ABM ? maybe who plays Manitoba in the final !

Remember that Manitoba now has World Champion Dennis Thiessen.

As important, he has been getting tutored by Joe Rea

If anything, Dennis is getting tutored by Jim. Jim is the brains of team Canada, not Joe.

Goodluck Manitoba and ignore the hater. Jealousy is the root of all evil.

Quebec
Saskatchewan
Manitoba

Dennis is only a world champ because he Rob Lamb got him on the team and then he road Armstrongs coat tail all the way.....if you watched...he pretty well sucked! Also MB won Kathy Kerr yes...but they had Larry from SK with them not Dennis.

If you check the stats for Worlds, Dennis was seventh for thirds.

Pretty unusual for a World Championship team.

That said, I am sure he learned a lot from Jim.

Further, Joe has not coached this team in years; just keeps getting credit for it, other, than of course, for last year without Jim.

Joe cannot improve on gold

At least Dennis has the sense to let Chris skip this time after his disastrous attempt at skipping last time.

It should also be interesting to see how he deals with Jim on the National team after all the insults he was saying about him after Jim's drug bust(s).

NO QUESTION CHRIS IS A BETTER CURLER THAN DENNIS HE JUST NEEDS TO LEARN HOW TO SUCK UP BETTER LIKE SOME OTHERS THEN HE MIGHT MAKE IT BACK ON TO TEAM CANADA

Anonymous said...

every comment except first question Talks or mentions Manitoba ? Sask is last years Champs * Other than Larry at RA where have they been ? They may just quietly roll in and WIN again ?

So it could be Man vs Sask Final

Chris wrote his own epitaph.

It seems he is the author of virtually all the poison that has been common knowledge for years regarding Team Manitoba.

I think its sad that all of Team Manitoba gets a bad name because of a select person(s)...and we know who they are. What about AlBERTA.... I think it might just be thier time to strike GOLD!!! I think it will be repeat of last yrs final SK vs AB. Good curling and good luck to ALL!!!
