King ponders new strategy

Blake MacDonald let a little more than his hair down Thursday night.

With last year's finalist at 0-4 and facing defending champ Randy Ferbey in yesterday's morning draw ... well, the party was on for the Jamie King rink at the Kia Patch. They were the only no-chance team heading into Friday. So, when the team blasted Ferbey 9-3 yesterday, it dawned on them they may have been approaching this event all wrong.

"I didn't know we had karaoke every night,'' said second Wade Johnston. "That may have been the missing ingredient.''

The result also left King scratching his head and plotting new strategy.

"Yeah, we should have done it Tuesday,'' said King. "Come to think about it, we should have done it about 12 months ago, too.''

That would be the night before last year's final.

Mini Mac let things get out of hand during a group session with John Morris and Paul Moffat, curling's answer to Eminem. He took off his jeans, revealed a jet-black pair of biker pants and started gyrating on the floor.

"He told me 'somebody yelled, take your pants off,' '' said Johnston. "I said 'was the voice you heard your own?' ''

King wasn't buying the excuse either.

"He usually doesn't need any prompting to take his pants off,'' said King, who's seen this act before.

Johnston had the final word.

"Oh, well, I guess you can't spell class without ass,'' said Johnston.

Just another night at the karaoke bar.
