That’s quite enough blogging for one year.
In 2009 the blog had more posts, more comments and more readers than ever before.
It was sometimes right, sometimes wrong but always certain.
It’s also been fun despite the problems that have afflicted the sport. Ultimately, for all the political intrigue, for all that passions often get inflamed, snooker is only a game and being around the circuit and the people on it is first and foremost an enjoyable way to spend time.
Sometimes it’s exasperating too but we won't dwell on that right now.
Instead, I'd like to wish everyone reading this a very Merry Christmas, wherever you are and however you’re spending it.
There’s much to look forward to in 2010. With Barry Hearn now at the helm of the professional game there will doubtless be much happening and much to comment on come the New Year.
But it can all wait until then.
Right now it’s time to reacquaint ourselves of the true meaning of Christmas: fighting through crowds for last minute shopping, drinking copious amounts of alcohol and arguing with the family.
See you next year!
