From 6′ 5″ Team SK Fifth Gerry Adam:
Well we had a long busy day today starting off with an early breakfast. We played at 830 on TSN against N.B. Start of the game was very interesting with the opposition skip having a runback for six but we escaped with a steal of one. After that we picked up ourselves and played better and finished off the game with a big steal of three in 8.
Shortly there after we had a sub and off to the Purple Heart Lounge for our autograph session with Team Alberta. It was short and sweet and we were in and out in a half an hour. After that everybody went their separate ways for much needed rest before we met up again at Ye Ole Spaghetti Factory for supper.
We knew tonight would be a packed house and to start the opening ceremonies the CFL champions Calgary Stampedes lead us out on to the ice. Our sign carrier was 6’6 and 300+ pounds…..Just a little bit bigger than I am. Quebec came out on fire against us in the first end and scored two points and two more in the third end to go up 4-1. In the Fourth end the boys battled and Steve made a great cross house double for two points to get us back into the game. We stole one in 9 to tie it 5-5 and J.M. made a great shot in the tenth for the win.
Back to the hotel for day end meeting to talk about our big day tomorrow! We play the undefeated Northern Ontario and P.E.I. in the evening. Right in the hunt and still tied for second. Looking forward to have many Saskatchewan fans cheering hard and loud to finish off the round robin. Good Night and talk tomorrow!!!”
