ha, I bet you didn´t expect that!
To be honest , up until a couple of years ago, I couldn´t have cared less about it. OK, I had heard of a few snooker players, but I never would have thought it interesting enough to actually sit down and watch it.
That was until my husband was sitting there one night watching the World championship and I think it was Ali Carter playing, I was playing something on the computer, and casting an occasional glance towards the TV, and I really got sucked in. Not that I had any idea what they where doing, but the way they where playing one safety after another it was really faszinating to watch, And that was it, I admit I was hooked.
Nowadays, I have familiarised myself with the lingo, so I actually know what the commentators are talking about, and I can more and more appreciate the beauty of the game. And I watch every match I can. Last year it even went as far as telling my boss that I was coming in late for the night-shift, because I wanted to watch the end of a session. That was definitely something I had never done before in my life!
Which was not too much of a problem, because a couple of months before, the men all came in late because they had to watch Germany play at the Football World Cup.
So at the moment, I am watching Marco Fu play Mark Selby, and it is a lot of fun as usual.
It´s just a shame that Ronnie O´Sullivan is out already….
Ah well, better make the most of it,
See ya all later 😉
