World Champions!

Congratulations to Scotland's Men's National Curling Team who late last night triumphed over hosts Canada to win the World Championship. Aye We Did!

And a big congratulations also to Argentina's Angel Cabrera who last night clinched The Masters title in golf after a tense play-off in Augusta, Georgia. Cabrera is no box standard golfer. Born into poverty, and abandoned by his parents, he started from the bottom up , making ends meet by caddying his way around golf course from the age of ten to become South America greatest ever golfer. And did you see these Celtic fans in kilts on that final green, as Angel holed the winning put? I don't know who they were or how they got there, but I'd like to think via the Calton. How approriate!

And a final thought for Master's runner-up, the USA's Kenny Perry, who had he won, aged 48, would have been the oldest ever winner of a Major. He just missed out, but showed the world how to lose with dignity. Kenny, I hope your day will come, but you were a winner in my eyes anyway.

Now to Wembley with the Toffees!
