INNISFAIL -- If Taylor Field could only talk.

Yes, if that storied old stadium in Saskatchewan could only tell the tales ...

Hold it.

Taylor Field can talk!

Curl, too.

"My dad was a big Saskatchewan Roughrider fan," said Taylor Field, the third for Dean Davidson's Vermillion rink at the provincial curling championships which opened yesterday.

"I'm from Lloydminster, the Saskatchewan side," said Field.

"My brother, Colby Reed Field is named after George Reed.

"I have four sisters. But they have normal names. My mom drew the line at that."

Taylor Field kinda likes his name.

"I'm a huge Rider fan," he said.

Field says he's used to people doing a double-take when they find out his name.

"I'm used to it. I get it mostly from Edmonton Eskimo fans," he said.

Field said the Jamie King Edmonton rink spared him any shots about his name yesterday.

Field says it was a big thrill playing his first game at the provincials, a 10-4 loss to the King rink.

"I've never curled on arena ice before," he said. "We were a little nervous. Hopefully we'll settle down."
