With the final of the 2011 World Snooker Championships over we can now take a breath and wipe the sweat from our heads. If you can't get excited about world class snooker then your clinically dead, as a fellow tipster put it "I have developed a mild TV snooker addiction. The innuendos, the tension, the old timers, its brilliant!" At work we were reduced to watching live scoring updates of the final on the computer as several of us were riding the Wizard of Wishaw home to victory.
I'm sure I'm not alone in the fact that this tipping comp has made me take an increased interested in sports I wouldn't normally give the time of day. I just hope the City of Canada Bay Council don't check up on our Internet usage, the amount of time we have spent of the NHL, NBA and Snooker sites over the past couple of days would be massive.
Having to leave work as the Canucks entered overtime in game 7 of the playoffs was excruciating. I wasn't sure how I was going to last the trip home not knowing if "My Team" had made it through to the next round or not. Then the phone rings and the voice on the other end simply says "We are through!" Ah the relief! I'm still not sure what a Canuck is yet, but for the next couple of weeks they are my team!
There has been plenty of movement in the leaderboard after the addition of the snooker points. Like I said last post, all it takes is picking one winner and you are back in it, and on the flip side, if you miss that winner you will start to slide.
