Scotties winner

OK folks get out the crystal balls and go on record with your picks.
Brown over Homan in final, Peterson and Einarson in final 4.

Unless Homan is injured or too sullen she'd never allow a newbie like Brown to take her out.

Einarson has far too much power on her team from skip to lead but her fortunes will depend on whether she can personally rise to the occasion again.

Peterson is a really smart pick as a complete outsider who only got in because of various teams refusing to attend. She's ambitious and emotional - personally, I think Zacharias would be a better pick as the outsider.

If Rachel somehow falters I can see a Zacharias vs Einarson all-Manitoba final.

But if Rachel maintains her laser-like focus I cannot see her anywhere but in the STOH final.

Whoops my bad there is no final 4, it's a final 3. The top team from the 2nd round goes straight to the final and 2-3 playoff in a semi.
I'll adjust slightly, Homan will be #1, Brown will beat Einarson in semi then Homan in final.

I really hope for Brown but would be surprised if they get in top 3. Not sure what so many posters think has changed since last year.

Peterson got in because other teams weren’t eligible not because they refused to attend...

I just watched the first episode of That Curling Show. There were two interesting predictions: Younger teams who haven't been to a Scotties before have an advantage of nothing to compare this event to. (Carey's point.) Second, Atlantic teams have been playing all season, unlike almost everybody else. Birt has momentum and could come on strong. Personally, I expect to see some injuries. If there are no physios in the bubble, (maybe there are) and most personal trainers are advising by Zoom and there are no training facilities, injures are probably. That said, I predict a young fresh team. Zacharias.

Off topic but what's up with the Tim Hortons ads?
The first one says our dark roast was garbage for years but this time we got it right.
The second says after years and years and years of serving egg substitute we finally realized a real egg was better.

Einarson looked very comfortable out there, real sharp for game 1 after season of no play.
Did Northern Ontario change their colour? Doesn't look like the same green.

That would be Dynasty Curling's decision. The official supplier of uniforms of course with Curling Canada's stamp of approval.
Interesting that DCs website indicates that they were founded in 2015 but have over "20 years experience".

That green that NO is forced to wear is putrid!

I agree and does nothing for the women either. There are some lovely shades of green out there that could haves been used.

Zacharias was barely able to hang around with Einarson beyond 7 ends. Einarson took her foot off the pedal around the 6th end and just coasted to shore.

Don't write off Zacharias just yet!

She was fortunate to take her first beating from a compassionate group of fellow Manitobans. It could have gotten ugly if she was up against a remorseless monster like Homan.

Sometimes change for the sake of change is just dumb. I heard these were supposed to be an attempt at throw back uniforms....more like throw up.

Keep the traditional provincial colours and get funky with the wild card uniforms if you feel the need to have splashy uniforms.

I'd like to know who actually decided to change all the colours and the real question, why?

Zacharias is going to have to find a way to throw up weight shots. She tried a triple and a flat double and both times had nowhere near the weight needed to make the shot even though she was pushing out as hard as she could.
You can be competitive at the top level without the up weight as Arsenalult, Mccarville, Birt and Sweeting have shown but if you want to beat players like Homan, Hasselborg, Einarson, Jones and Carey you need to have the shots that they have. Homan and Hasselborg throw the up weight seemingly effortlessly, other players like Lawes and Miskew use a bigger arm push at the end which is what Zacharias will probably need to work on.

Suzanne birt can riffle them as well. Maybe not with the hasselborg or homan range but she can whip them down the sheet as well.

Is there a covid supply chain problem with colours as it looked like Manitoba had the same yellowy green as NO.

NO looks more like baby poop mustard. I'll date myself for the MB colour, it looks like pop shoppe lime rickey. Whatever happened to the two different uniforms? The whites when they play the yellow rocks and the darks when they played the red rocks? Now it's one unrecognizable colour for all.

The Ontario uniforms are from Tim Hortons circa 2014-15

Curling clinic by Homan today. The more I see them the more impressed I am. Total pros, great attitude, great communication, laser focus, just a treat to watch.

Peterson tried her darndest but what it boils down to is -

Team Homan is a Top 5 world class professional curling unit.

Team Peterson is an above average Top 5 amateur Manitoba curling team.

The class difference showed as Homan closed out the classy Manitoba team by my original prediction - 4 or 5 pts.

Two championship skips pitted against each other in tonite's feature:

Chels Carey vs. Jennifer Jones

Weagle is a superior lead to the game but shot-short Kristen McCuish, no offense to the young Manitoban, Weagle is a future Hall of Famer.

2nd - no hall of famers on either team. Lizzy Fyfe & Joss Peterman are the weakest marks on their respective teams.

3rd - on paper and historically Kaitlyn is a tad superior to Selena - however, Selena has transformed herself from a meek rabbit into a ferocious wolf. If Lawes is the least bit out of sorts - Selena will pounce.

Carey is now a superior shot-smith to Jones even though it pains me to say. Jones is the better skip and laser-focused while Carey tends to shut down emotionally when things don't settle her way. However, Jones plays the top skips differently - she makes the assumption they'll make every shot and that shortens the house significantly for the Jones crew.

Both can make spectacular shots featuring up weight. Both can also gas open hits or draws for extra points.

Should be a terrific game, even though its still early!

Originally I thought lime rickey green. I've changed my mind to pickle juice green from a jar of pickles. Again, why?
