2010 Olympics open thread: Day 10

The big game is today: Canada takes on the United States (7:40 p.m. EST) in the Battle of the Colonies. The winner will take control of Group A and get a bye into the quarter finals, while the loser will have to go through the qualification round. Also on the table to rivalry Sunday is the Battle of the Bloc (Russia vs. Czech Republic, 3:00 p.m. EST), and the Battle of Scandinavia (Sweden vs. Finland, midnight EST). All in all, it makes for an exciting day in international hockey, with all five Ottawa Senators in action: Anton Volchenkov, Milan Michalek, Filip Kuba, Jarkko Ruutu, and Daniel Alfredsson.

The curling round robin continues today, as well, as both Canadian teams try to preserve their perfect records: The women are playing the USA and China, while the men come off a huge win over Great Britain to take on Switzerland.

Pop in and talk about all the games, and all the event in our open thread. Full Sunday schedule after the jump.
