It is quite possibly a little premature for this kind of talk.

Kevin Martin's team has only won one game.

But, in the last Brier, they won all 11 in the round robin and went to Grand Forks, N.D., where they won the world championship.

Should they end up in Moncton, N.B., for this year's world curling championship, third John Morris would have a bit of a problem.

It didn't rate any coverage, but last weekend, Morris won the provincial firefighters title and a trip to Prince Edward Island.

"The last weekend of the Canadian Firefighters is the first weekend of the Worlds," he said.

"If we win here, I might have a little problem. I'm not sure my skip would be all for that."

Morris, a Calgary-area firefighter, didn't enter the event to fulfill some dream of claiming the coveted firefighters title.

"I went in it mostly for a good time," he said.

"It was such a fun event to curl in. I had two guys on my team who had never curled before.

"They're guys my age and I'm always trying to interest people in the game and help anybody who wants to start curling."
