing

that's ever happened to women's curling in Canada.

'Already Beyond Great'.

Missed first half of game. Any explanation given for Kovaleva playing lead for Russia rather than Nkeiruka?

And I can't help but think how close they were to defeat at the Scotties. Those great shots by Rachel in the Scotties final led to this.



You nailed it, they were so close to not getting there without the brilliance of Rachel's shotmaking. Great job ladies

Vladimir Putkin was not pleased.

The two players that Russia has changing positions have two very different strengths they seem to bring to the game. Nkeiruka (Kira) is a great sweeper, strong and adds a lot to that shotmaking while Alina is a more of a shotmaker having skipped a fair bit in the past.

To beat Rachel, the plans is to be aggressive and put pressure on her, and it was likely a strategy move to put the player in who could better position those first two shots. Hard to say what would be been different had Kira been in the lineup on a couple of Sidorova draws early in the game.

It really doesn't matter what Jenny has won or will win in

the future because her record will always be severely

tainted by the GIMLI fiasco which is still odious.

Certainly the only Scotties skip in curling history to

receive jeers as she scurried from the rink.


P.S. The messy dismissal of Cathy O. didn't exactly add to

her endearment either.

In the big picture it doesnt matter. She has the wins and that is what her legacy is going to based on. It is not like Homan is known as a sweetheart either, LOL!
