ANNOUNCING – The Snooker Tournament
“I have a cunning plan.”

“Forgive me if I don't do a cartwheel of joy, your family's record in the department of cunning planning is about impressive as Stumpy Oleg McNoLeg's personal best in the Market Harbor marathon!”
~ Blackadder

“May the flowers bloom and the animals give birth.  Neither will save me from the depression I have to experience knowing that you have a brain and you choose to use it from time to time.”
~ kevg

Kevg and jmaxg proudly announce a NEW tournament!
Based on the age old British Raj game of “snooker”, this tournament  is intended for players to show skill AND knowledge………or maybe just skill……..that might work just as well.
The tournament is being formulated but basically, the scuttle is that you will have to participate, individually, in a number of  5 question random brainoffs to start BUT, you will be required apply a wee  bit of knowledge and a wee  bit of skill.
How that will happen will be explained in the first tournament post.  That will happen when JMK can schedule the tournament, of course.
First tests were promising with members liking the challenge as opposed to the actual brainoff as usual.
Will you like the challenge?  We don’t know yet.  But us two idiots think you might.
Anyway, keep your eyes open.  If agreed to, the tournament should be scheduled soon.

Not sure if it will work but we can only try !!

I played snooker once - was not a great success none of the itty bitty balls went down the holes.

Technical issues revolving around Facta Admin Person mean this may have to be put on hold for some time. Apologies for the delay.

Appalling display wasn't it. Still so long as they wear the right tie they are safe. After the debacle in Australia (last time) I thought they'd found the perfect solution, drop your best player cos the captain doesn't get on with him !!!! (that bit is sarcasm). Whatever else they may be the Aussies have the right idea, name your best team then name the captain.

Seems to be stuff rolling around the net that Afghanistan only started playing cricket in refugee camps. B******s, they've been playing cricket for best part of 2 centuries, since we went in to sort the buggers out the first time. With a lot more success than this pussyfooting shower could manage this time.

Afghanistan is a team?  Why shouldn't the United States be a team?

Ok. stop laughing.

Years ago, I heard ITALY wanted to present a team.  Not that I minded, but can you imagine the appeals?

Umpire:  "I know, I know.....less gesticulation please!"

Still, more emotion in cricket is not such a bad thing.  Is it?
