So the 2008/09 campaign recedes into memory but there is still plenty to talk about in the coming months and I will, of course, be keeping this blog going.
After all, who wants to be lying on a beach in some far off sundrenched paradise now that the season is over?
Me, obviously, but them’s the breaks as Joe Davis may have put it.
The Jiangsu Classic takes place from June 3-7, the PIOS tour starts at the end of June, there is a big six reds event in Thailand in July and the World Series is likely to return the same month.
Away from all of that, each week I shall be posting a piece on a player now retired. This is not some nostalgic whimsy but an attempt to honour some of those who have played their parts in the snooker story, which will hopefully prove interesting to those new to the sport.
If anyone has any other ideas for posts, please feel free to suggest them.
