2015 Canadian Mixed (North Bay)
February 1, 2016

Another weekend of provincial and territorial playdowns across the country resulted in some very familiar faces (see you in Ottawa, Brad Gushue) booking their tickets to the 2016 Scotties Tournament of Hearts in Grande Prairie, Alta., and the 2016 Tim Hortons Brier in Ottawa.

Curling fans everywhere were glued to their televisions last weekend as provincial finals wrapped up across the country. In every region, it seemed a tested veteran reached the final as the favourite, and in most provinces they were defeated. As everyone tries to wrap their heads around the upsets, we look forward to doing it all over again this weekend, as several more provinces will be hosting their championships.

When the world’s best curling teams all play each other in a major competition, it’s anything but guaranteed that the No. 1 seeds will win the event. Sure, it happens, but it’s just as likely that a No. 2, 3 or a 6 could get hot that weekend, and knock off the top squad en route to a championship.

New season. Different Team. Same story. One year ago, the curling world was marvelling at the run that Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen was on to start his season. His team was winning practically every event it played in, and rarely lost a game along the way. And while Team McEwen is still the World Curling Tour No. 1, having won two of its first three events this season, Brad Gushue’s incredible start has got his St. John’s foursome in striking distance of the top spot.

This time last year, Mike McEwen (Winnipeg) was running away with the lead on the Canadian Team Ranking System leaderboard, winning all but one of his first seven events. The one he didn’t win was won by Brad Gushue (St. John’s), who is starting this season like McEwen did last year.

For a while, it looked like Rachel Homan was going to win her second straight bonspiel without losing a game. Unfortunately for the Ottawa skip, and her team of Emma Miskew, Joanne Courtney and Lisa Weagle, their season-opening win streak ended at 13. A come-from-behind win by Switzerland’s Silvana Tirinzoni stole the Grand Slam of Curling’s Tour Challenge championship, and the $21,000 pay day.

Some teams are playing the last event with an old lineup (Penetanguishene, Ont.’s Glenn Howard). And other teams are just playing their last event (Winnipeg’s Jeff Stoughton)… for now.
