Here’s a funny one. I’ve always wondered about snooker, just how international a sport it is. Most of the “world” champions are British, with a small mix of top players from other commonwealth countries – Canada, Australia etc. But, you know, you certainly get a feel that the title should be UK rather than World.
I always felt the same about Anerican Football. They always call ’em World Champions, but since the sport is only really played in the USA…
What does this have to do with anything? I hear you ask. Well, the guy below just won the COVID-delayed 2020 snooker “world” championship. It only happened a week ago, so I remember seeing some on tv. I stopped watching when it was time for a cuppa – it was more entertaining to watch the water boil. But his name is Ronnie “The Rocket” O’Sullivan.
