The Final Day of the Round Robin at the 2009 Ford Men's Worlds
This morning, Canada defeated Denmark to extend its record to 10W and no losses. I thought Canada didn't curl quite as well as their 91% scoring indicated, but they still looked mighty good.
We will not see any curling this afternoon on TSN. Tonight Canada plays Scotland. Our impression is that the game will be on a one-hour tape delay because TSN is showing hockey and golf. If so, it is unlikely we will be live-blogging that last draw of the round-robin.
And starting tomorrow, I'll be on the road and won't be able to do much; also, with The Masters occurring, there will likely be conflicted interests to divert our attention.
And, quite frankly, the way Canada has been playing, it would be (note the subjunctive mood here) a tremendous upset if Canada were not the winner. To the best of my recollection, in the past twenty-five years of watching curling, I don't think I have ever seen a curling team as good as the present Martin rink.
