Koe gets best of Koe
Calm And Koe On read the shirt Fred Koe wore for the first time here Monday.
It wasn easy to keep calm in the fourth end when Jamie Koe of the Territories was facing six Kevin Koe Alberta rocks in the house and already down 4 1 after giving up four the previous end.
can cheer for one of them or the other, but, oh, yeah, on that one I was definitely saying a Gwich prayer for JamieJamie wholesale Dolphins cheap jerseys
to make that shot, said the father of the two.
It could have been 10 1 for Kevin if Jamie had flashed the shot like he did with his first rock in the end. But he made it. And Fred, who turns 67 here Saturday, could breathe again.
just want it to be a good game, said the man who had one cheek adorned with the red and gray of the Territories and the other with blue and yellow of Alberta, while wearing an Alberta jacket with polar bear sleeves and waving flags of both the NWT and Alberta.
And after six, with Alberta leading the Territories 5 3, it was a close game, as dad and sister Kerry sat together and mom sat separately.
not superstitious but we don take chances, laughed Fred of he and his wife.
This year edition of the bi ennial Brier Battle of the Brothers attraction ended up with Kevin winning 8 3 with the two brothers shaking hands after the eighth end.
Dad Fred taught the kids to curl and make ice when they grew up in Inuvik.
Fred, who was born and raised in Inuvik and recently returned there from Yellowknife to work with Gwich Tribal Council, says it a pricey proposition to watch his sons play each other and everybody else in the Brier.
It costs $3,000 each to fly to Edmonton return.
And then, of course, there the airfare from Edmonton to wherever we going for the event.
He flew from Inuvik to Edmonton to get to Whitehorse for the Territories playdowns this year.
had to make his last shot in his last three games to getget wholesale cheap Dolphins jerseys china
here. At the same time I was watching him, I was following Kevin in the Alberta playoffs by internet. He lost two right off the go and was down every end until he finally beat Kevin Martin out in that final. They were both nail biters. I was just glad this year this game was early in the week. first time it was Koe vs Koe at the Brier was in Draw 15 in 2010. Kevin won 8 3.
Two years later it was 11 3 withwith wholesale cheap Dolphins jerseys china
Kevin scoring three, stealing two and stealing three in a three end run and the brothers shaking hands after seven ends in Draw 12.
The two met again in the third vs fourth playoff game in that Brier with Kevin scoring a four ender in the eighth to win 10 6.
For Kerry, watching the two play here Monday was a bit of a different deal that the other years, she confessed.
She Jamie twin sister. And she cheered for her skip Jamie who she play with representing the Territories at the Canadian Mixed this year.
year I was more excited than nervous when I woke up thisthis cheap Dolphins jerseys china
morning. Two years ago, before the playoff game in Saskatoon, I was super nervous and had no idea who to cheer for.
I didn want to see Jamie drop to three losses because that means they are really going to have to get on a roll the rest of the week. I know Kevin will be fine. hard to tell if Jamie takes the loss harder or if Kevin takes the win harder.
sucks, not only to lose to them but to not even put up a fight, said Jamie. was a TV game against my brother and we just came up flat for whatever reason.
better prepared and they a better team and theythey wholesale Dolphins cheap jerseys
show that week in and week out, but it a one game thing, but we capable if we play our best. It still a fair battle, said Jamie, who doesn leave Yellowknife to curl on the circuit like his brother.
look forward to playing the top teams here. We not afraid to play them. We want to measure ourselves against the Albertas, Manitobas and Ontarios. Kevin it an ordeal.
absolutely glad to have that over. It never fun beating them. It the most emotional game I play. The rest of the teams out there you love beating up on them. This one you don get a lot of enjoyment out of it. If we beat up on Jeff Stoughton or whoever, I feel fine with it.
