Like Alan, I've been enjoying today's curling
I must say, the missed shots by Morris and the miss by Martin at the end of the 5th looked bad by comparison with the shots from the Howard rink, but both teams have made some terrific shots, and the score is not too lopsided (yet).
6th End: Do you think that shot at the back of the rings is out? I do, but it must be hard for the curlers to know for sure.
There seems to be a lot, a LOT, of swing to the ice when the shots are draw weight. But much, MUCH less when they throw demolition weight.
So Martin gets a hit-and-stick and it's for just one.
After 6 (of only 8) ends, Howard 5, Martin 4, and Howard has the hammer.
