2019 Briar Finals: Alberta Vs. Alberta

As I type this, the first end has just concluded of the Finals of the 2019 Briar from Brandon, Manitoba. Team Alberta (Kevin Koe, Calgary) is facing off against Team Wildcard (Brendan Bottcher, Edmonton) in a match that I'm sure will confuse the hell out of the Americans. If Bottcher wins it will be the first time a Wild Card wins the Briar.

Most critically, the winner of this match gets to be Team Canada at the upcoming World's Mens Curling Championships in Lethbridge later on this month.
