Farewell to Waddell - The Voice of Darts

#1
I'm distraught at the loss of Sid Waddell, the (more or less) Geordie Voice of Darts, whose inimitable bollocks (Cambridge degree or not) set the lowbrow seal on many a bleary-eyed night in my youth, before collapsing onto the pit after a piss-up in the NAAFI, or wherever. Gems I remember include "Eric Bristow, the preying (sic) mantis, preying on another opponent" and "Wee Jocky Wilson - ah, he knows every trick in the book". Quite what 'tricks' you can play in a game of darts, other than outright cheating - or perhaps farting violently as your oppo lines up double-top to win - we will now never learn, as Sid has gone to the great 180 in the sky.
