Still tense as fuck, even after all these years.

Me Dad and Dr Oetker’s finest sat here sober staring at Egg Wallace talk about tea and wondering what the fuck.

Looking forward to watching this when I get back home at 6pm (Canada time). Yesterday's Trump dominance. I'm expecting a Higgins fightback today.

I do hope you're watching the 2011 final.

Watched it again - didn't mean to but it's like Die Hard on Xmas Eve - you just get sucked in. I watched this LIVE in hospital - the entire children's ward were up watching it on a TV in the nurse's break room. It is in the top 10 best night's of my entire life. My family are irish so of course I wanted Taylor to win, but I'm also a ginge and loved the idea of one of US being a sporting behemoth.

Anyway, an enjoyable final and Trump was great, but I do feel a little like they have manufactured this idea of a 'best ever' final. Yeah, amazing high breaks, and Trump is LEDGE and fuck me almost two 147s. But it was a real cunt off with little stakes for anyone other than those Higgins monsters and that Human Centipede of shit boyband check suits.

Well, quite. I also don't see how anyone could ever say a final which ended half an hour into the fourth session could ever be described as the best ever. Once Trump pulled ahead its spectacle as a contest evaporated. There wasn't even any kind of sustained comeback to keep it interesting. Just amazing displays of skill isn't enough to make it a classic match.

Was good as it was a player breaking through to another level in the most important time and way versus one of the games greats. Andy Murray's first Wimbledon win springs to mind.

Even though the result wasn't close it was kept tense by the prospect of the quality of his opponent and the lingering threat of mentally capitulating.

I kind of checked out during the semis actually. Trump and Selby as the top non-Ronnies is a bit Corporate Snooker but they are super players and they should have a nice little rivalry for a few years.

Looking forward to Day 3 of the final. Couldn't find a stream of Day 2 last night so will pay subscription fee today.
