VICTORIA - Fast. Fly in the Ferbey Four.
They'd know what to do.
The last time the Ford World Curling Championships were here in 2005 was the last time a team came out of the 3-4 game of the Page playoff system to win it.
Indeed, Randy Ferbey came from further back than that.
The last time the Worlds were here there was a never-happened-before six-way tie for first.
When the officials emerged from the back room after much mathematical wizardry, it was decided Scotland and Germany would go to the 1-2 game and the other four teams would go into tie breakers. Canada was put into the six hole without last-rock advantage all the way.
It was one of the great stories in curling history.
It took a tie-breaker against Markku Uusipaavalniemi of Finland, a win in the 3-4 game against Olympic gold medal winner Pal Trulsen of Norway, a semifinal victory over Germany's Andy Kapp and an 11-4 win in the final over David Murdoch of Scotland, but Canada won it.
