Curling Legends: Matt Baldwin Part 2
Host Kevin Palmer delivers part II of his conversation with the recently departed legend from Alberta, Matt Baldwin.
Topics cover the 1958 Brier in Victoria, where Alberta landed in a playoff against a young rink from Manitoba skipped by Terry Braunstein.
Baldwin also shares the disappointment of perhaps his best team, when in 1960 he teamed with Hec Gervais but didn’t reach the Brier. You’ll hear stories about Gervais, Garnett Campbell, Ernie Richardson and Matt’s confrontation with Paul Gowsell in the finals of the Vernon Carspiel.
Baldwin also tells stories from the 1971 “Blizzard Brier” in Quebec City and explains how to throw a party at the Chateau Frontenac.
And you’ll find out why Matt is the original “Hot Shot” of one-on-one curling.
