"Outside of a dog, a book is a man's best friend. Inside of a dog it's too dark to read." - Groucho Marx (1895-1977)


Farewell to "The Hurricane"

Alex Higgins, one of the greatest snooker players ever has died.
He attracted so many to the sport with his unique style....bold, brash, eccentric and exciting...he would reach the table ready for play and whip off his dickie bow, undo his top button and light up a cigarette...and do it all in double-quick speed.
He has suffered for so long with throat cancer and was down to six stone in weight recently, if a positive can be taken it's that he has been released from his suffering.
He'll be talked about for many years to come...and will always have his place in sporting folklore, may he rest in peace...
