A new snooker term
I was watching snooker on TV with my son Ben. He was comparing snooker with pool, and commented that in snooker while the reds disappear once they were potted, the other balls, such as the yellow, green and black ‘re-spawn’.
Young people now have their own language, derived from the language in their computer games. The way he used the word was spot on in terms of what happens, those balls do, in game terms, ‘re-spawn’. But nobody of my age would have thought of putting it that way, whereas a twelve year old would.
I just wonder what Neil Robertson would make of it!
