It would be hard to have a better year in 2007 than Russ Howard had in 2006, wouldn’t it?
Word has it that Russ will play some with the Gushue team from Newfoundland in the coming season – but will also return to skip a team of his own based in New Brunswick. It does still semm strange looking back that Russ – the curler I have watched for years – is now an Olympic gold medalist. I would have never thunk it…
Also, a nice story about Russ posted at the Midland Curling Club website (you’ll need to scroll down). A welcome home party was held for Russ at the curling club here in Ontario he once called home. They also celebrated his brother Glenn’s spirited run at this year’s Brier. Good read.
