Worlds 2021

I'm a bit disappointed that this USA Curling forum hasn't fired up this week. We have legitimate chances in both Women's and Men's for gold. Not the favorites, but a real chance.

Add to that the importance of a Top 6 finish to qualify for the Olympics.

Shuster and his team just had a huge day with two quality wins. We haven't won Men's Gold since 1978. I hope everyone is excited.

One win away! Denmark tried to play spoiler but Shuster took care of business. Shaky 7th end led to an opportunity for Denmark to get four but they only got one.

Leaderboard says "Shuster Q". I like that.

1978 was 43 years ago. I checked with a calculator. That team was Bob Nichols, Bill Strum, Tom Locken and Bill Christman. That team also had Duluth/Superior roots.

Strategy

Wasn't a huge fan of Shuster's strategy in last night's Ned game... Thought the 5th should have been blanked and retain hammer for the 6th.
Also thought End 1 could have been played way cleaner. They got by with a win because of missed Ned shots.
That will work against lesser competition, but not against the teams they'll face in the semis!

Shuster played exactly the strategy you should use playing against weaker competition. Blanking ends only helps the weaker team. Weaker teams love shortening the game by blanking ends.

The manufactured deuce in the fifth was a thing of beauty.

It was in the old Winnipeg arena and wasn't called the Worlds it was the Air Canada Silver Broom and the trophy was actually was made of silver and looked like a corn broom. Coolest trophy ever.
If I recall correctly one of the Americans-lead or 2nd--slid out on his knee, not his foot.

So I’ve been hanging out in the main thread, not the USA specific thread….

1) not that decruz is easy, but nice to dodge Canada and Sweden on our side of the bracket

2) Hamilton’s hair is glorious
