Canadian men clinch 1st seed at men's World Curling Championships

1996 World champ Jeff Stoughton is sitting at 10-0 with one game left in the round robin and can not be caught for the top playoff spot.


Yeah that's right bitches.

To be clear, Canada has won half the men's World Championships since then, just not Jeff Stoughton.

Stoughton is attempting to become the first to go through the event with an undefeated record since fellow Winnipegger Kerry Burtnyk in 1995.


As everyone no doubt remembers, Kevin Martin won the gold medal for Canada at the Vancouver Olympics going undefeated.



Who is Canada's bitch when it comes to curling? Everyone, that's who.

Gold medal game is on today. Canada versus Scotland. Canada has already beat them twice but the Scots are a good rink. Can the Stoughton team sweep a third game?

The question of an undefeated tourney ended when Canada lost its final (meaningless) round robin game. The question today is Gold or Silver.

I'm thinking gold.

It starts at 5 pm local time (7 pm EST).

Damn. Canada had things lined up great in the 1st end but the Scottish skip makes a circus shot with his last rock to clear the house. Canada forced to take 1.

6-4 Canada after 8 ends. Except for the 3rd end, the Stoughton rink has been curling almost mistake free. Looking very good - but it's still close. Scotland has hammer.

Big mistake by Scotland on last rock costs themselves a point in the 9th. Should've had a deuce but only got the single.

Canada up 1 in the 10th with hammer. Let's bring it home hosers!!!
