  • Battling Brier Bids: Sault Ste Marie and St. John's both want the 2017 championship

    Maybe they should have Team Jacobs and Team Gushue decide the matter on the ice at this year's Brier, in Calgary.

    Not that their game on March 5th won't be a spicy meatball as it is.

    If you added hosting the 2017 Brier to the stakes, that would make for one heck of a Thursday morning draw.

    First, 2006 Olympic gold medalist and 12 time Brier participant, Brad Gushue, made his intentions known. He wants the 2017 Brier to be staged in his home province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Specifically, in St. John's. 

    Now, 2014 Olympic gold medalist and 2013 Brier champion Brad Jacobs has launched his own campaign(along with his teammates) to get the 2017 event to his hometown of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.

    Both of the bids have the blessing and support of the municipalities, neither of which has hosted a Brier in a long, long, long time.

    When last The Soo hosted, it was 1990. You go even farther back - much farther back - to find the last time St. John's was the host. That would be 1972.
