It was a late night, with curling starting at 12:30am Chicago time.
The 2nd end, a Shuster miss and Edin with hammer made us come back down to reality. Down 0-2.
The 3rd, Tyler George with 2 great shots, and Edin near-miss and a Shu double takeout made us think – “Hey, there’s a chance.” Tied at 2.
The 4th, the measurement stick says USA – USA steals one for a 3-2 lead.
The 5th, “Slow down … slow down … hold on … damn.” Shuster’s rock slides through the house, and Sweden takes a 4-3 lead. What am I thinking at this moment? I’m hungry – I need a snack.
The 6th, “Wait … Edin doesn’t miss. Something is different today.” Shu hits a great draw for 2 … and the US reclaims the lead. #IBelieve.
The 7th. Edin misses with his first … but gets a point with his second shot. He’s looking more like Loki, and not like Thor. Just as Tretiak was off his game in 1980 … a chink in the armor … we have to take advantage of this.
The 8th. My wife and newborn are fast asleep. I want to run around the house, yelling and screaming, like I just won the Stanley Cup. I can’t believe what I’m watching.

I think I’m tearing up. Shut up.
The 9th. Don’t give up a lot. US playing conservative … gives up two. But we get the hammer back.
The 10th. They’re running out of rocks. We keep knocking them out of the house. 4 rocks left …. 3 rocks … Edin spin-a-rama … wonder why he … OH WAIT … WE WIN!!!!!
