"Queen of Hearts"

I knew it.

There was a noticeable change in the play of the Manitoba foursome on Tuesday. All of a sudden they were curling with confidence, something they hadn’t been able to find before Tuesday, when they were sitting 3-4 – in danger of not making the Scott Tournament of Heart finals.

For a team that was pegged as pre-tournament favourites, that 3-4 mark was rather surprising.

But it all came together in the end (no pun intended).

On Saturday night I said Jennifer Jones and company would win, and I was right. After 7 straight wins, they weren’t about to lose another one.

The difference in the game? The obvious answer is the final shot. But that wasn’t it. It was the odd misfires by Alberta third Amy Nixon and a few brushing miscues by Alberta’s front two that allowed Manitoba to pull ahead and stay there, while Manitoba curled essentially error-free.

Was it a boring final? The first eight ends or so definitely were. But the 10th end made up for it all.

But who cares? Jennifer Jones is on top of the Canadian curling world once again.

Hate to say it, but: I told you so.
