Oh wow! I thought for sure our boys were gonna give up 2 in the 10th for the loss, but Murdoch missed his shot. That was a crazy game. Went from a sure fire win, to a sure fire loss, and won it in the end.

Its great them being from the Sault! Doing excellent!
BUT: ......
-let us not forget about the Canadian Ladies Team? Jennifer Jones --they are a perfect 6-0 right now being heavy favorite for GOLD.
Would be great to get Gold in Men's and Women's Curling and of course Hockey!

They were really lucking to come out with a win Jacobs had a chance for 2 in the 9th end and blew it taking 1 point giving the hammer to Britain in the 10th end. that's the second time they almost lost a game in the 9th end. they are definitely not playing there best. Just calling it the way I watched it so go Team Jacobs go.

Ter did you watch the game...they outplayed GB. Jacobs rock picked up debris and that is why his shot was missed - not because of bad play. They played awesome today

Yes John I've watched all there games from the beginning and in the 9th end Jacobs last rock only managed to take out 1 of Britain's rocks where he had a double in his sites but just took out the 1 if he had made the double in the 9th then he would of had a 7-5 score going into the 10th, and that's where he caught an edge on his rock.
