The three-month curling journey inside the Calgary bubble has finally crossed the finish line. Let’s take a look at some of the most memorable moments and storylines from the Calgary bubble.
Brendan Bottcher won curling's version of the Battle of Alberta on Sunday night at the Canadian men's curling championship.
Alberta's Brendan Bottcher hit a game-winning angle raise for a 6-5 win over Saskatchewan's Matt Dunstone in Sunday's semifinal at the Canadian men's curling championship. Bottcher removed the Saskatchewan stone from the button with his final throw and stuck around to score two points for the victory.
So far, the top story of this year’s Tim Hortons Brier hasn’t been defending champion Brad Gushue going for a fourth Brier Tankard in five years or Kevin Koe looking to capture a record fifth Canadian title. All everybody wants to talk about 53-year-old Wayne Middaugh, who has turned back the clock this week and is in the thick of things in his first Brier appearance since 2013.
For the first time in a long time, “Jimmy the Kid” has New Brunswick in the hunt at the Tim Hortons Brier.
It was a triumphant return to the 2021 Tim Hortons Brier for Wayne Middaugh. With Glenn Howard ailing, Middaugh led Howard's Wildcard 3 team to a 9-5 win over Gregory Skauge of Northwest Territories in the opening game of the tournament for both rinks Saturday.
Some of the top men's curling teams in the country returned to the ice after a long absence Friday as the Tim Hortons Brier kicked off in a bubble setting at the Markin MacPhail Centre.
Curling Canada has decided to use the national ranking system as its selection criteria for the final wild-card berths at the Scotties Tournament of Hearts and Tim Hortons Brier.
There was a clear but unusual path for three Alberta-based teams to play in the Tim Hortons Brier this season. Curling Alberta made a difficult choice that will send two rinks to the Calgary event and leave that third team on the outside looking in.
The weekend did little to settle the uneasiness that executive director Bobby Ray was feeling after the Northern Ontario Curling Association cancelled its playdowns and announced it would invite last season's winners to compete at the national championships in the Calgary bubble.
The Scotties Tournament of Hearts and Tim Hortons Brier are set to take place inside the Calgary bubble in early 2021, but first they have to figure out which teams will be playing.
