Canada Defeats Denmark in round one* of the 2008 Worlds

Martin missed a couple of shots early in the draw, but made a spectacular draw to the button in the 8th end as Canada defeated Denmark 9-3 in the second draw of the round robin. To see the difference between the teams, check out the curling percentages between the two teams:
Overall, Canada curled 86% while Denmark curled only 62%.

Too bad we couldn't see the end of the Sweden-Australia match which looked as if it must have had an exciting finish. But CBC-Bold ended their coverage at 20 minutes to the hour, when Canada's game was over. What an odd time to end their coverage.

*clarification: It was Canada's first draw, but the second draw of the championship.

I couldn't believe it when I looked in the newspaper for the curling schedule for the Worlds. What a bummer!! We have been looking forward to watching Canada play after the Brier and now we are extremely disappointed. This certainly won't give any encouragement for the sport of curling.
