Screwing the Pink

Yeah, that got you're attention didn't it?

But we're talking about snooker here and in particular we're talking about the World Snooker Championships which kicked off this weekend in Sheffield. Sheffield is apparently 'Snooker City'. Fair enough, that city had to be known for something and snooker is about as good as it's going to get quite frankly...

Before we get to the results so far allow me to point out that the far from enticing image your see to your right, is of a streaker at last years World Champs. And yes, that streaker was the highlight of the entire two weeks. That's how great snooker is man, a fat naked dude makes it more watchable.

Anyways, here are the first round results so far:

John Parrott (Eng) bt Steve Davis (Eng) 10-9

Matthew Stevens (Wal) bt Joe Delaney (Irl) 10-2

Peter Ebdon (Eng) bt Nigel Bond (Eng) 10-7

Anthony Hamilton (Eng) bt Marco Fu (Hkg) 10-3

Ian McCulloch (Eng) bt Graeme Dott (Sco) 10-7

Ronnie O'Sullivan (Eng) 10-2 Ding Junhui (Chn)

Barry Hawkins (Eng) 9-10 Fergal O'Brien (Ire)

Notables so far: There have been no upsets so far, Last years Champ (Dott) is out and Ronnie O'Sullivan is up for it big time.
