Yes, nice win indeed for Canada against Sweden I'm really surprised Sweden sent their world junior rep to these championships though, instead of Lindholm. Anyone going to be watching the round robin on Curl Tv?

I think Carlsen beat Lindholm to go the Worlds actually!

Sadly I won't watch them as I find it stupid to pay for it RDS are stupid, they said: well we expected TSN to show it and give us the images. Yeah right

I really thought we would get RR coverage since it's in the U.S. If they had to go to Europe for coverage, I could understand TSN not doing it. I'm thinking it may have something to do with CBC owning the rights, and their deal which brought coverage on TSN back this year?

It is written in the newspaper today that they don't show it because the scheduling would be at the same time than the Golf Masters We don't mind not getting them live, just show them!

I'm surprised at Seb Stock going down early! Stockli could be very dangerous, same with Fenson and Murdoch!

I think the Scotland loss is decent, but the Australia loss is kinda bad. Nobody is eliminated yet though. It will make everything very interesting!
