2008 Brier Final - 2nd End; Alberta 1, Ontario 0

Straight Ice? Several shots by both teams were straighter than the curlers expected. And having misread the ice, they are (as Mike Harris says) not trusting the ice or their judgement as much as they might.

More sparring, leaving Martin with a chance for two after Howard missed a runback. Howard then doubles off Martin's rocks, forcing Martin to hit and roll out to try to blank the end, but his shooter jammed on a rock out of the rings to barely stay on the rings, leaving Alberta up 1-0.

I agree with Mike Harris's (?) comment: why did Martin throw that turn and try to hit the rock on that side?

(query: was Morris trying to distract the Ontario team or is he hyperactive?)
