Glossary entry for
Higgins, Alex

Alex "Hurricane" Higgins was a professional snooker player from Northern Ireland in the seventies and early eighties. He was very popular on television, and earned his nickname from the speed with which he was able to put the balls in the pocket during a game. However, like Georgie Best, he had a drinking problem and a bit of a temper, and this lack of self-discipline probably shortened his career.
