I love the Snooker Champ's as it is all about the mental toughness and stamina... Gold Cupesque one might say..
No surprises who I am going for the greatest player to ever put chalk onto a cue... Ronald Antonio O' Sullivan 5/1... a.k.a The Rocket,147 master, genius, the best we have ever seen.. the legend..
I think this year he will be at his most competitive and I really hope he goes and wins.. and comes back next year to equal Hendry's 7... either way he is by far the greatest we will ever see.. and you only have to look at tournament's he does not enter.. half full not even half.. when he plays the tickets are like gold dust.. I love him as what he done 5/6 years ago is just mind boggling to win it.. take a year off!! and come back and defend it and win it like... yeah it's a piece of piss really.. is just so.. so cool.. he is the best.. Alex was good.. Jimmy was electric.. but Ronnie you are the one who broke the mould and turned the game on it's head.. nearly 800 century's... 14 maximums... 6 uk's, 7 masters, 5 world's.. and many other ranking tournaments.. amazing.. I know a guy here in Ireland who paid him a great complement.. in the early 90,s you could become pro by paying for your card.. but you also had to qualify.. so all these young lads from Eire jumped on board the boat over to Blackpool to play.. and some of them done ok and some not so good... but this guy said all their dreams were smashed when a young kid from London came and played that summer of 1991.. he won 73 of 75 matches... he was...
Ronald Antonio O' Sullivan.. so they soon realised if he is that good now.. what is the point of going pro or even trying... so sadly a lot of those guys ended up just packing the game in.. hence that is why Snooker is dying a death here in Dublin.. it's on it's knees..
I hope you go and win Ronnie as you are defo one of my sporting Heroes!!
