World Men's Curling Championship starts today in Las Vegas!

Schedule is HERE!

In Canada it's on TSN and in the US it's on something called the Olympic Channel with a few games on NBCSN. Some games are also available on the World Curling Federation's Youtube page.

Returning teams from the Olympics are Korea, Italy, and Sweden. No John Shuster although I'm sure he'll be there signing autographs. My man Brad Gushue is ready to kick some rear end!

Wow caught the end of this and Japan's shot to send the game to extra ends was pretty ridiculous.

e: To my untrained eye at least. The US took the match anyway.

Uh yeah that was a hell of a shot! He even got a high five from the American lead! Nice shot from the American to win the game in the extra too.

As a side note, Hammy McMillan Jr might be the funniest name I've heard in a long time.

It was a game with a lot of ridiculous shots that only had to be made because everything leading up to them was a mess. So, I guess it was pretty much standard US play :v:

Aoki made an almost identical shot again today against Sweden.

The "official" US viewing is on The Olympic Channel or NBCSN. The Olympic Channel website streams don't seem to require any type of login so, that's nice?

USA opened the game against Norway by giving up a steal of 2, but they tied it up and have now stolen a point in two ends to lead 3-2. That's a cool turnaround.

EDIT: And then they lose on a steal of two so, comme ci comme ša I suppose.

Disappointing showing, but Team Persinger totally beat themselves which is good I guess?

Gonna tune in to the China v Japan game and hopefully see Aoki pull off some more insane runbacks.

Canada may be 3-1 but Gushue is not curling well and not reading the ice well. They'll probably make the playoffs but barely beating Russia and Italy does not inspire a lot of confidence.

They're still on the same sheet, but due to the shittiness of the ice today the icemakers scraped and pebbled the ice at half time which never ever happens.
