snooker players

Happy Birthday snooker player John Higgins born on May 18th 1975 in Wishaw. 

Higgins burst onto the snooker scene in the 1994/95 season, becoming the first teenager to win three ranking events in one season. For this he earned an amazing £283,970. 12 times more than he earned the previous season. the 1998 season he won the the first of his four World Championship and at the end of the season he received player of the Year award.

He has won 28 ranking titles, including three UK championships and two Masters titles, making him one of the most successful players in the modern history of the sport. His records include  the first player to compile four consecutive century breaks in a major tournament: 103, 104, 138 and 128, in Preston 2005. He achieved the feat in the final of the 2005 Grand Prix, against Ronnie O'Sullivan, he is one of only five players to win both the World Championship and the UK Championship in the same year.

In September 2010, Higgins was cleared of match-fixing allegations made against him by UK newspaper News of the World. He admitted to bringing the game into disrepute though, by not reporting an approach to throw games. Because of this he was banned for six months, backdated to May 2010 when he was originally suspended. In addition he was fined £75,000.

This year Higgins became one of only 4 men in their 40s have played in a world final at the Crucible, he looked to be cruising to victory in the event and was 10–4 ahead after the second session, He then lost 12 of the next 14 frames and ended up losing the match 18–15.

In February 2010, Higgins and his wife Denise appeared on ITV’s Mr. and Mrs. and reached the final after answering 9 questions correctly out of 9 to win £30,000. They donated the money to The Dalziel Centre – a day hospice for cancer patients, based at Strathclyde Hospital in Motherwell, of which Higgins became a patron after they cared for his terminally ill father.

Will The Real Anthony McGill PLEASE Stand Up??? (when you’re done with that shot)

A while back a well known Twitter personality saw the above tweets and concluded that a reputable Scottish sports journalist working for a reputable publication had suddenly decided to turn his professional Twitter into a celebrity tattler and reveal an ongoing romance between a television actress in a series being filmed in his country, and his friend Tony McGill. Much digging about on the Internet revealed that this actress did indeed know a man named Tony McGill (a music producer for a small label and co owner of a bar in London) and with much fanfare a new sector of the Outlander fandom was born.
A while back I saw those same tweets and concluded that they had to have been a joke. How would a sports writer even know this Tony McGill? He is not a sports figure, but perhaps they are personal friends. But why make a public joke about a personal friend on a professional Twitter feed?? It was all very confusing, but probably not as confusing to me as it was to the journalist, who got slammed by Outlander fans.
But it turns out that this journalist does know Tony McGill-he’s just not the same Tony McGill the actress knows.
The journalist’s Tony McGill is a well known ginger snooker player and a perfect target for a sports writer to joke about on his professional Twitter to plug a TV show in which the handsome male lead character happens to be a ginger.
So looks like it WAS all a joke after all, and aimed at a very well known sports figure by a sports writer- not the reveal of a celebrity romance. But the joke is really on you Purv, for not getting your Tonys straight!!

anonymous asked:

Go look at Purv's Tumblr She showed the photos Scarlett posted don't show Cait, just Sam and she posted more DMs from people who insist Tony was there. She also did a two part thing showing Gerry Braiden wasn't talking about the red haired snooker player and she tagged you. one of Tony's friends follows Cait on her Twitter! This guy isn't in Cait's circle of friends, he is only Tony's friend, so why would he follow Cait? Can you go look and tell me what you think.

Nope.  Don’t care what she has to say.
