How Long Can Clutch Curling Go On?

Again, the Canadian women's curling team at the 2010 Olympics pulled out another victory with their last shot. Wow! They shouldn't get themselves into these situations, but it sure is exciting!

I haven't checked, but I suspect their curling percentages are lower than their record might suggest; or put differently, it is likely their 3-0 record is better than one might expect, given their comparative curling percentages.

Their team cumulative is 78% after tonight for the prelims, which is tied with Sweden, and Switzerland is next at 77%. But the point is a good one. They're getting caught in a lot of tight finishes. I hope they are simply getting the squeakers out of the way early.

I might be American, but I'm really hoping the home teams take the gold men's and women's. (Seconds to Britain on both sides.)

Hey, a quick question that I can't find the answer to: in Olympic curling, what is the minimum number of required ends before conceding? (This CAN-FRA blowout has a few people curious now.)

And thanks again for the blogging.
