What a tremendous performance by the U.S. team beating Sweden by a score of 8 to 7 on 11 ends.  Unfortunately, we have play Canada tonight.  Canada is thus far unbeaten in the round robin portion of the competition.

As a lad we had CBC channel 9 out of Windsor that we could get on our antenna.  When cable finally came through, they included channel 9 in their package of stations.  Not only did we get to see some great hockey, but we also got to see curling tournaments that used to go on for days on end.

Getting to see the Irish Rovers was also a lot of fun....he adds a little sheepishly.

My only problem with today's competition was with my countrymen who seemed to feel that the 3rd end was the most opportune time to begin chanting "U..S..A...", waving the flag, and wearing our flag as a cape....sans shirts.  C'mon folks.  This isn't the medal round.  The Swedes are not the old Soviet Union.

And in an arena where multiple matches are occurring, a bit of restraint is a good thing.
