They’re buff. They’re tough.
There was much more at stake for the winner of Sunday afternoon’s Tim Hortons Brier bronze-medal game than a pile o’ cash.
Ontario’s Glenn Howard has clearly proven he’s the cream of the crop at this year’s Brier.
The stakes in the heavyweight match were pretty simple.
Let the jockeying begin. Now that the early part of the Tim Hortons Brier is done, teams are trying to find their stride as the finish line draws near.
There must be something in that Ontario water. You can understand Glenn Howard finishing his day at the Tim Hortons Brier with a 4-0 record. Brad Jacobs of Sault Ste. Marie is another matter.
As last year's World Curling Tour season progressed, Heather Nedohin's goals may have seemed pretty lofty.
All hail Nail.
Four decades. Four titles. Glenn Howard established himself as one of Canada's all-time great skips with another gold-medal performance at the world curling championship.
The glitter of the medal may have been different than what she came here for, but at least Heather Nedohin goes home a winner.
The sense of frustration in Heather Nedohin’s voice was palpable.
Heather Nedohin delivered on her promise. After losing twice Thursday to end the round-robin portion of the world women's curling championship, Nedohin was quick to take the rap.
From plenty of promise to a huge disappointment.
It seems there's no sense doing things the easy way. Entering the last day of round-robin play at the women's world curling championship, Heather Nedohin knew her Canadian team would be in the mix for a playoff spot.
There's something to be said about getting the old gang back together. A sense of familiarity and predictability. Playing in the comfort zone.
Canada won the world curling championship nightcap game 6-5 with a 10th-end steal when Mijam Ott of Switzerland threw her last shot wide.
As far as transformations go, this one was night and day.
