More OTR mayhem

by Jill Officer

WINNIPEG – Breaking news: TSN’s afternoon talk show Off The Record features two curling guys on its four-person panel on Wednesday: Wayne Middaugh (above) and Peter Steski. And they’re talking Brier, of course.

Wayne, you will recall, got my goat prior to December’s Casino Rama Skins on OTR by declaring that “the Olympics have ruined curling” (I wrote about that in the January issue of The Curling News). Middaugh also went on to call Kevin Martin a cheater – to his face! – regarding Corn Broomgate at the 1991 Silver Broom World Curling Championships. What will Wayne come up with tomorrow?

As for Steski, I don’t know him very well but I am told that he was a multiple OTR guest a few years ago, and while his curling profile might be lower than Wayne’s he is pretty quick with the quips. He served as the Ontario/Quebec rep to the World Curling Players’ Association and he reportedly despises the Toronto Maple Leafs, so that could certainly be interesting.

Maybe I’ll tune in, too...
