CBC Coverage Sucks Again!
3 Lead Stones Not Shown in Each End

Thanks for almost nothing, CBC. Here we are in the fourth end of the 2007 Women's Worlds, and we still haven't seen the first three lead stones of any end. CBC is too friggin' busy showing too many commercials. And then, when they go back live to Japan, they point the camera somewhere other than the ice while Don blathers about something from a prepared script.

btw, even though Canada is leading going into the fourth, Denmark is looking pretty darned good.

Yes. Those shots of the ceiling and the overlay on the bottom of the screen for the Walter Gretzky made-for-CBC movie were far more important than showing the lead stones. Mike and Joan could have phoned in their commentary. And Don Wittman, bless his heart, was once again over his head.

It's as if the CBC is trying to anger curling fans. "Ok, they insisted on coverage, but we don't have to make it any good..."

I guess they showed us. Why don't they just hit us over the head with sticks?
