Battle of the Undefeated Teams

Today (Tuesday) at 11:30am Canada and China meet each other at the 2008 Women's World Curling Championships.
  • Fortunately, TSN.ca is carrying the match, since I'm stuck in the office until 1pm.
  • Unfortunately, I have to teach at 1pm.
  • Fortunately, I am going to declare an optional field trip for the class at 1pm to Gryph's, the pub on campus at the University of Guelph, where we will discuss the economics of the present curling establishment. 8-)
Team Canada will have its work cut out for it; Jones and her rink did not particularly shine in their last two games (vs. Italy and vs. Russia), as TSN said:
Jones's Winnipeg foursome looked ordinary, but still managed to pull out a pair of wins Monday at the Ford world women's curling championship. A 9-6 triumph over Italy's Diana Gaspari and an 8-6 victory over Liudmila Privivkova of Russia left Canada in a tie with the upstart Chinese atop the standings at 5-0 through eight draws. The Canadians made more than their share of mistakes Monday, but came through with key shots when they needed them the most.
