Honestysucks: icemantbi just made a statement why do you slam him/her, both teams made great accomplishments and they both deserve congrats as they both represented the SSM with pride, congrats Team Jacobs and Go Hounds Go,

Also I am not a leafs fan but what team do you play for.

go Team Jacobs! i haven't watched curling a day in my life never understood it but this week i actually watched it here and there. i even turned my tv on to the curling when they were playing while i did things in the house so i could see the score!! but tonight while i was doing christmas baking it was like a big thing i never felt so proud to be from sault ste marie till now! i am so glad to finally see sault ste marie being made proud! Olympics here we come!!!
Honestysucks 12/9/2013 1:59:47 AM Report

maybe the city will now update the "home of sign" and add team Jacobs on it! like they should have last year when they won the brier!
Hinkle 12/9/2013 12:47:43 PM Report

Way to go fellas. Awesome performance from an awesome team.
Maybe we don't need an Ontario team just a Northern Ontario team. I wonder how Mr. Howard still feels toward the good old Northern folks!!!
Best of luck in Russia, bring it on home.
