Anyone enjoy playing or watching darts?
Is anybody else watching the BDO Lakeside World championships?

Santa brought me a darts board which lives in/can be attached to the brew shed.

Looking forward to the lighter evenings and warmer weather.

I need to get myself a new dart board as my last one went mouldy in during winter in an old shed a few years ago.

Definitely a lot easier to watch than play, or play well.

I got a few trophys about 25 years ago. Nowt special just the pub circuit, more of a laugh than anything but I was pretty good. Can hardly see the board these days. My mate and me applied to go on Bullseye but we didn't even get a reply! I must be even uglier than I thought. Don't watch darts so much these days, it's gone all 'wrestlerised' but I don't doubt that the standard of play is as high as ever.

And I thought you're a 20 something old. But we might have already talked about that before

The BDO is poor compared to the PDC , and the coverage is crap compared to sky, loved playing Friday night darts when I was late teens and early twenties, don't bother now , remember when I was a kid living with my grandparents, had a dartboard put on the settee, enjoying chucking the darts while watching Wilson,Lowe, Evans and Leighton Rees
