World curling

They have added a 3rd Asian team to the worlds. Why? There are over a million curlers in Canada. Less than 500,000 in the rest of the world. Why would they not add a 3rd team from North America? And I don’t mean Brazil. 2 from Canada, or at the very least 2 from the gold medal country?

Another perfect example of a "burnt rock" interpretation by the Swiss team.

That was a very nice gesture, even though she could have taken it off. I believe if she had taken if off, she would have discussed it with Jen and did it with some talking and class.

Absolutely.
This type of reaction/decision by Feltscher and her team makes Homan's reaction at the Olympics look even more childish and selfish than it already looked (which was already quite bad).
It's good to know that good sportsmanship and fair play is still being practiced by the majority of curlers.

Bini Feltscher represents all that is right in professional curling. She's always been a true sportswoman - even Jones referred in her pre-game spiel to TSN that she regarded this swiss team as "Good Girls". That's unheard of from Jones - who usually never refers to an opponent - her interaction with opponents limited to simple handshakes at the start of the game and same at end with the salutation "Good luck in your next game . . . "
