5 photos of Team Jacobs' welcome home

Wednesday, March 13, 2013   by: SooToday.com Staff

Team Jacobs brought the Tim Horton's Brier home last night as promised.

Among the dignitaries to welcome the first rink to win the Brier for Northern Ontario since 1985 were Sault MP Bryan Hayes, Mayor Debbie Amaroso and Jo-Anne Brooks from Eazy Express (shown).

Skip Brad Jacobs, lead Ryan Harnden, second E.J. Harnden and third Ryan Fry pulled off the stellar win on Monday and, on Tuesday, the Sault curling rink on Anita Boulevard was ablaze with red and white and Canadian flags to congratulate them.

"2013 Tim Horton's Brier Champs - What an amazing feeling - thank you everyone for your amazing support, we are very lucky to have so many great people that support us every step of the way - this win proves that when you work hard, you make sacrifices and you believe in yourself, you can achieve anything - We will wear the Maple Leaf with pride and ensure the World Championship trophy stays in Canada!," said the team Facebook page on Monday.

Tuesday it was further updated.

"Just to clarify - when we said "ensure" what we meant was we will do our best to make sure the World Championship trophy stays in Canada :) - Thank you again everyone for the unbelievable support - What makes this so special is not just how much this win meant to us, but also how much it meant to so many other people - wow what a feeling - taking the week off from the ice and then preparation begins this coming Sunday until we leave!"

Team Brad Jacobs will next represent Canada at the Ford World Men’s Curling Championship from March 30 to April 7.

theprotector... really? Did you mistake salt for sugar in your morning coffee? Can't you just be happy for the Jacobs rink?

Besides which, what's wrong with our MP being on hand to congratulate them on behalf of his constituents and the government?

Congratulations on a job well done. Those boys probably weren't that concerned about the dignitaries attending.

Congrats to Northern Ontario, you made your city proud of you. Terry Jones from the Edmonton Sun along with Jon Mead a Manitoba Team curler named the 2013 Tim Horton's Brier the "Bizarre Brier of 2013", they thought that a non-province team like NO should not have been at the Brier and the talk of getting rid of non province teams a couple of years ago, I guess Jon Mead and his Manitoba Team could not swallow defeat as men. Well it seemed the other provinces thought NO should have just showed up at the Brier and not win how sad is that. The Jacob's Rink showed Canada that they were determined as they prepared, sacrificed and worked hard to capture the 2013 Canadian Mens Curling Championship again congratulations and good luck at the World's, if you win I wonder what Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun will write, he is another poor loser because the Alberta Rink didn't make it to the Brier playoffs.

Maybe the Edmonton Sun Publisher, if they have one, could tell Terry Jones to do his homework. Jacobs has been to the Brier four times and is highly regarded in the curling world, especially in Canada, well before the win this year.
