It was one of those games where at times things seemed so right, yet they went so wrong.

It was a shoulda-coulda-woulda kind of day.

Frustrating for sure, especially for Rachel Homan's Team Canada, out of the Ottawa Curling Club, which ruled the Scotties Tournament of Hearts with its shotmaking prowess.

At times at this world women's championship in Riga, Latvia, Canada has looked every bit as good as it did in Kingston such a short time ago. But at times, Homan, Emma Miskew, Alison Kreviazuk and Lisa Weagle have looked merely mortal, minus their superwoman capes.

After a nailbiting 7-6 win over Italy's Diana Gaspari when some of us were just waking up Tuesday morning, Homan lost 8-4 to Sweden's Margeretha Sigfridsson.

It wasn't an 8-4 game. Homan was there every step of the way. She should have won. But with the score at 4-4, and with Sweden having the hammer in the final end, the Canadian skip tried to make something happen.
