I'm reading that all playoff games (sat and sun) are to be televised on CBC. However, our TV guide does not show the 7:00 semifinal game being televised. (It is hockey night). Am I missing something? We have been watching streaming all week.

Two things I like about watching this event -

I like the dots running down the sides of the sheet. I find myself judging weight from my couch - adds to the fun. (My normal method is to forget about timing and read the sweepers). Doesn't effect play, but makes a big difference as a TV viewer. Hope they think of adding this in the big televised/streamed events.

I like that blank ends are scarce and I am not subjected to long boring strings of strategic "peel 'n replace". Gawd, nothing on TV more boring. Here every team is going to take a point if they can. The FGZ in regular play helps but maybe they can try no hitting anywhere until the back end?

Not sure Kaitlyn is having any fun at all. Did she have another teammate before Morris?

Morris' ego is so huge- must be related to DTrump. Simple hit to lie 3 and instead sets of a triple . Good for Val for sticking it to him,

SURE HOPE LAWES HEADS TO ALBERTA AT THE END OF THE SEASON.

THE POTENTIAL THERE IS UNLIMITED; POTENTIAL IN THE PEG? ZERO!!

Kaitlyn Lawes is owned and operated by Jennifer Jones, Inc. So long as JJ wants to continue curling (and mostly losing as she can no longer stand up to the top skips) Kaitlyn will wallow - and have to be satisfied with a waft of sponsorship money (Jones is very good attracting money)
Based on what I saw vs. Jones I'd say Joss Peterman is almost ready to return to skipping - having a hand like Kaitlyn Lawes at 3rd would be incredibly helpful.
Personally, don't like Kaitlyn replacing Lori Olson-Johns on Team Giggles (Sweeting) either.
If Peterman can conquer some mild anxiety issues (pretty evident she's ultra-tense; but so was Jones) the sky is the limit.
Right now there's really no western super-team that can stand up to the withering shot-pelting of Rachel Homan.
I think going young is the best answer - Peterman & Lawes are two of the best.
Other idea is for Peterman to be brought into Manitoba - replacing Jones and keeping Dawn & Jill around for another year or 2. Still very high-grade front end.
The problem is not the front end or Kaitlyn. Its pretty obvious!

Feel sorry for Kaitlyn. John is treating her like a novice and she's far too good to let him be so bossy. He is so full of himself its almost funny. Her expressions sometimes seem to say "I would give anything to be anywhere else tonight".

Really can't see Johnny Mope & Kaitlyn standing up to Peterman & Gallant.
Gallant is a far superior (and much cooler) player than Morris and while Kaitlyn can hold her own with anyone (possible exception = Rachel Homan) she'll be facing far higher degrees of difficulty with her shots vs. Joss P.

Jones should not be playing MD period. She killed all her time in the first half of the game, draining the clock exactly like she does in women's play. Left herself no time whatsoever to think over her last rock and left Peterman an absolute doozey-eazey last rock - even Fresca could have made that shot!

Officer & Reid probably had the most fun. Jill is an outstanding person, so is Reid. Only knock on Jill is she's a run-off curler, not a nuanced shooter. She was dead in the water from the get-go. Credit to them they made playoffs.

What a performance by Kaitlyn!!!

Courageous under the imposing arrogance of Johnny Mope.
Kaitlyn didn't really have a choice - Mark from Koe's squad was her partner - he's gone. Now they pair her with the moody and incessant John Morris. But she carried John as far as she could - ignored all the odds-makes and dealt the favourites (Joss/Brett) a butt-whipping.
Now she's in a tough fight vs. 2 of the best skips in the country. Gushue & Sweeting. I really don't know what to expect - although Brad is far superior to Morris in the thinking department. Kaitlyn & Val are about even - Kaitlyn the more powerful brusher. COULD BE A CLASSIC, BRUCE RAINNIE, COULD BE A CLASSIC!!!

John was a different curler tonight. More considerate, mostly stayed with the rock, deferred to Kaitlyn on occasions, no reckless shot choices and curled at a high level. If they play tomorrow like today, they have a very good chance of going to the Olympics, in my opinion.

Kaitlyn has quickly ascended to the top of yours truly's list of favourite women curlers. Currently:

1. K. Lawes
2. JJ
3. Rachel H.
4. Sandra Schmirler
5. Jenn Hanna
6. Jill Officer
7. Emma Miskew
8. Jocelyn Peterman
9. Kim Kelly
10. Mo Bonar/Shannon Kleibrink (tie)

Hon. mention: The Shredder (aka Jeanna Schroeder)

Oops - now I've jinxed her. Doesn't stand a chance tomorrow vs. Goo & Valberta!

So once again ML presents a bunch of facts that just are not true. Lawes was with Ryan Fry at the end of last season and all of this season. They did poorly in the mixed doubles points race and did not get an invite. Luckily for Lawes, Morris lost his partner (Homan) and she was the beneficiary. Gee, Homan/Morris have been one of the top mixed doubles teams for two years(look at the points, don't take my word for it) but of course the popular narrative is that Lawes is carrying Morris? Sure ML, whatever.

Morris rubs many people the wrong way to be sure but he is a champion through and through. He also knows enough to demote himself to third and give Simmons skipping duties in that Brier a few years back. Does he have an ego, yes....does he know how to win, also yes.

If you want a skip with a bigger ego simply look to the smug Gushue. He just does it in a far 'nicer ' way...both with Sweeting and his regular team.

Go Lawes/Morris !

All the finalists in the MD have incredible history in curling.

Both Morris & Gushue are storied curlers with incredible legacies. Another Olympic experience; just a feather in their caps.

Morris managed to stave off perhaps the best overall mixed curler in the land last nite (Gallant) and let his skip do her job.

While Val Sweeting doesn't quite have the curling legacy of Kaitlyn Lawes she's been a perennial contender on the national scene for many years - losing Joanne Courtney to Homan probably set her STOH dream back a tad (not only did it weaken Team Sweeting, it helped build Team Homan into a Curlzilla). Along with Emma Miskew Lawes is the pre-eminent 3rd in womens curling.

Should be a gooder, a real rager today. The big advantage is how Gushue utilizes rocks in the house. Perhaps the best ever. Do Lawes and Morris have the skills to confront this deficiency is the biggest question for today's game.

Gushue/Val are the favourites due to rock positioning.

Kaitlyn/John toppling them would be viewed as a minor upset.

A minor upset looks it's coming, hopefully Jones can find a new vice...

GO KAITLYN GO !!!

La Petite Pepperpot might be the most loveable athlete at the Olympic games.

Kaitlyn Lawes returns to the Olympics - WHAT A GREAT AND MAGICAL STORY

Keith (her dad) would have been so proud.

Didn't know Kaitlyn had switched from Olympic ice-skater to pro hockey player (in Norway) as her boyfriend. . . . surprise, surprise!@

Kaitlyn won both her Olympic spots in Manitoba - 1st in Winnipeg, now in Portage La Prairie.

As curlerbroad has stated it appears Jennifer JJ has to find a new 3rd for the Manitoba playdowns - unless she can find a loophole and force Kaitlyn to work the deal in Killarney. Now the mystery - who does JJ bring aboard? Can she bring in an out-of-province 3rd? Or does she have to scour the local leagues for a good woman? Jennifer Clarke-Rouire is her go-to spare . . . . . if she goes out of province - some names to toss about - Jeanna Schroeder, Jen Hanna, Kim Kelly, Stefanie Lawton, Stephanie Schmidt, last two from Sask'n. Don't think Askin or Officer will work at 3rd.

SO HAPPY FOR MY FAVOURITE!!!

Amazing how little ML knows about JJ for all his many many many posts about her. I am 99 percent sure her official residence changed last year and she is already her teams designated out of province curler as she lives just outside Barrie Ontario.

Lawes can probably play provincials but if Team Homan was forbidden to play Nationals I can't see how Lawes could play the Scotties should the qualify.
