THE CURLING SHOW:
Brad Gushue, 2014 Pinty’s...
With Mark Nichols back throwing third stones, Team Gushue captured the first event in the Grand Slam of Curling series on Sportsnet by defeating the red-hot Team McEwen in a final game that featured back-to-back four-enders. I talked to Brad shortly after this win. You can find out more about Team Gushue here. You can find out more about how Newfoundland affected John Carter Cash here. (You'll understand if you listen to the entire interview.)

Rauter, Moore and Turnbull at Vancouver 2010 (TSN photo) After a 25-year-career, Linda Moore has retired, effective immediately, from TSN curling broadcasts in Canada. The network made the announcement today, citing “a chronic health condition.” However, Linda wants the curling world to know... she's okay! “I have what's called benign fasciculation syndrome,” Moore told The Curling News from her home in Vancouver. “It's a neurological...

European Curling Championship Roundup...
A Event Women:It's funny. Of all the teams participating, I'd probably have taken Switzerland fourth or fifth, and this is the same Binia Feltscher team that won the world championship. The last team that won worlds and the ECC in the same calendar year was Anette Norberg in 2005, so that's pretty great company.Russia took silver, which is probably a disappointment for the 2012 ECC champions led by Anna Sidorova, but they've earned to be among Europe's best for the last few years, and are young enough to stay there for much longer.Scotland took third place, but I feel like anything involving Eve Muirhead tabs her her as a favorite, anything but the championship game is a disappointment. They also dropped a puzzling game to Estonia of all teams, then was eliminated in the 3-4 game by Denmark,...

CURLING HISTORY:
Henrietta Gilmour: Pioneer Woman...
by Bob CowanThe photo above can be found in the magazine Hearth and Home of March 14, 1895. It depicts four women on the ice, and is probably the earliest published photograph of women curling in Scotland. The skip is Henrietta Gilmour - that's her, second from the right. Note the long handled brooms the women are using, with their crook tops. It cannot have been easy to curl wearing the dress of the time! It would appear that fashionable headgear was de rigueur. What shoes were they wearing? The stones are just a little lighter than used by the men, at 31 to 34 lbs, according to the Hearth and Home article. Note the wooden tee-marker at the centre of the rings scratched on the ice. Hearth and Home was a weekly broadsheet magazine, for women, published in London from 1891-1914. A short...
OTTAWA CITIZEN:
Homan rink books spot in the Canada...
Rachel Homan's Ottawa rink booked its spot in the Home Hardware Canada Cup final in convincing fashion on Friday night at Camrose, Alta. Homan, after suffering her first loss of the week, 8-3 to Sherry Anderson of Saskatoon in the eighth draw during the afternoon, came out in the late draw and scored three in the sixth end on the way to a 9-4 victory over Olympic champion Jennifer Jones of Winnipeg. Homan, after falling behind 4-0 after two ends, stole five of six ends to eliminate Jones from the playoff picture. With the victory, Homan finished the round robin in top spot with a 5-1 record. Heather Nedohin of Sherwood, Park, Alta., and Val Sweeting of Edmonton tied for second spot at 4-2 and will play the semifinal on Saturday afternoon for the right to take on Homan Sunday. Nedohin...

Kevin Koe, Jeff Stoughton advance...
Kevin Koe stole a point in both the seventh and eighth ends to defeat Saskatoon's Kevin Marsh 9-7 on Sunday night in the quarter-finals of the Direct Horizontal Drilling Fall Classic at the Crestwood Curling Club. Koe, whose new Calgary-based team of Marc Kennedy, Brent Laing and Ben Hebert has an 8-2 record this season, plays Aaron Sluchinski of Airdrie in Monday's 10 a.m. semifinals. Sluchinski trounced Matthew Blandford of Cold Lake 8-2 in only six ends in their quarter-final game. Meanwhile, Winnipeg's Jeff Stoughton whipped Jamie King of St. Albert 10-4 in six ends while Saskatoon's Steve Laycock doubled up Brendan Bottcher of the Saville Centre 6-3. Koe, Stoughton and Laycock all have perfect 4-0 records this weekend. The final is set for 2 p.m. Monday. At the Curlers Corner Autumn Gold...
