The 2018 Tim Hortons Brier is in the books. When the final rock came to a stop on the button Sunday evening Canada rejoiced. Yes, Team Canada I mean as Team Gushue successfully defended their Brier championship from a year ago and will now attempt to win back to back world championships in Las Vegas in April.
But the Team Canada fans were not the only one's celebrating. All of Canada should be celebrating. Curling fans were treated to a great event over the 10 days of competition....from the Hot Shots and Wildcard play-in game to the Championship Final. There were moments of greatness. There were moments of sadness. There were moments of frustration. There were moments of high energy excitement. The Brier truly offered something for everyone, new and old fans alike. Heck I even had a fan from Sydney, Australia watch a game online and engage on social media with questions and noted his new found love for the sport. How cool is that?
The #TwineTime blog enjoyed the entire time in Regina. From the action on the ice to the fun in the patch to the time spent watching my brother start to fully enjoy curling, a great time was had. Lets start by thanking Curling Canada for once again accepting this blog into the media bench family once again. I continue to be humbled and thankful for every opportunity and experience!
But it cannot always be a love affair right? Hits and misses occur every event...and not just in the shots taking place on the ice. With #TwineTime having a front row seat to the action all week there were quite a few notes made in preparation of the wrap-up blog post.
