World Cup - China

There are some good teams here on the womens' side; we should get an indication as to whether or not Team Homan has its mojo back.

Early season tourney so most of the teams will be using it to shed rust.

Short women's field - I suspect if any attention paid to the form chart it should be Hasselborg & Homan in the event final.

Sidorova could factor in because she's already played in some games & tourneys.

If Homan is 3/4 to 7/8 of her normal game she'll be very tough to beat - obviously the two canadian teams who stand up to her best are the still-growing Scheidegger ensemble and Jennifer Jones.

Personally I don't think there's another team on the planet that instills fear in Jones like Homan. Jones assumes she has to be ultra-perfect otherwise Homan will do her in - so thats a heavy chore, indeed.

this is seriously a joke. has the audience always been this bad in the arena?. im watching the game tonight and im not being dramatic in saying i at first thought no one was there. i struggled to find people in the seats.

i know curling struggles to attract audiences but this is embarrassing

well there's a result no one in the world could have seen coming. edin loses to ruohonen

edin and decruz both looked pretty ordinary today. decruz has played non stop . 4th week in a row. perhaps overplayed coming into this?

Those numbskulls who keep selecting locations for world curling events where the number of fans is usually less than the number of vendors are doing this sport a huge disservice.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see the curlers in their own uniforms with many logos of their own sponsors. Very good signs for more power going to the players rather than the tournament organizers.

A decade ago, I toured with a large musical group in Shanghai and Beijing which involved a live TV broadcast. Every venue was officially sold out but at best bodies in seats was 1/3rd of the halls. Always a last minute crisis to get each performance license from authorities, often involving a last minute unexpected payment to an official and blocks of seats donated to various school and other groups.

Lots of things about this Cup series are appearing to be last minute and like any new endeavor there will be growing pains. Time will tell if this series lasts beyond the Beijing Winter Olympics. For the sake of curlers in Asia and all the full time elite curlers worldwide, I wish it all the success possible.

this event is just a mess.

the ice is not that good
the audience is no existent
the website constantly is having tech issues

this has not been a good start for this event

and the lack of audience is really annoying because i've seen some spectacular shots made here and there's no one there to appreciate them. the shot by persinger to steal against sweden, the shot through the port by mouat today to set up the win over switzerland.

players barely even acknowledge the audience because they know no one is there

also just want to give huge props to mouat in those last 2 ends. 2 great, clutch shots from him to bail his team out of trouble. the draw in 7 to force was great. his team made like..2 shots ahead of him in 8 and made a great hit through a port for the win in 8. nerves of steel

The event is not without its flaws but I can never complain about new events that come with something a little different. I like having a page where the scores are auto-refreshed, something I'd like to see on the WCT/Slam pages.

I have had fun following the CWC and continue to cheer on that nice record Canada has going. Love what I am seeing from the new-look Koe rink!

Watched the abbreviated Canada/USA game. Canada flawless. Rachel is still the "Smoothest of the Smooth." If that game speaks for the future, every other team should be concerned.

Paid attendance: 4

highest score?

Last night over the interwebs, I watched the US mixed doubles team win by a final score of 18 to 4. That's the most I've ever seen in a televised event in any format, and I was wondering if anyone here has seen more than that. (It included a perfect 6 in the 1st end.)

Also, stubhub now have my Omaha all-sessions ticket for sale for anyone looking to go at a discount.

Couple of Questions

Tiebreaker between Mouat and Koe, assuming both win their last game? I hope it's a game and not a draw to the button.

In the standings on this site, Koe is denoted with a Canadian flag, while team Homan shows the flag of Ontario (despite two team members living in Alberta). Any reason for this?

According to the blog:

"As if the conclusion to men's Group B couldn't get any more fascinating. We've just been informed by the tournament officials that regardless of the result in Team Koe's match this afternoon at 1600 against Japan, each Canadian team member will have to draw a stone to the button afterwards. An average of the distance of those four stones from the button will then be calculated.

Then, at 1930, Scotland play Switzerland and (concentrate, now!) if they match Canada's result, Team Mouat will then also be required to draw one stone each. An average distance from the button would then be calculated, with the shortest average distance between Scotland and Canada then deciding who goes through to the final.

Are we all clear!?"

Not sure what to think of this, I too would prefer another game between them. Did they ask for the player's input on this? Despite this loss I think the new-look Koe rink will be a strong team.

Agreed. Proud of our Canadians, rooting for a trifecta in all disciplines! If not, still impressed with them for getting to the finals in their first events of the season (or for the new-look Team Koe, for their debut). Fun 'spiel to follow.

Great early season conquest for Rachel & Co. She was obviously loaded for bear and the bear was Team Hasselborg. Two of the very best shot-pelting teams in the world - facing off in the final (as I easily predicted) w/ Homan dominating and 1 up coming home w/ hammer (scored 3 with last rock).
If Rachel is back at near 100% Homan she'll be near impossible to push off the throne. Jennifer Jones prolly the only canadian team that has a chance - but NOT in a shot-pelting kind of way. Jones has never been a shot-pelter. She's the world's craftiest campaigner - setting traps and using her diabolic assortment of tricks amassed over her quarter century career.
Rachel is now JJ's main kryptonite - and Hasselborg is the biggest world threat for either canadian team.

Its gonna get interesting!

CONGRATS to all our Canadians for making it a Canadian sweep! Great to see Homan get off to a great start, lovely win for our Mixed Doubles pair and GREAT debut for the new Koe rink; formidable already even with the fact that they didn't get much practice beforehand and are in the "getting-to-know you" stage!

Wow, BJ had a huge smile on his face, something I never saw with his previous skip...and Koe seemed very happy too.

JJ seems to have found some new kryptonite tonite in Saskatoon - Ashley Howard (of the Howard Dynasty) is hammering the golden girl 6-1 playing the 5th.
