World Darts Championship - Lakeside

#1
I've been watching every minute of these championships this week and it's been amazing. Anyone else watch the final this evening?

Two 50 year olds, neither had won the title before. Best of 13, Wolfie, world number one lead 6-0 at the interval, required one more set to win, Nixy, playing worse than pub darts then won 6 straight to level tthe final at 6-6....... Wolfie held his nerve to snatch it 7-6..... brilliant stuff.

Yes it was a great match.

Don't know what all the bracelets, rings and sh1te are all about though!
Probably to weigh their chucking hands down so they don't put the lights out with arrows missing the board!

100,000 pints of ale in a weeK, and that's without Jocky Wilson!

Bear in mind there were a lot of Dutch fans there as well. Might explain the vast amount of pints sold there. (don't know if they served drugs though :giggle: )

I started this thread to celebrate the sporting prowess of Wolfie and Nixy and everyone's turned it into a jewelry and Dutch beer fest! Do none of you know the meaning of sport?

By looking at the beerguts of most darters, i wonder what came first in their lives; darts or beer...
I just can't see those 2 things apart. Darts goes with beer and vice versa.

I love the entire naffness of the darts scene. The cornyness, bling, razzamatazz, the lot. Far more entertaining than the blandness of Beckham and Chelsea put together.

Chavs who have won far more than I have earnt over the last 2 years, just for throwing pointy sticks at a corkboard. (link here)

By the way, van Barneveld has earnt all of his winnings in the last 12 months!

Sorry don't have earnings for those in the Second Division of Darts (BDO) :thumright:

While the BDO World Final was full of drama, it had a long way to go to eclipse the spectacle of the "Greatest Game of Darts Ever Televised" that occurred in the rival PDC World Championships Final on 1 Jan 07 between Phil "The Power" Taylor and Raymond "Barney" van Barneveld (Barney won by the way)

Was Frank Swann playing? He's the right shape and has all the bling.
