TSN to show ALTA-ONT morning clash

by Jill Officer

WINNIPEG – After much discussion about how the two tops teams here this week are scheduled to play a morning draw, TSN has decided to add a broadcast to their line-up tomorrow by broadcasting the biggest match-up of the round robin.

The broadcaster will feature Ontario’s Glenn Howard against Alberta’s Kevin Martin – a match-up that many think will also be the Brier final on Sunday. Good move on TSN’s part for TV numbers, but many businesses and companies across the country could be short-staffed tomorrow morning as people may choose to stay home and watch the big game.

Know what else this means (we hope)? New TSN commentator Russ Howard will finally get to criticize his little brother before some 300,000 viewers (including the CBC webcast). Or exhort him to victory.

Or, more likely, something in between.
