Snooker loopy nuts are we. No, not Diary, but those lovable Cockney rogues Chas 'n' Dave and the many people who turned up to watch last month's Benson and Hedges Masters tournament at Wembley Conference Centre.
At the start of the event the centre's director of operations David Thomson (above, right) presented a special award to snooker's Jimmy 'Whirlwind' White for competing at the Masters for the 20th time. That was a cue for applause and some kind words for the man who's never been world champion, despite appearing in eight finals.
The Whirlwind didn't make it to the final (again), but he did achieve the highest break of the Masters tournament.
The final itself was a long drawn out affair and finished well after 1am. Diary thinks anyone who willingly stays up to watch snooker until that time really is loopy.
