2008 Brier - 6th End; Alberta 4 , Ontario 2
As Alan says, Thank heaven the CBC has Mike Harris. His insight is a valuable addition to the telecast.
What's with the broken broom on the side? Did I miss something? Do you think Cathy Gautier of TSN would have told us?
More sparring in the 6th end, but not involving guards (due, according to Joan McCusker, to some missed shots by Savill, the Ontario lead), which makes the play both different and uneasy.
A recent commenter objected to my anti-CBC bias, but to have the CBC interupt so much with their promos and interviews is a real pain.
I'm not super knowledgeable about strategy, but I wondered why Howard didn't try the freeze with his first rock.... but even with a reasonably close freeze, Martin was able to knock the stones of the ice, setting up a blank possibility. But an uncharacteristic semi-miss by Martin as his hammer didn't roll out, leaving Alberta scoring one.
