2008 Brier - 9th end - Alberta 4, Ontario 4

OK Tim Horton's ad, Purolator ad (classier, perhaps than Strauss herbal remedies - but recall that Purolator is Canada Post). Then Robaxacet - not far from the herbal stuff. And then Idomo. Very interesting who CBC get to advertise in prime time. Aha - another one - TENA - I don't want to know what that product is. Bespeaks an interesting demographic.

Mounties ornamentally dressed bring out the Brier tankard.

Woo-hoo - they actually show the first rock.!

Alberta put it where planned, right on the button. Ontario toss up a right corner guard. Alberta throw a rock away. Ontario put a rock on the t-line behind their guard. Alberta peel the guard.

Ontario replace the guard. Alberta peel it. Lather, rinse, repeat.

Lather, rinse, repeat.

Ontario now split the house - 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock both at the edge of the 8-foot.

Martin hits the 9 o'clock rock and rolls into the 4-foot at around 9 o'clock.

Howard has to roll away on this shot at Martin's rock, but rolls into the button just in front of the T-line. Martin has a shot at doubling the Ontario rocks out.

Martin nose hits and Howard has a hit for 2 to go to the 10th tied 4-4. No guarantee tonight! He makes the shot. First Ontario deuce tonight.
