Had the Snooker on as background noise last night. Ken Doherty waxing lyrical about O’Sullivan being “a great ambassador for the sport” yada yada yada
Cut to Ronnie’s post-match interview, I’m paraphrasing, but essentially it’s a car crash:
- He can’t really be arsed with Snooker, most of the time he’s ‘just slapping the balls around’.
- He’d rather be playing in Crawley, which although shit, on balance isn’t as shit as constantly getting harangued by
sad bastards fans on his way in and out of the Crucible Theater.
- He’s not surprised he’s still playing at the top level, most recent players are shite.
- He’d probably have to lose ‘an arm and a leg’ to fall out of the top 15
Cut back to the studio where Doherty now has to square his previous comments with his disgust at the interview.
😆 😆 😆
Clearly flustered, he finally lands on “he’s a great ambassador when he’s on the table, but his off-the-table comments shouldn’t be taking seriously as he’s probably joking anyway”.
😆 😆 😆
