TORONTO (July 9, 2014) – TSN confirmed today that beautiful Banff, Alta. will again play host to the networks annual All-Star Curling Skins Game – a fan-favourite curling event. The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre, located in Banff National Park and surrounded by the Canadian Rockies, will house TSNs annual curling skins game on January 16-18, 2015. “We are thrilled to welcome back TSN and the curling all-stars to the Town of Banff and The Fenlands,” said Karen Sorensen, Mayor, Town of Banff. “The high calibre of players and the excitement of the skins tournament make it a highlight of our winter festival. Were greatly looking forward to the 2015 event and the announcement of this years participants.” “We warmly welcome the return of elite-level curling to Banff National Park as a special addition to our SnowDays Festival, an annual celebration of Banffs historic love of winter,” adds Stuart Back, Interim CEO, Banff Lake Louise Tourism. “As a world-renowned destination for winter sports, Banff is a natural fit to again be the home of the All-Star Curling Skins Game and were proud to be the host of TSNs all-star event for the second year running.” “We are delighted to be returning to the Town of Banff and The Fenlands Banff Recreation Centre. The reception our all-star curlers received last year from The Town of Banff, the entire Bow Valley region, and curling fans across the country was extraordinary,” said Ian Charlton, Managing Director, TSN Events. “World elite curlers and this premier winter wonderland destination are the perfect pairing. Were excited to raise the bar yet again in 2015 and deliver a few new wrinkles and surprises for curling fans across the country.” Earlier this year, two-time world champion Jeff Stoughton and his all-star teammates defeated five-time TSN skins champion Kevin Martin to take home $70,500 in prize winnings at TSNs two-day all-star event that featured the Top 16 Canadian mens curlers, as voted by fans. http://www.thepersonalityshop.net/NBA/Custom-Los-Angeles-Lakers/ .

The 31-year-old Canadian international forward, currently in camp with the national team in Florida, is coming off a productive and unexpected season with Kerala Blasters FC that saw him named best player in the Hero Indian Super League. While rival teams boasted marquee players like Alessandro Del Piero, Nicolas Anelka, Robert Pires, David Trezeguet, Fredrik Ljungberg, Luis Garcia, Marco Materazzi, Mikael Sylvestre, Eric Djemba-Djemba and Jermaine Pennant, the lone big name on Keralas squad was former England goalie David James, who doubled as player-manager. Kerala made it all the way to the Dec. 20 league final despite low expectations We were one of the favourites to finish last, Hume said. Hume, in his first Canadian camp since a 3-0 friendly loss to Australia in London in September 2013, played 45 minutes in Fridays 2-1 loss to Iceland. The two teams meet again Monday in Orlando. Kerala finished fourth in the nine-team league with a 5-5-4 record but reached the inaugural final by defeating league-leading Chennaiyin FC 6-1 on aggregate in the two-game semifinal. Kerala held Atletico de Kolkata scoreless in the final, only to lose 1-0 on a stoppage-time goal. A disappointing finale but still a massive achievement for a club with one of the lowest payrolls in the league, according to Hume. If wed been offered getting to the finals and losing in the 94th minute, I think everyone would have taken that with open arms, Hume said. We exceeded a lot of peoples expectations, including ourselves. The final was watched by 57 million TV viewers with Hume awarded his individual trophy after the match. With the players that were in that league and to be a Canadian lad whos not played on the world stage, to get that award was a brilliant achievement for myself and something Ill look back on as one of the highlights of my career, Hume said. Hume arrived in mid-September for the Indian leagues inaugural season, which ran October through December. Located in southwest India, Kerala is known for its natural beauty and spices. Sadly Hume did not have much time to explore, with games almost every three days. But he speaks warmly about the Kerala fans. The smallest home crowd was 40,000 and he played before more than 75,000 in the home leg of the semifinal. Theyre football-mad, he said. In pre-season, Hume says the team could walk through a local mall without drawing attention. By the end, they couldnt set foot there without being surrounded. One of the highlights of his time in India was being able to meet legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, part-owner of the Kerala franchise. The best thing about him is how humble he is as a person. Hell sit down and talk with you, and talk sports, talk family, talk everything, said Hume. He also paid tribute to the managerial and playing skills of the 44-year-old James. Talks are underway to bring Hume back next season, when the campaign will be extended a month. I really really enjoyed myself out there, as most of the people who went out there did. So itss definitely something Ill think twice about.dddddddddddd If he returns, he hopes to bring his wife and two daughters, aged four and 11, with him this time. The initial offer to play in India came out of the blue and at the last minute, so it was not feasible to uproot his family. While he went to India with an open mind, he says the level of football there was better than I expected. Some of the Indian players had excellent technique and were physically on par. Tactically they were a little behind, he added. India is trying to remedy that, looking to improve grassroots coaching, he said. Standard of play in the pro league improved every week, he said. Out of contract for the first time in 15 years, he had hoped to continue his career in the United Kingdom. But the offers he got were either unsatisfactory or too far away from the family home in northwest England. Then suddenly he ended up on the other side of the world. I sat down and talked to my wife about it and talked to my family. And it was the right time, he said. It was an opportunity Id never have put in front of me. And it was only for three and a half months. He first heard of the Indian League from a freelance journalist who passed on a contact. Hume gave the number to his agent, not thinking anything would come from it, and within two weeks he had been drafted by Kerala. Just everything thrown at me at once. Im not normally one to go so unorganized or so off the cuff but Im over the moon I did. Born in Edinburgh to Scottish parents, Hume was raised in Canada and soon was making soccer waves back in the U.K. He worked his way through the youth ranks at Tranmere Rovers, becoming the English clubs youngest ever debutante at 16 years 167 days in an April 2000 game against Swindon. In 2003, he helped lead Canada on a fairy-tale run to the quarter-finals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates where he, along with midfielder Atiba Hutchinson, was named to the tournament all-star team. A 500,000-pound (C$900,000) move took him to Leicester City in 2005 before stops in Barnsley and Preston North End and loan spells with Doncaster Rovers and Fleetwood Town. Just five foot seven, Hume has always been a bundle of energy on the field. His patriotism has also been plain to see, via the Maple Leaf occasionally dyed into his hair in past years. Hume made headlines for painful reasons playing for Barnsley in November 8, 2008, when Hume, caught by an elbow from Sheffield Uniteds Chris Morgan as both went for a high ball, suffered a fractured skull with severe complications. There was a long recovery period, leaving Hume with a wicked horseshoe-shaped scar from his left ear to the front of his forehead. Humes time with the Canadian team has been limited in recent years. He attribute that to an influx of new talent and the difficulties of playing in lower-tier leagues where teams dont get international breaks. Teams and squads get picked and if Im not there, Im disappointed but understanding. And Im just looking forward to the next one. ... Im happy to be involved, Im happy to get another chance. ___ Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter China Jerseys ' ' '
