Alex Higgins died. In my snooker loving youth I used to watch the Hurricane blowing people out on the green baize but he has blown his last. I was never a fan of his though, I liked Davis and Jimmy White but I used to admire the way Higgins flew round the table when at his best. The fact that he lasted till his 61st birthday is a bit of a miracle in itself in my opinion with the booze, drugs and finally the cancer to deal with. So long Hurricane!
