Olympian vs Olympian

by Matt Hames

RAMA – This Casino Rama Skins Game features one member from each of the last four Canadian Olympic teams. Martin in 1992 (demonstration – we have to say that, apparently)... Richard Hart in 1998... Martin again in 2002 (real, this time)... and of course, the gold medal winner from 2006, Brad Gushue.

The latter, of course, is still without Russ.

Tonight’s matchup is between the last two. It’s Gushue versus Martin. And yes, Gushue has already talked about looking forward to playing Middaugh at some point this weekend. To win though, he’ll have to play a great game.

The Edmonton boys have been outstanding this year. They can draw, they can sweep and they can mash. At The Curling News, our money is on Martin (this is all about money, isn’t it?). But let’s see what Gushue can do to back up his Play Middaugh line.
