The team skip from Great Britain was noted saying he didn’t appreciate Jacobs, fist pumping and ya’s … too funny … has this pompous ass every been to a his own Great Britain soccer matches …. The players after a goal run wildly screaming, fist pumping, ripping off their shirts, front somersaults …not to mention the mayhem in the stands as well …sounds to me he’s a little worried .. and a lot of sour grapes..from the pompous puttz.

You go Brad .....

We are one of many Canadians here in Florida, I am from Sault Ste. Marie we are little disappointed that they are not showing the game. Thanks for the Live Blog Soo Today. We are very proud of Team Jacobs whatever the outcome.

Trapped in Desbarats today due to the 2 feet of cement that fell overnight in the 100 mile an hour winter wind storm! I'd like to see cold crisp snow but we got the wet 1000 pound kind this morning. Needless to say we are getting the John Deere ready to clear a trail out but missed going into the Sault Essar Center center to join the Jacobs Party! Oh well CBC High Definition coverage is next to being there! End of 4 and they are measuring for 1...and the winner is Canada!

grandmahas2, I'm pretty sure you can stream it from the CBC website.

hopefully it works for you. May say not available in your territory, but worth a shot.
grandmahas2 2/21/2014 10:12:01 AM Report

Thanks for your help. I tried CBC and NBC would not let me in without the password which I don't have. Thanks again. Thank Goodness for the Blog
