So proud of you guys, especially to bounce back with all that pressure and defeat two strong teams to get to the final. So best of luck in your last game, for a gold medal, and whatever happens, know that we love watching you and that you've won our hearts!

Right on Guys.
Have not missed a game yet, and I can't wait for Sun night. We're having a World Curling Championship Party at my house. I even put the Maple Leafs on hold last night while I watched your decisive win.
The whole Soo is cheering for you. You are winners regardless of what happens tonight - CHAMPS!

Wonderful to see the professionalism of this team in the Briar and now in the Worlds. Great representatives of the North and of the Sault. Makes one proud.
Best of luck now and in the future.

First I'd like to congratulate the boys on a fantastic accomplishment and we are so very proud of them and how they've represented themselves as well as our city and country.
But,there really should be a parade for the Jacobs Rink on the way to the Essar Center, OMG please city councillors I'm sure you could at least arrange that for them!!!! They have represented this city amazingly, let's show them a little more than dignitaries speaking to make themselves look good!! PLEASE DO A LOT MORE FOR THE TEAM THAT HAS DONE ALOT FOR THIS CITY AND COUNTRY, let's not embarrass ourselves the country will be watching!!

Please block this GIXXER @ssshole.

All he does is try to stir up crap and piss people off.

This guy is the bane of Sault Ste. Marie citizens and he can take his crotch-rocket and ride off into the sunset for all I care.
