So proud of these guys!! Congratulations!!

Thank you for posting this. I really wanted to watch the medal ceremony but was unable to find it. I feel our team captured the hearts of a lot of Canadians. These 4 men put the Sault on the world map. I loved all the enthusiastic fans that showed up for the medal ceremony. How can you not like these guys? They have accomplished so much in the past year and a half. So unfortunate the some narrow mined people do not see this. Open up your mind - you really are missing out on a lot.

What do you mean about narrow minded? Did I miss something? I have not heard one bad thing about team Jacobs and couldn't be happier!!

Well done, we are in Florida and have had a great time bragging about our "boys"
You have put us on the map
Unfortunately the video will not play out of the country, maybe Sootoday can use another format for us--we so want to see the presentation

Does anyone know when the team will arrive at the Soo airport? I so want to be there.

It might be on youtube not sure tho.

Johnedater, not everyone in Sault Ste. Marie is a curling fan.
tba 2/22/2014 9:47:36 PM Report

Just imagine honour these curlers ,the city could erect a pair of crossed stainless steel curling brooms,protruding from a
stainless steel curling stone, and erect it next to the crossed s.s. hockey sticks "honouring" the Esposito Bros.,who brought so much continuous fame for Sault Ste. Marie, over several decades!

Said with tongue in cheek!

I also missed the awarding of the medals for Team Jacobs and am also thankful that soo today posted it.
llavergne 2/22/2014 10:58:49 PM Report

So very proud of these guys. What an amazing accomplishment! Can't wait for the Sault's party when they come home.
tweeker 2/22/2014 11:06:44 PM Report

Lone24...who cares if you're a curling fan or not. How often does this city have anyone even make it to the Olympics, let alone win a gold medal?? I dont like, under water basket weaving either, but if there was a kid from this city in it...I'd be cheering for them!! Woohoo, Team Jacobs

Doesn't matter where you live in this country.But when great moments like this come from people of the same city you were raised in it is touching.

And you make my wife & i homesick for the soo. 'SAULT STE MARIE ROCKS"
Tag33&1/3rd 2/23/2014 12:11:53 AM Report

They made me a curling fan! I didn't know s#*% about it before!
jimbobdog1 2/23/2014 6:27:43 AM Report

I sent this along to my sister in Florida. Unfortunately, they were unable to view it. A message comes up that says this video is unavailable in your country. She also tried directly on Soo Today to view it and was still unable to do so.

The best achievement by any sooiet ever!
