Well it's been my duty to report various things on this blog that have highlighted how professional snooker has failed to make the most of its great potential.
But today is arguably one of the best in the sport's history.
Stephen Hendry made his ninth 147 break. The iconic Crucible Theatre has had its World Championship contract extended. And Mark Selby and John Higgins served up a session of snooker of such quality that it had to be seen to be believed.
Credit to the players and the organisers for keeping so many entranced by what is shaping up to be one of the best World Championships there ever was.
