There wasn’t a lot of expectation for the NB team to be successful at the Nationals this year. Or any year for that matter. We just can’t seem to compete with other provincial representatives. We like to blame it on the fact that we don’t curl together regularly and some only taking to the ice for the provincial play downs. Of course, as much as we hate to admit it, it seems that other provincial teams are in the same boat. You’d never know it to see them play.
I certainly don’t mind losing, especially when we arrived knowing full well that that would be exactly what we’d do in the majority of games. But here we are on day 4 and it’s getting hard on the head. Maybe I just need a bit more retail therapy. That’s always good to cure what ails ya.
And yes...we curled 2 games today...and yes, we lost them both...painfully...
Nowhere to go but up!
