I have tried to see what everyone is talking about in rewatching the livestream, and Iím not seeing it. I watched live and didnít notice, either. My curiosity is piqued.

Look at their pipes in front of the blowpipe stock, and around the chanter stock. See that shiny looking stuff? That's the mylar they wrapped over their chanter stocks to reflect the sun and heat, to keep their upper hand stable.

Looks-wise, you'd think they were saving bridies to eat as soon as they walk off the field.

Had it on Saturday. That was the only day I could watch, and I remember them talking about it.

I only watched Saturday morning which were all the medleys. Bob Worrall commented about the Mylar at the end of their playing. Select the Scottish Power medley from the BBC page:
