Shaun Murphy, the snooker player, claims to have hit a 147, a 9 dart leg and a hole in one.

Its an interesting brag - the 147, well yes he is a pro snooker player. Hole in one - that can be fluked. but a 9 darter as well? He claims it was after a couple of years of going down the pub too much and that what he did

I have been down the pub since I was 15 so 44 years and I have never hit a 9 dart finish

My great friend, Jo, is doing the London Marathon at the tender age of 67. Told her to use a wheelchair. That bird has just done it in 90 mins. Jo will be lucky to beat a bloke carrying a fridge.
