Time for the last big international competition of the season: the Ford World Men's Curling Championship!
The event runs from Saturday April 2 to Sunday April 10. Unlike the last world womens which was in Denmark, the world mens is in Canada this year, one time zone over so I might get to watch some of the games! Bring on the live tweeting! I'm a bit sad I can't be there because it is only one province over, but I think I've had enough curling excitement for one season!

PPG stands for page playoff game, yes? The big game will be Thursday night vs Norway I reckon. I'm picking a Stoughton/Ulsrud for the final.
