    Does anyone remember the days when their girlfriends asked how we could watch people just running round on a pitch and find it intresting, and how we can't appreaciate skill, and cool collectiveness. Then when we watch snooker and they say it's boring <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I wouldn't be able to watch more than a frame or so at a time, and I still don't know how the scoring works, but that's not the point! <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    my mum's bf really likes it but personally, i do not see the attraction!
    it was really silly the other day when it was on, the commentator person said "stop russeling the sweet papers please" that was so funny cos that was really sad!! lol

    It <STRONG>is</STRONG> boring. Hence the low viewing figures and lack of back page coverage.

    Big Up to Peter Ebdon tho'

    i got really annoyed that there was something going on up in the audience and the camera did not show what.

    it would have added excitement to the game. <IMG SRC="biggrin.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Great sport, don't watch a whole match but highlights and the later rounds are excellent, skill on a stick! <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    I was hoping Ebdon would win and what a performance, i can't believe how easy they make it look <IMG SRC="eek.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> very talented people <IMG SRC="smile.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    They must train like bitches, what I don't understand is why do players get worse when they are older, what part of their skill deteriorates from the age of 35 onwards?

    In the case of snooker the component of fitness that would most affect the game by deteriating in old age would be hand eye co-ordination.

    For the most part, it's a mildly interesting game. But when it's 17-17 in the final frame, with Ebdon leading by 54 with 59 left of the table...yeah, it's pretty exciting. <IMG SRC="redface.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">

    Well i actually really like snooker <IMG SRC="redface.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Its probably because my dad used to be a semi-professional player, he gave it up but still plays locally so i kinda got brought up with it.
    I always watch the snooker on tv even tho my mates totally take the piss <IMG SRC="rolleyes.gif" border="0" ALT="icon">
    (waits for abuse about being a sad loser <IMG SRC="tongue.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> lol)

    Snooker is brilliant once you get into it, but I only ever watch the World Championships - it's something special. I missed kost of this year's though cos I'm at uni <IMG SRC="frown.gif" border="0" ALT="icon"> Watched the final session of the final though - that was pretty special.
