VICTORIA — There were days, way back when, that Canada came to the world curling championships and played on a different planet than everybody else.

That hasn’t been happening lately. In fact, you have to go back to 1995 to the last time a Canadian team ran the table at the Ford World Curling Championships.

But Brad Jacobs’ Soo Crew, so far, have been playing in a world of their own — and have been since the last four days of the Edmonton Brier.

“It’s really fun out there. It’s hard for me not to smile,” Jacobs said after taking care of Switzerland 7-2 in an afternoon draw in which Sven Michel shook hands after eight and left the ice shaking his head.

“After their lead, they made everything,” said the Swiss skip. “They left us with so many difficult shots.”
