I happen to be a 45 year old Canadian that grew up on the ACC, Big East, Big Ten and March Madness. Most people I grew up with watch the tournament. True Canadian sports fans watch most sports and are as well rounded as any North Eastern or Mid-Western American fan who grew up with hockey. I'm an outlier in that hockey is actually 6th or 7th on my list of sports (but there are others like me).

The average non-sports-fan Canadian watches hockey and is unaware other sports exist. Whereas the average non-sports-fan American watches football, and possibly Big Bang Theory and NCIS.

Top 5 teams no doubt are Canada, Switzerland, Scotland, Sweden and Russia in that order, which team will miss the playoffs, we shall see.

BIG GAME: CANADA VS. SCOTLAND

Don't think this is a complete Do or Die game for Scottish Princes. Even after EJ Kim (Korea) took her out earlier 10-6.

Given her team, I don't blame Eve for being disinterested in such a long and smoggy event. The smog must be horrid for healthy girls like the Homans to be wearing gas maaks wherever they go in Bejing? No?

However, Eve's match vs. Homan is basically her Worlds today. Should she lose she'll go to 4 losses - not out of the thing entirely but teetering on the precipice. The way things are going 4 losses could be tie-breaker or 4th outright.

So what does Eve need to beat Canada? First, she needs her entire team to raise their level of play at least 5 or 6 pts. Otherwise Eve will be reduced to attempting triples and side angle wedge freezes. She also needs Homan to get bored and somewhat disinterested - its entirely possible as this event is dragging out - there's almost zero Canadian media and fans there, even The Happy Gang stayed away but the smog didn't!

Eve is the most explosive curler in the ladies game. Even when Jones was on that amazing and unbeaten Olympic run - it was Eve who almost put the stomp on her in the semi-finls thru one amazing double and roll shot (remember JJ was going swimmingly along but placed her 2nd last stone in the wrong spot - and Eve used it to her own accord - Jones had to draw the pin, otherwise she wouldn't have even medalled. Period!

From a world championship point of view - I don't see Raytch hitting as many lows as Jones traditionally did.

Rachel's demeanour is the most impressive part of this event immo. She's simply blossomed into a well-rounded and emotionally balanced performer. At times her notorious off-ice sense of humour even emerges during the games - and its keeping the rest of her squad loose. No more emotional detachment and Lucy vs. Viv act w/ Emma. Its mostly business. And its working.

PS. I guess Anna Sidorova didn't get the memo from Jennifer Jones about keeping games close. She lambasted Italy 11-1 in only 6 ends. That vicious & cruel.

So if Eve gets a bit of support, Homan doesn't bring her A game and Eve can pull off some of her royal last rock antics - a win for the scots is very possible. If Scotland delivers their B game, HOman returns to near perfection - Eve could be short work.

Won't be this week - but I wonder when Eve makes the move to install Lauren Gray as her full-time 3rd?

The Happy Gang (Vic, Russ, Cheryl) sure putting a stomp on Vicki & Anna - done in a nice way but really criminalizing those two Scottish ladies!

this should be a game not to be missed , perhaps Homan's toughest yet , we shall wait and see, Scotland playing China and Muirhead has to win and not fall to 4 loses did anyone notice in the Korea Vs Canada game that for a brief moment TSN commentators were NOT TO BE HEARD and some lady with a Scottish accent was doing the play by play ...

For 1st place, for sure!

But remember, someone amongst Russia, SUI, Scotland is gonna make it to the semi-final. One game battle - could go any way!

But right now Sweden has full control of their game - after suffering an early loss. I still think Anna Hasselborg needs to find that killer instinct that champions like Homan, Jones, Norberg & Coco possessed. Even Ladyhawke Paetz!

for me by far the biggest shocker of this event has been china. some called it a slow start v.s canada but their level here has just been bad all week and not getting any better. im just shocked. they've had a good year on tour. still not ruling out the possiblity that they can get it together and make a run to the end but the signs arent good

Yep - outside chance one of those Little 3 can nip out a tie-breaker - if the cards fall the right way!

As for Team Princess - doesn't seem to be an abundance of Kaitlyn Lawes or Emma Miskews in Scotland these days - not even a Katie Cameron or Kendra Lilly. Sloan is the obvious weakness but Eve's friendship has kept her in play. Now the Scottish federation wants results - NOT FRIENDSHIPS!

Lauren Gray might get the call before Flemming - she made the right move to start up as the lead on a re-calibrating super-squad. Perhaps the best move would be moving Gray up to 3rd, and bringing Hannah in at lead - displacing Anna Sloan.

Appearing more and more that Sweden will present biggest threat to Canada. . . . but I still can't rule out The Ladyhawke (Patz) or even SadAnna Sidorova!

Comparing Officer to Courtney

Sometimes I think Jill is a mute compared to Courtney.

Joanne basically can't stop talking during games - almost over-communicative if you will!

But right now - Jo Courtney is the best 2nd in the world! NO QUESTION!

PS. I joke about Courtney's constant patter - but it help keeps her team sharp and focussed - and she backs it up with shots, to boot!
Officer & Dawn basically only communicated when Jones asked "What do you guys like?" but learned quickly that the only correct response was "We Like what you like, Jen!"

Haha the Republic of JJ! At least Rachel makes her mind up and throws.

Now that we are more then halfway through the competition you can start looking at the statistics on the world Curling website and make some conclusions. Forget about current wins and losses for a second. Looking at shooting percentages for individuals and teams, scoring ends, blanks for and against, steals the best teams do bubble to the top.

I would say Canada, Sweden, Russia, and Switzerland (barely) would make the playoffs.

Looking at actual wins and losses of course Canada and Sweden are separating themselves from the rest. The statistics bare this out as well.

Both of Canada's shakey games were 9am draws on sheet C. I wonder if sheet C or B will be used for the playoffs.?

China hasn't been particularly good in quite a few years. The 2009 title was their peak, and they've been a downward trend since then. I'm not really sure what happened to their program - maybe someone else knows.

RE : EVE MUIRHEAD

Ever since Muirhead graduated from the Juniors, which she

dominated for many years, and began to compete in the Euros,

the Worlds and the Olympics, commentators have never failed

to point out she was a teenage scratch handicap golfer who

had received numerous huge golf scholarship offers from

major universities in the U.S.A. They never indicated the

value of these offers but something in the $350,000 -$400,000

range would not be unusual. Additionally, this normally

provides a stepping stone to qualify for the LPGA which

has, of course, unlimited potential.

Take Canada's own Brooke Henderson for example. After

slightly more than 1 year on the tour, this 19 year old has

tournament winnings alone approaching $2,000,000.

Why Muirhead decided not to pursue a golf career, or even

give it a shot for a short period of time, has never been

explained. But now, of course, it's too late. The offers

have long stopped coming. At 26 years of age she's still

young by curling standards but probably too old to suddenly

consider how to qualify for the LPGA.

As a curler and an avid golfer ( I have a 9 handicap ) I'd

much prefer to see her compete in say the RICOH Women's

British Open next August instead of skipping in some curling

event.

But that's just not going to happen. Too bad.

LPGA EVE MUIRHEAD

Stuff happens!

Our most promising junior skip, Mary Fay - walked away from a most promising curling career to go into medicine, training to be a doctor!

Ali Kreviazuk left one of the most dominant curling outfits on the planet - for love!

Stuff happens!

Would I love for Mary Fay to be representing a maritime province and strengthening a currently morbid curling program? Sure, but Ms. Fay had to do what was best for Ms. Fay - she had the intelligence and concentration to be a physician. So be it!

Even my top girl - Jennifer Jones took a temporary leave from hard-core competitive curling to obtain her law degree - and articling for a year or more. When she returned - she didn't win her first STOH until she was on the north side of 30. We sometimes look at Homan vs. Jones - where Homan has 3 Canadian titles and she's not yet 28. . . . but Rachel did not have the rigors of legal studies - she's been a full time or near full-time professional curler since she was 16.

To say that she turned down a golf scholarship to a major USA golf factory is true but everything after that is conjecture. Not every member of Stanford or Florida's golf teams go on to great success as a pro. Some struggle and some never make big (or at all) although some do graduate and do very very well. It is a bit of a crap shoot. Check the link to a news article below, she explains it very well. Sounds like she chose curling over golf for all the right reasons. Looking at her decision with seven years of hindsight I'd say she choose correctly. Also, even though she can't make millions as a curler I don't stay up at night worrying if she can pay her electricity bill or not, lol.

As for Brooke Henderson, that is apples and oranges. Brooke was destined to be a fantastic pro by the age of 15. Eve never had that kind of can't miss talent. She might have gotten there over time but the comparison is unfair to Eve for sure.

IMO JJ & Mary Fay made the right decisions. Mary Fay only has to look at JJ - flexible yet lucrative career and an Olympic gold medal. And a few titles to go along with it. We may not see Mary Fay either until she is 30 given the rigours of a medical career. However, there are many options with the path she is following. I have a relative who started down that path but is now making six figures in the biotech industry with flexible hours.

Best to have a solid career if you wish to purse elite level curling. Where will Eve be in 10 years?

Missing Japan

Unsurprisingly, European teams are bringing rear. It's disappointing that the 2016 silver medalist Japanese team isn't at this event to stir things up. They were a delight to watch last year. I am unclear as to why we still limit Asia Pacific to 2 berths.

At some point, the WCF needs to consider the strength of the Asian teams. The depth of field in Europe does not justify the number of berths coming out of that region in the women's field.

Last place at the women's world championship has been held by at least one European team every year since 2000 except one, where it was held by an Asian team. Two times there was an Asian team tied with a European team for last. It's a shame to see strong teams sitting on the bench because the WCF is unwilling to change the way we have always done it.
