  • Re: The Official Thread of the Run-Up to the XXI Olympic Winter Games, Vancouver, Canada

    Does anyone know what the numbers the curling team is yelling out? I've heard a 91 and an 86 when asked, "What do you got" while the rock is in motion. Any idea?

      It has to do with how much weight they put into their throw.
      the state of hockey is good

            Wait, so I just saw this stat:

            US Women's Hockey team in the Russia game: 7 PP goals.
            Russia: 7 SOG.

            That's embarrassing.

              Much obliged. I kinda figured it had to do with the strength of the throw but I didn't realize the accuracy was within 1% (assuming the scale is 100%)

                      How did the USA score 2 on that? The second stone was outside the scoring area.

                        I don't know for sure, but I don't think it is %. I think it is actually 2 numbers, not 86, it is 8 6. I don't know what it means other than it refers to the weight that the rocks are thrown at.

                          And it should be 1-1 except China scored an own-goal.

                            And one of Finland's goals was actually a Chinese own-goal.

                              It seems like the 3 other curlers on team USA aren't in sync with USA's skip... I noticed it earlier, but there seems to be lots of arguing on strategy. IMHO.

                                The stones are wider in the middle than at the bottom. It was probably barely touching.


                                Also, the officiating in the china-finland game makes me actually feel good about both college and NHL refereeing. Its been pretty atrocious.
