I know that last time there was an Alex Higgins thread it turned into a rant fest.
So this is more general question, which I suspect will get very few answers-Aren't there a ton of sick and dying snooker players Joe O'Boye, the Francisco's, etc .
Suspect this will prove to be a thread to nothing but.......?

Alex Higgins is not in particularly good health, maybe he could be a candidate.

Higgins will outlive us all. He's 'beaten' throat cancer (probably no tumour could live long in that body) and is still smoking away. His booze intake is legendarily still the same as ever. And that's only the legal substances...

He OD'd on headache pills sometime in the 1980s, and somehow his liver managed to process them all and he recovered in days. Someone should get his DNA sequenced so we can see if immortality lies in his genes.

Should this be merged into the "Snooker NOT Alex Higgins" thread? (Or should I mind my own business? ;) )

Anyone up the current state of Kirk Stevens - golden boy turned coke sniffing has-been - of a couple of decades ago.

Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

As far as I can remember he is back in Canada, off cocaine, and doing the snooker exhibition circuit.

You can bet on that, Hurricane is no loser. He'll be around for many a year to torment all those who wrongly tormented him. Many of those will be long gone before him.

You can never put a good man or a real fighter down.

Who wants to put him on your sick list can dream on. Alex is here to stay for decades to come, snooker pro or not

57! I met him about 5 weeks ago, looks rough as anything, thought he was about 70! :)
