The 2008 Tim Hortons Brier , Canada's men's curling championship, was held from March 8 to 16 at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. [1] Skipped by Kevin Martin, Alberta defeated the defending champion, and reigning World Champion Glenn Howard and Team Ontario. The final pitted arguably the top 2 teams in the world, at least the top 2 teams in the World Curling Tour. The final, while close, failed to live up to expectations, and was widely considered boring, and was full of mistakes due to ice problems. Martin had a draw to the button in the tenth end to win the game.
