Desperate times call for desperate measures, and Newfoundland and Labrador skip Greg Smith was open to anything with his rink down 7-1 to Nova Scotia at the Brier.

Trailing by a wide margin in the sixth end, Smith and his squad really had nothing to lose at this point. Readying his team for a seemingly difficult shot, the skip blurted out “Who cares, we're down 7-1.”

I don’t know if that qualifies as motivation or self deprecation, but whatever it was, it worked.

Team Newfoundland and Labrador pulled off the ridiculous around the horn shot to earn two points with the final stone. Smith’s toss may go down as the best of the tournament, but unfortunately for him and the rest of the Newfoundland and Labrador rink, it wasn’t enough to spark a comeback as the side lost 11-4.

Newfoundland and Labrador currently sits at the bottom of the Pool B standings at the Brier with an 0-4 record. They're scheduled to face off against Eddie MacKenzie’s Prince Edward Island rink on Monday. With an 0-3 record, P.E.I. is searching for its first win as well.
