With the top spot clinched, a spotless record, and a seat in the semifinals, Kevin Martin and company found the motivation to defeat a struggling and desperate American rink 7-2 on Monday at the Vancouver Olympic Centre.

Martin and his teammates John Morris, Ben Hebert and Marc Kennedy clinched their eighth straight victory after stealing a point from the U.S. team in both the sixth and seventh ends.

Curling Joke

Avid curler from Winnipeg passed away and is met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter.

The man asks, “St Peter, curling has been a big part of my life. I hope they have curling in heaven?”

St Peter replies, “Yes, we have a fine facility. Let me show you.”

They walk a little and enter into the curling club where the man sees a lone person practicing. The man is wearing a Canada jersey with the red maple leaf and the name Martin on the back.

The man from Winnipeg says. “I didn’t know Kevin Martin passed away?”

St. Peter replied, “No, that’s God , he just thinks he is Kevin Martin!”
