RAMA – Things change really, really fast in the Casino Rama Skins Game. Yesterday we opined that Wayne Middaugh might miss an out-turn peel one out of 100 times.
Make that two out of 100. Wayne flashes an out-turn peel in the sixth end for a gimme skin for Martin. From then on in, the Ontario team struggled to even score.
It got ugly. If this was a boxing match, they would have stopped it. Opponent Kevin Martin threw guards on his last rock in seven and his last rock in eight. Polar opposite of the desperation heaters he was hurling in the first half.
And these were guards on guards.
So Martin plays about as badly as a team can possibly play to win a Skins championship. He takes a grand total of $61,000 and owns bragging rights over Middaugh for another year.
Couples finishes second is the headline on the golfer’s website. Here, you can replace that name with Middaugh.
Cheesy winner’s quote, no doubt drafted by the TSN press office:
“This event has been a real treat. I’ve never played in such a special venue like Casino Rama before,” said Martin. “It’s almost Christmas time and this will surely make it a happy holiday season.”
We’re outta here, hope you enjoyed it. We sure did...
