Feel real bad for Val Sweeting - a classy lassie if there ever was; runner-up at 2 Scotties, now runner-up for an Olympic berth.

Neither Lawes nor Sweeting burned up the stats barometer but you'd expect slightly more out of the gal that's skipped last decade. Kaitlyn was clearly more comfortable in the situation than nail-biting Val and made a clutch hit for 4 to basically win the game in the 4th end.

Johnny Mo & Goo curled to pretty much a dead heat - Brad had a couple bad throws and was clearly off-balance on one (wonder if his back started to bother him with all the exertion of 13 games et al?)

Are MD teams allowed an extra player? Or would they borrow someone from either the mens or womens Olympic team should something happen? Anyone know the Olympic rules on this?

Think I heard no replacements allowed. The team is just done if something happens to one player.

They definitely said on the broadcast that if a mixed doubles player goes down at the Olympics and can’t play, the team goes down too. No alternates.

Congrats to Morris and Lawes! Here's hoping for triple gold for Canada in a few weeks!

Quick Q about the rules of MD.

During CBC's coverage, every time they showed their little graphic explaining the rules, the section for the 'power-play' ended with a configuration of a centre guard and a rock buried in the house in the top-8. Did they just screw up or is that an actual third option for a power-play (the other two being each side of the sheet).

Also, when my club tried it at the end of last season, one of the rules was that the team who didn't score had the option of whether to take last rock or not.
Has that ever been a rule in top level play? If so, is it still a rule but one that is ignored as no top level team would ever not want to throw last?

Power play allows for rocks to be set up outside of centerline only once per game. Seven ends use the centerline set up. Hammer goes to non counting team same as convential curling. One difference is, if team blanks end they lose hammer .

Yeah. I assumed the CBC had just screwed up their graphics regarding the power play.

However, I did just find this http://www.cbc.ca/sports/olympics/c...ainer-1.4060587 which seems to say that deferring hammer is still an option...

"The team with the hammer (last rock) chooses where to place these two stones. If that team elects to place its stone in the back of the 4-foot circle of the house and the opposing team's stone as the centre guard, then the opposing team delivers the first stone of the end. If it opts for the reverse, then it delivers the first stone of the end."

In all my yrs watching & commenting on curling I've never heard a commentator go after an individual curler like Iron Mike Harris went after Johnny "Mo Morris . . . basically for abandoning Kaitlyn's stones when they're still 30 to 40 ft away from the house.
Kudos to Husky Harris for doing it - strong message to Mr. Morris.
Haven't seen aggravation like that since Fresca & Moose Turnbull trying to negotiate terms for property insurance on 1 of Fresca's 84 properties!! lol
Announcers usually shill or find a way to support odd thinking or play on the ice. When Jennifer Jones was going strange in the Olympic semi vs. Muirhead Joan Jett was vascillating between "there's no quit in Eve Muirhead" to "she's Jennifer Jones, and she just makes all the shots!" - - - - regardless of how weird Jones' rock positioning was in the last couple ends!
Most curling announcers and commentators know they're being paid to praise curling - not to tax it. Harris taxed John Morris last nite - refreshing!

Congrats to Morris and Lawes!
I thought Kaitlyn really showcased how good a curler she is, throwing last rock and making a ton of difficult pressure shots.

As a fully qualified armchair skip, I thought some of the strategy on this team was a little shaky and they were beatable, but it didn't happen. I'm less confident of this team's chances in the Olympics than our men's and women's team who have to be the favourites.

So now who curls with JJ in the Mb Scotties? Does it matter?

Local media speculated today that Lawes would play in next week's Manitoba Scotties - and even a slam event the week after.

Kinda precarious I'd say.

The Scotties for instance. Jones might slither in with a hot player like Lawes vicing - but then would have to replace her at the STOH. With who? I guess she'd be able to attach Einarson, Birchard, etc. to the squad if required.

Lawes should prep for the Olympics after that, if JJ forces her to play in Killarney.

Or Curl Canada should issue the edict.

Johnny Mo was yapping about shoulder problems - we all saw him bearing the athletic/healing tape on his arm. Perhaps that's why he was washing off on Kaitlyn's stones more often than not?
