Snooker really seems to be making a comeback. When I was growing up, my folks would watch it all the time.
Alex ‘Hurricane’ Higgins, Jimmy ‘Whirlwind’ White and Steve ‘Interesting’ Davis all made this sport a must-see.
But over the years, the characters disappeared and the sport languished on Eurosport.
Now Judd Trump has been a breath of fresh air in the World Championship, if you pardon the pun! With little or no media training, what you see is what you get with this talented new boy.
He may have lost to John Higgins in the final, but he’s ripping up the baize and showing the establishment how it’s done.
