A few people haven’t had teams play yet, so those standings are pending. I’ve included here points per game to give people an idea of how their teams are performing given the draw set-up of the round robin.

Some of my thoughts on today’s day of curling:

-Elephant in the room: Team America (both) sucked it today. Women got spanked while the Men got outplayed by the crazy pants (and a bit of Shuster still not cutting it). But I have hope yet!

-Sweden (M) took the day by storm, while Canada (M) recorded a loss on their second draw. GB (M) came out firing only to get stomped by Sweden. Is Sweden the dark horse this year? Or just off to a quick start? This week will tell.
