Gushue goes for the money
The Brad Gushue rink, with P.E.I. native Brett Gallant at second, will battle in the $100,000 Pinty’s all-star curling skins game today through Sunday in Banff, Alta. Gushue’s Newfoundland and Labrador rink takes on twotime defending Brier champion Pat Simmons in one semifinal, while the other sees Olympic and defending champion Brad Jacobs tangle with Mike McEwen in a rematch of last year’s semi. On the women’s side, last year’s winner Rachel Homan and Val Sweeting play in one semifinal, while young gun Kelsey Rocque and Olympic gold-medallist Jennifer Jones tussle in the other. Both finals are Sunday. TSN will broadcast all games.
