Episode 2 - Terry Braunstein

Terry Braunstein has the unique distinction of a rule being named after him.  Until recently (2015), the "Braunstein Rule" prohibited junior teams of high school ages from competing in mens and womens Tankard playdowns.  Terry, along with brother Ron, Ray Turnbull and Jack Van Hellemond surprised the Manitoba and Canadian curling elite by qualifying for the Brier and then making it into a final game playoff against Matt Baldwin in 1958.  In 1965 Terry would return with Ron, Ray and Don Duguid as vice and win the Brier but fall short in the World Championship (then known as the Scotch Cup). 
Terry shares stories of his early days throwing irregular sized stones on natural ice, to his Brier experiences and his thoughts on the modern game.
For more information on Curling Legend Terry Braunstein, find a copy of Sean Grassie's "King of the Rings" , "The Stone Age" by Vera Pezer and "The Brier" by Bob Weeks.  You can also catch highlights from the 1958 and 1965 Brier on YouTube.
