    USA up 1 going to the 10th end.

    Couldn't they have tried to take out the Norway stone and taken 3?

    I wonder if the Canadian fans will break out their patented "Ovechkin Sucks" chant. It got pretty loud in Grand Forks at the 2005 WJC.

    I believe Germany is playing on a neighboring ice.

    Quick goal; nice pass.

    In curling:
    The US is down by 1 to Norway going to End 9--they have the hammer. Canada just went up big on Deuchland going to End 8.

    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.

    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.

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

    Score? 2-1 Finland.

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

    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%)
    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.
