End 6: Feeney just used "the hammer" to great effect. Got the rock right in the tube.
End 7: Sweden with the hammer this time. "Nerves of Steel!" - Out comes the third man! Triple brush! "No go! No go!" The United States enjoys a 3 point lead.
End 8: The CNBC announcer, whose name I don't know, is an ex curling player. His commentary is entirely made up of second guessing or agreeing with the US strategy. Since you can hear everything that every curler says, it gets pretty annoying. If you could only hear the commentary, it would sound like total nonsense. "Good idea," "Bad Idea," "Nooooo," and so on. US up 4-3.
End 9: One of the broomers kicked a rock, and Sweden gets to put it "Where they thought it was." Talk about playground rules! It doesn't help and the US is up 6-3.
End 10: US wins. The Men's team is holding up their brooms in victory.
