Saskatchewan Wins Scotties

On Sunday I found myself watching the championship final of the Scotties Tournament of Hearts between Saskatchewan's Amber Holland and Team Canada's Jennifer Jones. It was one of the best curling matches that I have watched in my life. Jones built up an early lead, but Holland played a magnificent 6th end to score 3 and tie the match. Team Canada had the hammer in a tie game in the last end and their last rock came in too heavy and rolled too far. As a very patriotic Canadian I will cheer for Team Canada by default, but after the 6th end I was cheering for Saskatchewan.

Congrats to Amber Holland for a great match. I'm not going to forget it anytime soon.
