I think it was Brendan Moore who got the hump with me once in a hotel bar. But I was so drunk, it might've been Paul Collier, I can't really remember.
What did you do?
This was at the English Open at Manchester.
I'd got back to my hotel from the Semi-Final at about half-ten, and asked if the bar was still open. I intended to have one drink before going to bed.
Anyway, I got talking and it was suddenly getting on for 2am. I'd done a good job of ignoring the fact that the referees were all sat at a table drinking. But as I was going to bed, I saw said referee, and went; "You're up a bit late, aint ya? Aint you got work tomorrow?" Anyway, he didn't see the funny side, and said rather angrily; "What did you say?" I bottled it a bit, and went; "Naaah, sorry mate. Just having a joke. Sorry, I've had a drink. Sorry, sorry." And hurried off.
