Watched a 25-dart leg yesterday. I 'literally' could do better than that.
I lived in Leamington, the home of Steve Beaton. We were going to be student wack-wacks and stalk him but we never got round to it.
Here endeth the anecdote to end all anecdotes.
RIP Sid Waddell :(
Still love watching it like because there's something special about it that I can't put my finger on. When a jobbing plumber wins it one year and then gets smashed in the first round the next, you know it's reached a low ebb.
Jelle Klaasen's not set the PDC alight yet has he?
Also - what happened to Colin Monk?
got whooped in straight sets by justin pipe, iirc
think colin's retired now.
jelle klaasen hit the news recently for sending a picture of his dick to a fifteen year old girl, still nonchalantly uses 'sex on fire' as his walk on.
some BDO players have jumped ship successfully, gary anderson, robert thornton, simon whitlock, mervyn king and MVG have all won PDC majors over the past few years. dave chisnall qualified for this year's premier league too.
of the current bdo lot, only waites and bunting are any good really.
Yeah all the good BDO crowd eventually jump ship. Can't blame them.
Martin "Wolfie" Adams not enough of a draw these days either then? Also - has Ted Hankey retired? New Year isn't New Year until I see The Count™ in action (and normally taking copious amounts of deserved stick).
he had a stroke last year, think he's ok now though.
martin adams was crap last year as he went through personal troubles, seems to be back to his best of picking up an easy cheque though.
had some personal problems that have affected him, I think.
ted's in the PDC these days although he hasn't done much of note, suffered a mini stroke in the grand slam a couple of years ago on stage which put him out for a while, but he did well at one of the recent tournaments. darts needs ted back at his best, a true pantomime villain
Pantomine villain he may be, but at his best he's also a fearsome performer at the oche. When he's in a rhythm he's always lovely to watch. Very smooth, consistent arrers.
like watching a pendulum in motion
I don't like players who make too big a deal out of throwing a dart. Nice and smooth please. Thanks.
Got a bit of time for Whitlock's weird action mind.
When Alexander of Macedon was 33, he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer. Eric Bristow is only 27.
as I haven't got Sky so it's the one of the only darts things I get into
even I can see they are pretty poor though, watch it for Bobby George and the commentators really 'double 8 NOOOO double 4 good marker, WHOOOOOOOO, hot the 4 he'll be back for double 2'.
Having watched a pretty intense PDC final in the week, the contrast was pretty stark
Unsullied by sky's money, or the absolute BERKS to be found attending at Ally Pally
just looks like a proper darts venue, don't it? Just looks like somewhere darts should be played. Every year. Always a nice sounding buzz even when every leg's an 18 darter.
The stuff on Sky looks all garish and crap to my eye.
looked decent in the uk open last year when he played as an amateur
