RAMA, Ontario – So here we go... another Sunday final of TSN Skins curling, 25 years on and counting.

Terry Jones summed up last night's fascinating Battle of The Sexes here, and of course you followed our insta-blog coverage right here, right?

Team Kevin Martin is on the ice against Scotland's David Murdoch, and boy, do these guys have some history. At the 2009 worlds in Moncton, the Scots beat KMart not once, not twice, but three times including in the championship final, which featured the infamous Martin "no-throw" in the final end.

A few months later, Murdoch beat Martin again in the first semifinal at this here TSN Curling Skins Game, and went on to win the final, too.

Martin's biggest win over Murdoch came last February 20 at the Olympic Winter Games. At the halfway mark of the championship, the Canadians won the round-robin emphatically and Murdoch eventually had to play a tiebreaker, losing to Sweden's Niklas Edin.

So what will happen today? Just sit back and watch... on TSN TV in Canada, and right here if you are SOL.

Off-camera, KMart's broom was fired down the ice to him by his teammates, and it landed square on the button. The crowd erupted in cheers.

Game on!
