Players Championship

The final event of the Capital One Grand Slam of Curling, the GP Car and Home Players' Championship, gets underway in Grande Prairie, Alberta, today, and runs through to Sunday.

Scottish interest is in Eve Muirhead, Kelly Wood, Lorna Vevers and Annie Laird. This is likely to be the last major event for the current European Silver Medallists, as attention becomes focussed on the next Olympic cycle. We'll certainly miss this lineup on the ice.

The Players' Championship is two sixteen team triple knockouts for men and women, with eight qualifiers from each going to quarterfinals. Muirhead is up first against Rachel Homan's team. You can find the results here.

And for something completely different you have to check out this new advert for a certain disposable razor, here, or click on the image below.

It would have made a good April Fool, but I am assured it's legit. You have to wonder what people who work in advertising are on!
