Make sure you take the AWD car to the club tonight, we can’t have anyone getting snowed in and sleeping over.
Byes this week are Lickteig and Jansen, I’d say Jansen will probably still lose.
- McLaughlin v Wainberg: Broken dreams and lost handles provide the foundation for this match and no amount of skip/vice conferencing can make up for it. Play fast to win.
- Dubois v Sauro: Should be a tough match for spectators as a heavy Canadian mist will obfuscate most of the sheet. The winning rock will cut through the fog late in the 8th end to reveal the triumphant.
- Anderson v Rohde: Both teams agreed to a pregame meeting to discuss alternative methods for breaking ties. The most promising compromise is to settle matters with a round of ice jarts.
- Trygstad v Perpich: Dirty ice leads to dirty curling. Let’s keep it clean out there.
- Eisfelder v McGovern: Normally anyone who curls with a broom from a Canadian truck stop gets an automatic invitation to the Brier. That didn’t come in for Eisfelder this year, so they’re hanging around their old league. If McGovern can get past the psychological impacts, they might have a chance.
- Tolzmann v Lichty: All members of both teams will forget their curling shoes, resulting in the first match played entirely in flip flops. It will also be the last.
- Hammes v Haga: Hammes brings the box of red, Haga brings the Sprite. I smell prison sangria at the break! Who’s in for chips?
- Allendorph v Boomer: An older and wiser Boomer has been turning a lot heads this season, except for folks in neck braces. Nothing can turn their heads. Because of the brace. Unless they turn their whole body. I heard there’s sangria next door.
It’s good to be back.
