For those with sports withdrawals. Snooker seems to be providing some respite.

In Gibraltar of all places. A little rock next to the fully quarantined Spain. Some matches not having referees.

Winner stays on, one shot carry and 50ps on the table?

Oh the fucking irony of how lush it would be to spend the quarantine watching hours and hours of beautiful men and women playing beautiful snooker.

Northern Snooker Centre is open so if anyone fancies a frame (I play pool not snooker so I'll be shite) let me know.

Hopefully the alien tech he has in his shed might provide a lessening of the cancer's effects.

He should isolate himself in his shed.

Nah, this is sad news and worrying that he's in Spain where Covid-19 is spreading rapidly right now.

I laughed fondly at the alien tech post.

Apparently a bit of a twat on many levels but I can't find it in my heart to hate him. Get better and be a living twat instead of a dead one you shiny squeak King.

Let's make Willie the Lada Classic of our hearts.

Surprised it's taken this long to announce tbh. It's going to be a weird May Bank holiday without snooker.

Watching the 2019 UK Championship final on Eurosport. Stephen Maguire vs lovely Ding. Mention of Pukka Pies from the commentators.

Eurosport > BBC.

Head's up that Snooker 2019 is half price on Steam - £14.99 is pretty good! The gold edition is also half price.

Uncanny valley snooka style!

...and so my own Snooker Safari at the Mercure hotel bar begins in August.

I don't see that happening without the knowledgeable Crucible crowd down to maybe a quarter of its usual size, and nobody wants that, do they?

The email I got from Sheffield Theatres about my tickets and the rescheduled dates says there may be a reduced crowd, or none at all, and in that case they'll be issuing refunds or transferring tickets to the 2021 tournament. Re-booked the hotel just in case because they gave us an automatic refund for the first dates we booked and they seem to be very understanding about all this virus malarkey.

It'd be so sad if they had to play behind closed doors. Would they put a load of mannequins in football shirts and dot them around the auditorium?

They'll need a Coventry City top and some 'VEGAN' t-shirts.

kit them all out with earpieces and have some canned laughter for when a commentator makes a quip, so they can keep doing the cutaways

Hey Blue Jam - do you know if there are available tickets or is just those who booked previously?

They've rescheduled all the dates so all tickets are valid for the new dates, but they are also offering refunds so I'm sure there will be some returns.

Oh fuck, that smells of a potential commentator role in the future.

His commentary is appalling.
