Monday morning Brier thoughts

From our Monday moaning mind...

Hats off to you
We haven't been watching curling for a long time, so we don't know if this is a recent phenomenon or not in men's curling, but what's the deal with curlers (mostly younger curlers) wearing ball caps and bandanas when they're playing?
We consider ourselves kinda hip, so we kinda sound like a grump old man when we say this, but we're not sure we like it. It just looks sloppy....
Now if we could get a team to wear tams or fedoras, well that might be acceptable, but a blue bandana makes you look like an extra from a gritty Michael Jackson video.

Get your rocks off
Am I the only one who kinda likes the fact that curlers are having a hard adjusting to the new curling stones?
First, a little controversy kinda spices things up.
Second, I kinda like the unknown. You never know what's going to happen. Instead of missing a draw by a foot, these guys are missing them by six feet. Makes for interesting play.

Feature game
TSN will feature Northern Ontario (3-0) versus Alberta (1-2) in the afternoon draw. A good chance for Northern Ontario to show that they are for real.
A third loss for Kevin Martin's crew and they are in a deep hole.

Tick shot
I am behind on my curling terminology,  can we all agree that the tick shot should now be called the Weagle?
