Wow, great win! Saw highlights of the extra end and some of the Japanese shots were VERY close to backfiring. That's curling I guess.

At least Canada finally got a win before the tenth end. Sheesh.

These girls are very good, and Meguro is a much better skip than the one they had in Torino. Beat Germany and a medal is a real possibility.

That was hair-raising. The Russian skip made the wrong call with her last shot, in my opinion. Even at that, it was a tight come around and it looked like it was going to rub the guard. Great bit of sweeping, ladies!

I'm not going to miss this today, am I? Didn't see it, but I did see the last part of their game against Britain. Their last throw, I have to admit, was really good - knocked out the Brits and earned Japan an extra 5 points.

I had not realized curling had interested so many other then the Scottish being first at it, to the Americans.

It is a good thing to be in from a lead up to a skipper & simply ideal for Western Cdn farmers waiting for weather to start their Spring to Autumn chores.

So if Japan out-did Russia then good for them. Though I put in 10+ yrs of curling & can watch the game on TV with interest I am just amazed that others can as well.

Fortunately this is a game for Men, Women, or those retired to also mixed teams & always on artificial ice, not regular ice I learned on to also why I quit due to a schnook & the hours demanded. So often you are to another town or city to compete.

Women curlers are intelligent and sexy. Anna Ohmiya is my favorite.

Japan, now fourth in the standings, will take on Germany in its second game of the day.

Japan lost to Germany 7-6, no chance for medal.

The Russians must be pissed, having scored 9 points and still losing.

And the Japanese must be pissed, losing to Germany by 1 point.

Congratulations to the German team!

The German skip isn't the cutest skip in these Olympics, but she has a nice smile!
