Even better than Burgundy

  • Print

So much time and effort went into tracking the antics of Ron Burgundy on Dec. 1 at the Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings that amid all the excitement a classy moment was missed.

At the end of the men's match between Team Stoughton and Team Jacobs, my eight-year-old son went down to the ice to see if he could get skip Jeff Stoughton to autograph his poster. As Stoughton signed the poster and posed for a photo to commemorate the moment, he asked my son if he was a curler. With great pride, my son responded that he was.

Stoughton proceeded to ask if he needed a broom and then gave him his game-used broom. Words cannot capture the look of pure pride and joy that came across his face as he raced back to his seat with a rare piece of curling history gripped in his hands.

That single gesture has likely made a lifelong curler and curling fan out of my son. It also gave him a memory he will never forget. Stoughton is indeed a class act, and Manitobans could not ask for a better representative.
