Mixed Doubles TV Schedule Jan 2-7 - Portage - Full Event Gang - Televised & streaming

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/olympics/w...rling/broadcast

Sorry I posted this with tv/streaming at first and then tried to change the date and forgot to put back the streaming. It appears CBC is streaming it. I don't know if there is an app or a fee. I was trying to check it out but just got back here now. I was on the phone for over an hour with Shaw Direct trying to get back my proper settings on my TV because all had been changed to HD and I couldn't find my channels. I was not advised so if you have issues tomorrow or whenever, check your HD stations because yours could have been changed also.

Also I notice CBC is getting into this Olympic thing with curling. Lots more info on their site

http://www.cbc.ca/sports/olympics/curling

Even Commercials gearing more to it.

Finally we are getting this out there and on the map. Go teams. Can't wait. Thanks Jeff Stoughton for getting into the Mixed so we can enjoy more curling events.

Happy New Year and happy curling to all our curlers. Go get them.

Probably deserves its own thread but here's my predictions for the FINAL 4 and eventual Olympic Doubles reps but I didn't want any of our constant bitchers to have one more thing to complain about:

Laura Crocker & Geoff Walker
Kaitlyn & Johnny Mo
Joss Peterman & Brett Gallant
Sweeting & Gushue

I'll put an asterisk on JJ & Mark Nichols - Nichols head might explode once he's fully immersed in JJ's vascillations. JJ doesn't have a front end of professional agreers in this event so its all on Mark to diagnose situations.

Obviously the event is missing its 3 most athletic and tuned up women players in Homan, Miskew & Courtney due to obvious reasons.

JJ has the big resume but I don't think she's got the ability to assimilate with a new player like Mark Nichols cuz Laing is off to Korea w/ Koe. JJ's fitness in brushing also a huge ? but Nichols might make enough big shots to get them to the stretch run.

Crocker & Walker presents what I think is the most balanced team in the event. Crocker has proven out to NOT be an elite 3rd as many predicted but she's very consistent and combined with Walker's tenacity & ability might be enough to carry them into the final 4.

Sweeting & Gushue should be the odds-on favourites but they're not (immo). Like Jones I question Val's fitness even though she's almost 15 years younger than Jones. Gushue has to watch his ailing back so I don't see him going full out either. 2 Great shot-smiths, one obviously far more consistent than the other. If Brad's wisdom rubs off on Val then this could mean an Olympic berth for this dynamic duo.

Kaitlyn & Johnny Mo are the 2 most talented players at this event - but will John's ego get in their way. John is too much ego - Kaitlyn could be criticized for too little. But they're both fit and dynamic players. Hard to envisage them checking out before the playoff round.

Jones & Nichols is the mystery meat. Lots of folks will concede them a playoff spot. I won't. They'll be up 'n downers during the week.

Joss Peterman & Gallant might be the biggest threat to either Crocker/Walker or Gushue/Sweeting. Peterman has all the tools of a skip or 3rd even though she plays front end for Carey. Gallant is the same - another front-ender with incredible abilities on the tee.

Don't like The McEwens or Birchard/Gunnlaugson.

P,eterman and Gallant won the Canadian title a little while back and are the top seed going in, so yes they may be a theath, Gushue thinks his front end boys have a great shot

Mixed Doubles

Teams with 1 or 2 skips are at a serious disadvantage in MD. Front-ender gym rats will prevail in this format. Advantage: Gallant/Peterman!

Excellent observation - skips are by nature poor brushers with little to no stamina to brush their own or their partner's rocks.
Jones has a good brush in Nichols but he's not quite in the same league as Laing (brush-wise).
The game of MD is a game of making a lot of basic shots, repeat and rinse. BASIC SHOTS - the lifeblood of players like Joss, Jilly Officer, B Gallant, Walker, etc. Even Crocker (who's not a nuanced 3rd as I'd hoped) is pretty good at basic, same with her partner Geoff Walker.
Still tantalized by the Gushue/Sweeting duo for some unknown reason!

Live streaming of the Mixed Doubles

Though I appreciate the efforts to do it, this whole day live streaming and tying up my computer is not working.

Why can't these TV stations just find a common channel and just use the TV for the programs. Not everyone has a laptop or a cellphone tied to their hip. My cell is a medical cell and I don't put apps on it.

Other than that, Interesting curling but sure wish we could get more updates from others that are also curling at the same time. Especially from Manitoba seeing the event is here.

Sorry, but after it stopping so many times on the computer I stopped watching for a while. I may be retired but I am not an unbusy person. I am busier now than ever on here

I appreciate the effort CBC, but if you're going to cover a major event like this you should send competent broadcasters. I don't know who this Matt guy is, but he sounds like he just got off the bus from covering a fun spiel in Kindersley or Flin Flon. And put Joan McCusker with him and she becomes five times as unbearable as she normally is.

Wanting to avoid at all cost any teams already picked by the "trained observer", most of whom are well established favorites, I believe the two final teams playing off to represent Canada will be Carey/Hodgson and Officer/Carruthers.

Lack of crowd at event

On the interviews yesterday the curlers were talking that they were happy to see the number of fans showing up and it was increasing each game and they expected to be full by the weekend doesn't sound like no one attended. Had the weather been accommodating, I would have loved to have gone but I would venture to say that -37 windchill does not entice people to go out and sit at games all day and come out to a frozen up car.

also, we just got over a very busy tie of the year. Many people probably used their holidays and during the week, some people do have to work.

there are about 25 more draws so cbc is trying to show everyone at least once

kudos to them

and that Matt is a breath of fresh air as a commentator

stats seem to be mystic - but im guessing there might not be 2000 people around the world watching .. the streaming is surprisingly excellent and simple. .. once you realize that the site stacks 6 games and you have to select by date and time ..

my wife has watched most draws

Again the same teams and no Manitoba being seen

Let's get some variety here CBC. I am tired of watching teams I don't know and no Manitoba teams. This morning AGAIN we miss McEwens and Carruthers and Officer. A game we want to see. That is super game challenge. Let's see some MANITOBA teams instead of couples arguing all the time. sheesh. I am sure we would get more crowds out if we could see some of the Manitoba curlers and see that they do exist in these tournaments.

They aren't trying to show everybody once. They have one main camera which is pointed at one sheet. Whichever teams are scheduled to be on that sheet get shown.

You have got to be kidding. Matt is terrible.

A little math. After 8 draws I don't recall one Manitoban curler being profiled and yet 20% of participants are from Manitoba. I must be from MB.

Matt couldn't even describe the correct procedure for a touched running stone. Then again Epping should have also known the rule.
Have to agree with the poor choices for tv. TuckTuck today looked like we were in the middle of a family squabble.

well that crocker walker 4 ender was a hoot ..

next they will announce Ford is giving a new F150 for an 8 ender and there will never be another takeout .. if you werent born with a horseshoe , better not take up curling - thou as usual the cream is rising to the top..

the cbc coverage is spectacular - the streaming onto an old ipad, an iphone or my 32 in monitor appears flawless - our tv was on in the background without sound , and my 55 year old son will cancel his cable if he can watch the Jets games on streaming ... watch out cable - netflicks already has more subscribers - reruns of big bang and 20 -50 year old content will be your deathbed

quite the cold walker has - sniff sniff -- such a nice young man , very easy to cheer for

my wife likes the tucks - she says they are as happy as any couple she knows ..

nice to see all the top 30 players becoming best friends and lovers. - its like a big curling hutterite colony ...

talk about total coverage 8 am - midnight
