Canada Needs Steal in Extra End to Top Danes

Canada squeaked past the Danes in the 9th Draw of the 2006 Men's World Curling Championships to go to a record of 4 wins and 2 losses, tied for second place in the overall standings of the round robin.

Canada blanked the first end, and then the teams alternated singles for a 2-2 tie after five ends.
In the 6th end, Canada took 3, only to let Denmark answer with 3 of their own in the seventh. Then the Danes stole one in the 9th for the lead, and Canada could manage only one with the hammer in the 10th, to tie the score at 6. But then Menard's rink stole one in the 11th end for the victory.

For the moment, Canada is tied with Scotland at 4 and 2. This afternoon, Canada takes on Norway, 3 - 2.

damned day job!

Did anyone see these commercials for the WCC? I saw them on Fox Sports. They are pretty funny. You can see them at: www.conovertuttlepace.com/curling
