Heres hoping we actually get some snooker this year...but in the mean time, you know the drill by now.  MS Paint Shaun Murphy/Stephen Lee, Ding eating pies etc etc.

Arise Sir Bazza... well, almost. This is still less annoying than Lewis Hamilton getting a knighthood I suppose:

Remember the Masters is a week away, CaBbers! It's going to be behind closed doors. I had been tempted to get tickets and watch another chapter of the Ding-Ronnie bromance in the first round but didn't because I fucking knew this would happen:

I will never forgive Ding for not walking out to My Ding-A-Ling.

Also I hope that Ronnie grows his super villain 'tache back, needs to go full heel.

At The Masters the players will be shielded from viruses- and also from wasps:

Shoulders?-Stomach!

Each World Championship match to host a "wasp frame" to dismay of traditional supporters

Do the players ever get to leave Milton Keynes?

No.

Coincidentally, the murder rate there has increased dramatically recently.

I bet Mark Williams and Jackson Page never left Milton Keynes. Nando's every night. Nando's for Xmas dinner. I bet the staff even found them a stash of the limited edition Nando's gravy, out of date but fuck it, what doesn't kill you makes you more of a legend.

bet they were allowed to leave an' all, just couldn't be arsed now it was an option

Combing Strategies and coked up post-grad (need a better name for Lisowski as that doesn't really distinguish him from Trump) have tested positive. Out of the Masters.

Lebowski innit? He's hard to dislike even if he is a talented but utterly frustrating bottler.

Wilson wins this one for me, he's looking good.

Virgo's back from skiving off then.

The Bazza Shitlogos are also back! Did they have to quickly knock up a new one for Legend Gary Wilson?

EDIT: Yes they did:



Think this is supposed to be "The Warrior" vs "The Tyneside Terror". Brilliant. Kylo's is bad but Ledge's is the shittest one yet.

Oh totally. I bet Mark Williams phoned the missus and said "Sorry cariad, but if I cross the border I won't be allowed back for The Masters" before putting the phone down and high-fiving Jackson Page. And then ordering a couple of Naughty Natas.

Meanwhile AIDS is blaming his extra lockdown heft on "finishing Netflix and finishing Deliveroo". Did the bearded Welsh ledging tag team not invite him to join them at Nando's?

"The Tyneside Terror"

Surely a serial killer name.

They should have saved it in case Martin Gould one day moves to the north-east.

Yes, called it.

Blue Jam

Just put a whopping five quid on Wilson to win this thing outright, 11-2. Think this may be his year. He could meet Ronnie in the semis but Ronnie's been taking the piss lately.

Ronnie plays Ding on Wednesday. I bet he won't do that whole thing of refusing to concede despite needing ten snookers when he's up against lovely Ding.

druss

Don't know if it's partially due to the lack of crowds but this feels like the least inspiring opening set of matches of the Masters that I can remember.

Was Stuart Bingham this bulbous before lockdown? It's hard to tell. Scrutinising Stuart Bingham's appearance is something best avoided.

Anyway:



That's "Ball-Run" vs "F1", Bazza Shitlogo fans. Look at the way "147" has been incorporated into each design. Geddit? It's dead clever like.
