What I meant here is that this particular tournament doesn't feel like an important curling tournament, like the Tim Horton's Brier of World championships.

Until about 6 years ago I just laughed when I saw curling on TV; didn't get it all. Now I understand it better (though I still don't know all the rules) and sometimes I get quite into watching it.

I also tried it once; it's very, very hard!

team world leading 100-68 after draw 7

team north america still can come back thanks to the rediculously stupid idea of having 2 games worth 110 points on the final day

I heard they had mixed men's and women's teams in one set of matches. I'm sorry I missed that. You don't see that too often.

fenson is good but he really has alot of people thinking he's better than he is because of the olympic bronze he got in 2006. He hasnt done anything aside from that..he's more of a pain in the ass to the top teams rather than actually being one himself

he's just come along at a time when the level of play of mens teams in the US is, for the most part poor.

i have hopes for the tyler geroge rink though, which has 2008 world jr. champ chris plys playing at 3rd so hopefully they can progress and fulfill potential

Re: Off Topic Chat Thread

hey Misty can you change one of your thread titles in the Stan Wawrinka forum? The 2011 cheering thread has only four pages; I don't see any point in starting a new one. Maybe call it Stan's Cheering Thread 2011-2012.
