I really know nothing about female curling, but I am sure you could easily make that argument.  She has won a ton of championships and has been successful for a long time.

I find curling super boring.  It?s not really even a sport.  Only time I ever watched was when Ron Burgundy showed up at MTS Centre.

So you're not a Jennifer Jones fan.....and also not a curling fan.

Personally, I'm not a Tom Brady fan, and I also don't like football.

I am not a big curling fan but really respect the game.  I've watched some Scotts and Briers before and was amazed at the strategy and planning that goes into every throw.

Sure but strategy and planning doesn?t automatically = sport. I put curling in the same category as golf, bowling and darts.

Well that's your opinion. It is by definition a sport. Not all of us like it but it is a sport. So nothing to really debate or argue here.

^ Agreed.

Have you tried curling? It looks really easy on TV but is actually much harder and can be quite strenuous in real life.

You ever notice how much alcohol is involved at the amatuer/local club levels of curling, golf, bowling, An darts.......it's crazy

I curled once in high school. It was super boring. Maybe the people sweeping get a little workout but the person tossing the rock gets none. I just don?t see it as a true sport. But I know it?s super popular here in Manitoba/Canada so I know my opinion won?t be popular.

Well, I really enjoy watching it. I consider it a sport.

Three Manitoba teams at the Scottie's this year. Way to go Manitoba women.

Curling not a sport? LMAO. And Bobsled is??????

The front end on a top end curling team are in better shape then most athletes.

Sport (British English) or sports (American English) includes all forms of competitive physical activity or games which through casual or organized participation, aim to use, maintain or improve physical ability and skills while providing enjoyment to participants, and in some cases, entertainment for spectators.

When Jennifer Jones decides to walk away from the game she will go down as one of the most decorated skips in the sport of Curling.

She is a super nice person, as are the members of her team. My friend used to be her fianc? and we used to have beers at the St. Vital often. I find it humorous when someone feels the need to slag curling when they have almost zero experience in the sport. To get to that level of curling it demands vast amounts of practice, dedication, and physical ability. To suggest it is not a sport is completely erroneous and somewhat ignorant. You don't have to like it, but why do people feel the need to minimize it just because it is not their cup of tea?

Well what can I say. 6 Canadian Championships. This one was without the great Kate. Nice win ladies.

Easily.

She will leave dynasty behind when she retires. Not sure if the rest of her rink will disband, but Canada women's curling is in good hands with Rachel Homan.


Title: Re: Jennifer Jones
Post by: Pigskin on February 22, 2018, 02:18:17 PM
Not so sure about that. The Homan team has to make it though the summer. Mite see a little line up change.


Title: Re: Jennifer Jones
Post by: BomberPride on February 22, 2018, 05:49:23 PM
To be honest, I doubt the line up changes. Plenty of teams have bad tournaments. Unfortunately for Team Homan, it came at the worst possible moment.


Title: Re: Jennifer Jones
Post by: Pigskin on February 25, 2018, 04:04:20 PM
Einarson, Sweeting, Birchard, Mueller. The new team in Manitoba. Carey is also looking for a new team.


Title: Re: Jennifer Jones
Post by: BomberPride on February 26, 2018, 12:29:33 PM
Einarson is no slouch.

Carey will likely stick with Alberta. She can't break out in Manitoba, especially now with Einarson coming up behind Jones.

And for many it's the only reason they play the sports...

At an amateur level. However sport for top teams or players in a serious business.

I'd love to get you on the course and watch you try to hit a ball. You'd miss embarrassingly and I'd laugh and laugh and laugh.
The only people who think golf isn't a sport are those who have never played.

Should Jennifer step back with Jill. Both didn't have a great playoff this weekend. Jennifer struggled to make shots when it counted. Or is the team just tired.
