Sounds Like a Mutual Admiration Society

WHAT HOMAN & CO. HAVE ACHIEVED, AT SUCH AN EARLY AGE, IS CLEARLY UNMATCHED AND UNEQUALLED BY ANY WOMEN'S CURLING TEAM IN THE HISTORY OF THE SPORT.

A CURLER LIKE HOMAN - AND THE TEAM SHE HAS ASSEMBLED - COMES ALONG ONCE IN A LIFETIME. AND WHEN THAT HAPPENS ALL YOU CAN REALLY SAY IS 'BINGO'.

IN ADDITION TO SUPERIOR FITNESS, MENTAL TOUGHNESS, STRATEGIC AND INNOVATING TECHNICAL SKILLS, THIS TEAM HAS A SKIP WITH A TAKEOUT WEAPON THAT NO FORMER CURLING CHAMPION HAS EVER
POSSESSED.

UNDOUBTEDLY, A TRUE CANADIAN CURLING PRODIGY, THE BEST THING THAT'S EVER HAPPENED TO WOMEN'S CURLING IN CANADA.

Vic's been running the same schtick for nearly 30 years. You learn to tune him out - when required.

Scheidegger and Bottcher are good choices for the next cycle. Scheidegger requires enhanced performance training while Bottcher just needs another 1 or 2 years - could be the next Kevin Koe!

Scheidegger could also use an upgrade at 3rd - - - best merger already brought up - The Scheidegger sisters teaming with a smorgasbord of Kaitlyn Lawes, Joss Peterman, Kelcey Rocque.



I'm not saying it won't happen but a Casey Scheidegger teaming up with Kelsey Rocque is probably not a good pairing. Both players are life-long skips and I actually don't see either of them being a good third for the other. That being said, I do agree that Scheidegger does need an upgrade at third (as does Rocque, in her current team configuration).

Bottcher has been a threat in Alberta at all levels since he was about 15 or 16 years old. He has improved most every year and he has a great understanding of the game. He could be a factor four years from now.

Also just read that Reid and Jill Officer are teaming up for the mixed doubles since Joanne is busy with other duties. Good luck to them. Two really nice people and both excellent curlers.
