Nova Scotia Still Working Toward Brier

Jamie Murphy and his rink out of the Mayflower Curling Club look to earn a spot in the 2016 Brier

Jamie Murphy and his rink of Jordan Pinder, Scott Saccary, and Phil Crowell out the Mayflower Curling Club will look to take the first step in punching their ticket to the 2016 Tim Hortons Brier. Despite winning the provincial championship a month ago, the Nova Scotia rink must face the teams from Yukon, Northwest Territories (NWT) and Nunavut in a pre-tournament tournament. The winner gets a spot in the “official” Brier beginning on Saturday. Thankfully, this is the last year of this foolishness and hopefully Murphy will breeze through this farce.

The team from Nova Scotia first hit the ice tonight at 8:00 AT against the Yukon. Tomorrow they’ll face NWT at 8:30 and then Nunavut at 5:20. Unfortunately, even though all these teams won their provincial or territorial championship and didn’t automatically get entry into the NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP!!!, they also are not broadcast or even webcast, so no one can watch.

I’ll be following along online, likely twitter or some such, and rooting for the Bluenosers.
