The Glenn Howard rink has lost a key member - it is the RIGHT thing for the player to go join his wife, giving birth; but WHAT timing!
After two ends Middaugh has a 2-1 lead.
UPDATE: This is proving no farce. Both teams tied after 5!
UPDATE: Middaugh misses an important double in the sixth end. 6-3 Howard now.
UPDATE: 6-5 Howard after 7 ends.
UPDATE: Bad miscue from Middaugh in the 8th - now Howard leading 8-5.
UPDATE: 9-5 Howard after 9 - counting the rocks down now.
UPDATE: It is over. Glenn Howard NEVER had to throw his final rocks in the whole tournament. Stunning.
