14 teams signed up for the ON Scotties before OCA pulled the plug. 13 disappointed teams and one with a sigh of relief.
I don't think Raytch & Co. emitted so much as a sigh.
Raytch is a super-power in curling. Nobody in curling is as highly trained, slides to the stick and has relatively advanced strategy. Say what you want about Raytch's personality deficits, her team is almost always ready to ambush and/or devastate opponents. Its in her blood - she's a killer.
If they don't cancel/postpone the Scotties just a matter of who shows up to confront the killers in the event final. It would seem, based on last time out that Einarson's group has the best chance to topple Team Homan but 47 yr old Jennifer Jones still lurks, albeit Jones' shrieks & aggression still no match for Homan's percentages.
Fleury & Scheidegger will also factor into the selection process for Homan's vic in the grand finale.
McCarville won't be there - she's easily the most stubborn out for a power squad like Homan. Krista is a marvelous curler who just lacks a bit of team horse-power when it comes to toppling Homan.
I'm one of the good guys now!
