Nice that we got an early steal of two and hopefully it relaxes them a bit 'cause this is a must win.

I think they were a bit nervous the first few draws. They have settled down and now are playing like they did last year! Go team go!

Looks like China is the team to beat.
stormy shores 2/12/2014 12:48:26 PM Report

Agreed ... early steal of two! But what happened to sportsmanship! End ten the Russian wanted to play his last rock. He was flipped off by our great SSM team representing Canada. I have lost total respect for our Sault curlers. They need alot of improvement ... not doing well at all.

Give it up with the feigned outrage, Stormy Shores. All they did was clean up the rocks when the game was over like any other team would do. It was a peculiar request by the Russian skip that took everyone, even a couple of his own teammates by surprise.

It's true though that they're still not curling their best. The good news is there's no page playoff, so it doesn't really matter whether they finish first or fourth - they'll be in the semis regardless.

It would really complicate things if they are to drop another one, however.

Way to go Team Jacobs!!!
Tag33&1/3rd 2/12/2014 1:22:20 PM Report

I think it was instant reflex and just pure relief at the end of the game that they swept the rocks away.
It wasn't done on purpose.
learningaswego 2/12/2014 1:39:43 PM Report

Even the best teams usually have a couple of off games in any big curling event.
The Sault lads are not only going to get better as the week goes on, they're going to peak just at the right time.

GO TEAM JACOBS!

The Russians lost because of the pants they were wearing. They look like they came out of a box somebody found from the 1970s'
