let the big show commence

Interesting there are several big guns at this years Brier in Edmonton, we know who there are without doubt have to be the favorites either Martin, Howard, or Stoughton? lets see if there will be a "DARK HORSE TEAM" to come into play and sneak up the leader board and perhaps SURPRISE US ALL, are THERE ANY SUGGESTIONS ? I would like to go OUT on a limb and suggest that Eddie Mckenzie team PEI will win more than one game at this years Brier?.... PERHAPS EVEN UPSET ONE OF THE FAVORITE CONTENDERS is that going out on a limb or what?

I got ripped in another thread for suggesting that Virtue could be one to look out for this week. I stand by it.

I concur Northern Ontario's Brad Jacobs could very well be a 'candidate" he has been knocking at the door several times, perhaps this is his year? however never count out those newfies to be up on the leader board You can bet Glenn Howard is optimistic making his record breaking 15 appearance at the Brier will he go out with a "bang' or a whimper'?

Looking forward to the MONSTER VS. MONSTER match tonite (Sat)

Martin vs. Stoughton. Both guys want to avoid an opening day loss. Probably means they're limited to one more loss the rest of the week to have a sniff at the 1-2 game.

Look for tons of balls in play on this Brier pool table. Surely to be TSN's feature game else a revolution will occur.

Both guys have to be wary of the firepower represented. Mead & Super J from Iceland (Manitoba) and J-Mo & K-Mart from Tar Sands. Lots of thinking to do as the scoring zones will be tiny indeed - - - slight advantage to Mega-Mind (Martin) as he has the uncanny ability to see what he'll face several shots ahead. Stoughton is no slouch at this but not quite at Martin level.

I agree with you. If that team maintains the form they had in the saskatchewan playdowns they are a darkhorse for playoffs. I dont expect them to take down the big 3 but they can definately take down gushue, menard and maybe jacobs

I give them a chance at a 7-4 record if they keep it up.

My underdog team is Team Jacobs from Northern Ontario. Thought about going with Saskatchewan, but just feel like they're too much of a wild card, even though they are very talented.
