Sports Quick Hits: November 29th, 2021
🥌Curling: Canada’s Olympic curling teams are set. After a tight competition, women’s Team Jones and men’s Team Gushue — both Olympic gold medalists — will be representing the red and white in Beijing in February. Rock on.
🏈CFL: Round one = done. Playing at home, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats defeated the Montreal Alouettes 23–12 yesterday to advance to the East Division final against the Toronto Argonauts. Oskee wee wee.
- Meanwhile, in the West, the Saskatchewan Roughriders secured a wild three-point overtime win over the Calgary Stampeders to punch their ticket to the division finals against the Winnipeg Blue Bombers.
⚽Soccer: While MLS Playoff action continues, the CanWNT is also playing some soccer of their own — namely, international friendlies against Mexico. After a 2–1 loss on Saturday — shoutout to Jordyn Huitema (pronounced HIGH-tah-mah) for Canada’s goal — the teams will take the pitch again tomorrow at 5:30 p.m. ET. Time to bring our “eh” game.
⚾️MLB: While we were sad to see (now former) Toronto Blue Jays Gold Glove second baseman Marcus Semien sign with the Texas Rangers yesterday, the Jays’ own big move in signing All-Star pitcher Kevin Gausman helped to ease the pain.
