Howard vs Peachy this morning.... 
Peachy's loss last night to Dacey allowed Russ to have another shot at the BC team in this morning's tiebreaker. BC beat NB 9-7 in yesterday's afternoon draw.

The winner faces Gushue in the 3-4 game this evenings match. The winner of that game faces the loser of this afternoon's 1-2 game between Ferbey and Dacey.

First off - did Peachy get his jacket from his big brother or Dad and if not, why is it about 4 sizes too large for him?

I think most will be cheering for Russ in the game this morning. He is one of the noisiest, err, most decorated skips the game has ever seen. It's a credit to his shotmaking and game calling that he continues to be in the hunt every year (I don't think he's ever had a losing record at the Brier) even though he doesn't quite have the one tool that has been so dominate in the game the past 5 to 10 years - the ability of the skip to throw the big, I mean really big, takeout weight.

I'll be cheering (and listening) for Russ - the Ontario roots? - I would be very interested in seeing a NL vs NB game tonight. Maybe it's the young - Gushue is 23/24? - vs the old. Russ shot 94% in their win againt NL earlier in the week.

First however, NB must beat the team they lost to yesterday when Howard shot 74% to Peachy's 89%.
