You've got to hand it to the bods at the BWPPA, Britain's superb pool association for wheelchair players... They really know how to knock out a final match video - once again there's some very nice production value added to the recording of the first final of the year from the BWPPA's Dynamic Northern 9 Ball Open - and if you keep your eyes peeled there's a nice plug for Pro9 at the end... Now that never hurts!
I won't spoil it for you if you want to watch the final between Fred Dinsmore and Danny Luton, I'll just say congratulations to the pair of them, and especially to "the winner".

Today was one of those incredible days when you get a tonne of good work done, not everything done by all means, but a heck of a lot - if only all days could be like this.
I won't bore you with it all, I'll just bore you with this bit... I've gone mad, splurged on a Dymo Label Printer on eBay, nicked it with a last 3 seconds bid of £59.63 or something! Quite thrilling!
(Although afterwards, I checked the seller's product description, it said, "I've already got one of these and I received this one as a gift" - but it looks like he's sold three others already! There's a sucker born every minute eh? Still, I don't mind at all... The seller obviously has a bit of "character" but the price was right!
Next up, I need a super strong bicycle and a mid-sleeper bed!

Today we started the very soft launch of the Dynamic Billard banner... (that's right, there's only one "i" in Billard). This is just a stopgap banner until the main announcement at the start of next month, when I expect something more elaborate to appear (watch this space). Nevertheless, I'm really pleased to finally welcome Dynamic to the ever growing list of European pool billiard businesses who have come on board with Pro9 for 2012, and you can be sure we'll be keeping you informed with new opportunities coming your way from Dynamic for the rest of the year.
Just for posterity, here's what the top of the front page of Pro9 looked like today...
