Rylan Kleiter

#BetweenTheSheets with Rylan Kleiter
"Do you wanna play video games?"

The #TwineTime blog has developed a rich history of adding champions into the #TwineTimeFam. We have Grand Slam of Curling champions. We have Canadian junior curling championships. We have U-SPORT champions. We have world champions. We have Olympic champions. We have world junior champions. We have provincial and territorial champions. We have mixed doubles champions.

Well time to add another champion to the list folks, another World Junior Curling champion!

Welcome to the fam Rylan Kleiter.

But don't think the recent world championship win has gone to the young man's head folks. Sometimes you just want to kick back, text a buddy and ask "Do you wanna play video games?"

#CMDCC2019 Preview

#BetweenTheSheets: The Frenzy in Fredericton
Canada's best duos head to New Brunswick chasing a national title

March Madness continues folks. We have the World Women's Curling Championship underway in Denmark right now. And this week the madness on ice continues back in Canada as we get set to crown our next #TeamCanada, this time in the discipline of mixed doubles.

32 teams have qualified for the #CMDCC2019 and will compete for the right to represent Canada at the upcoming World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in Norway next month. Can our defending champs successfully #DefendTheIce? Could past champions emerge to reclaim the throne? Or could we see a #TeamUpset duo surprise the field and snatch the gold?

Get ready for the Frenzy in Fredericton! And always remember the theme for mixed doubles: #NoLeadIsSafe.

#WWCC2019 Preview

#BetweenTheSheets: The Skirmish in Silkeborg
Top women's curling teams battle for world supremacy in Denmark

The #MarchMadess continues rock heads!

No I don't mean the preparation for the upcoming NCAA basketball tournament (although this blog is a HUGE fan of that event as well). We are talking about the world championship excitement on the ice every March.

March is the penultimate month to the curling season. March is world championship month. Last week we crowned new world wheelchair curling champions. This week we prepare for the women's world championship in Silkeborg. And we end the month with the start of our men's world championship in Lethbridge, Alberta.

March is curling madness!!

#PowerRankings W25

#BetweenTheSheets: Weekend Runback
Bye bye #Brier2019 & #WWhCC2019 + NEW Power Rankings

What a weekend! Who was sweating more this weekend? Alberta curling fans? Ben Hebert from sweeping? B.J. Neufeld from watching the time clock tick, tick, tick away with his skipper in the hack? I would not want to be doing the laundry for those boys Monday morning.

We can probably safely assume the only one not sweating was our 2019 Brier champion skip Kevin Koe, who appears calm, cool and collected all game regardless of shot difficulty or time constraints. Besides time is relative right?

What it is time for though is a little #TwineTime runback of the hot topics from this past week of curling action. We have the Brier to discuss but also crowning a new world champ at the World Wheelchair Curling Championship. AND finally some new (and debut) Power Rankings!!

#Brier2019 Midterm Grades

#BetweenTheSheets: Making The Grade In Brandon
Big Red returns to fill out the midterm report card


My trusty friend Big Red returns to hold those accountable for their actions and reward the good while scolding the bad. Some teams are making the grade. Some are just doing the bare minimum to avoid failure. And some, one in particular, is on the downward slide towards failing. There is no bell curve in place here folks. Your actions and results on the ice speak for themselves.

It is report card time at the 2019 Brier and this blog is ready to do some grading.
