MY mate got both his ears pierced in the pub this week.
I did warn him not to stand next to the board when I was throwing darts.
To help give me an advantage, I bent his arrows when he nipped to the toilet. When he came back he threw a wobbler. The highest score you can get is 180. The other night I hit one with my first three throws. Which took my score down to 500. When someone first told me the rules, I thought it sounded insanely violent. I mean, taking legs off your opponent to win seems barbaric. But I love it and can’t wait for the start of the William Hill PDC World Darts Championships at Alexandra Palace, next week.
I went last year and was shocked by the number of beer bellies, mullets and dodgy tattoos on fans in the crowd. And that was just the ladies.
The tournament this year seems more wide open than ever now 16-time champ Phil Taylor has retired.
I once played a match against “The Power” and he was angry for months after I put superglue on his darts.
I replied: “You just can’t let it go can you?”
Outsider Rob Cross rocked the sport by winning the tournament last year but he has been nowhere near as good since.
Michael van Gerwen and Gary Anderson will be the ones to beat but I reckon Grand Slam champ Gerwyn Price could get close at big odds of 33-1. BETTING TO WIN WORLD CHAMPS – (William Hill) – Michael Gerwen – 11-8 Gary van
Wright Anderson – 10-3 Peter
– 14-1 – 10/1 Michael Smith Mensur Suljovic – 22-1 Rob Cross – 22-1 Gerwyn Price – 33-1 Adrian Lewis – 66-1
POINT MADE: Gerwyn Price
