As Sundays go it is hard to top John Higgins', who watched his beloved Celtic win the SPL before booking his place in the Betfred World Snooker Championship quarter-finals.
Higgins, who is seeking a fifth title at the Crucible Theatre, thrashed English qualifier Jack Lisowski 13-1 - giving him a lesson on how to handle the big occasion.
And he will now face either Judd Trump or Ricky Walden for a place in the semi-finals for a ninth time.
With Ronnie O'Sullivan now out of the tournament alongside Mark Selby, the path is beginning to clear for Higgins to launch a serious assault on the title once again and the signs are looking good.
"I was watching at my apartment on Sky Go just before I was leaving. It was a good match, I arrived in a very good mood," he said. "I was happy to be 8-0 up but I thought Celtic should have won 8-0.
"I was very surprised but also, I know you are trying to stay professional and think you have to be ruthless and things, I felt for him a little bit.
"A few years ago I played Stephen Hendry here and I lost a session 7-1 or 8-0. It is the worst feeling in the world and the worst venue in the world when you are struggling."
Higgins moved 10-0 ahead early yesterday and, after Lisowski got on the board, he rattled in the highest break of the tournament - a brilliant 146 that so easily could have been a maximum 147.
A slight error on a red left the black impossible to pot and he instead settled for the pink, which allowed him to beat Ryan Day's 145 and put him top of the leaderboard with a score that could potentially earn him £10,000.
