Scotland edges Canada in women's curling

Scotland edges Canada in women's curling SILKEBORG, Denmark - Scotland's Sophie Jackson scored one point in an extra 11th end in a 6-5 win over Canada on Tuesday at the world women's curling championship. The loss dropped Chelsea Carey's Calgary-based rink into a tie for seventh with Japan at 3-3. Carey appeared to be in control until Scotland tied the game with a deuce in the eighth end and took a 5-4 lead with a steal of one in the ninth. Canada forced the extra end with one in the 10th, but missed a chance to win when Carey's last shot was heavy. With the last shot in the 11th, Jackson cleared a Canadian stone off the four-foot ring to score the winning point.

John Bradley AKA Sam Just Compared the End of 'GoT' to the Red Wedding.
With the epic Battle of Winterfell out of the way, the countdown until the final episode of Game of Thrones feels close enough to induce a panic attack. Let’s be real; no fan will be happy to see the fantasy series go off the air. But will we at least be satisfied with the way it ends? In a new interview with Esquire, John Bradley (aka Samwell Tarly) hints that the end of GoT might not be what fans envisioned — but, on the plus side, it does sound dramatic. As for how dramatic, well, suffice it to say that Bradley compares the end of the series to one of the most infamous slaughters in GoT’s history: the Red Wedding.
