A little complicated. China wins they are in. And it seems that no matter what Canad does, they will be in the 2 vs 3 game. It's not page playoff this tournament. It's 1 game, 1 vs 4, 2 vs 3. I prefer so much the page but hey....I'm not making the decision.

So right now, there's 5 teams into play here. China, Sweden, Great Britain, Norway and Canada. 1 will not make the playoffs. Tough loss for any of them as it's probably going to be between Murdoch and Olsrud.

Yep. Usually follow curling, but don't really follow the Asian teams. Didn't expect China to be so good.

Question of inches....people have just no idea how tough that game is. And that Jacobs team is just my favorite. Just like a 4-man hockey team...plenty of passion and aggressiveness.....and a couple of goons.... People who think that you don't have to be in shape to play that sport....Watch Team Jacobs.

They're coached by Canadian Marcel Rocque, of 'Ferbey' fame.

There was a great article on him on La Presse + earlier this week. (Sunday or Monday edition?) Anyone with an iPad should look for it. Great read.

Tessa & Scott getting screwed by judges in ice dancing... No way they deserved 2 points less than the Americans.

They suck, they only were ahead because they cheated.

Please.

Davis and White are undefeated in two years. They are the best in the world. Sure the margin to Tessa and Scott is VERY VERY small, but they are still undefeated in two years.

I don't really know but here's another article that came out after both pairs skated.. Makes one wonder if there really is something "fishy" going on.

By the way, get ready to hear about how L'Equipe is trash and makes all this stuff up. Exactly like when they revealed the Lance Armstrong scandal

First and foremost I would like Putin to be disappointed by the performance of the Russian men's hockey team.

More corrupt than boxing.

And that's not easy to do.
