World Men's: Game 6 v France

Tom Brewster, Greg Drummond, Scott Andrews and Michael Goodfellow lost to Thomas Dufour's French side, with Tony Angiboust at fourth stones, at the World Men's Championship in Basel. Down 3-4 in the tenth, the above graphic shows the position as Tom went to play his (unsuccessful) last stone. Scotland has the yellow stones. Angiboust has just played the guard at the top of the graphic after Tom was too long with his first draw. But you can replay the whole end here!

Scotland has four wins and two losses, and is in fourth place in the rankings. Canada, skipped by Glenn Howard, is undefeated in seven games.

This is what the armchair curling enthusiast (aka curling nerd) does on a cold windy Tuesday afternoon. One half of the laptop screen has the shot-by-shot from the CurlIT site of the Scotland v France game. And on the other side of the screen I'm watching and listening to the coverage of the Canada v Denmark match on the Eurosport Player. Who says men can't multitask!
