2010 Olympics open thread: Day 8-9

Up for discussion in today's open thread? Friday's prime-time matchup: The upstart Latvians, led by AHL star Kaspars Daugavins, take on the defending Olympic bronze-medal winners from the Czech Republic, featuring Milan Michalek and Filip Kuba. Plus, Jarkko Ruutu and the Finns take on the Christoph Schubert-less German National team; what will they do without his breakaway prowess?

But I might be more excited to see Canada take on Denmark in both men's and women's curling.

EDIT: Plus everything on Saturday.
