Given the sheer volume of degenerates on SoSH, we must have some darts fans. The greatest sporting event I've seen live was Game 1 of the 2013 WS. The second was the PDC tour in Manchester last year.

The World Cup is on now, broadcast live on the PDC FB page:

If you haven't watched, you should.

I have nothing to add other than it's become a post-Winter Classic New Year's Day tradition to watch darts. The announcers' deliveries for 180s are as funny as the players' abilities are ridiculous

I really should get more into it

That is insane. Humans are really incredible. Give them enough time and motivation and they can figure out anything.

Yes. Yes I have.
Ah that's cool. It's the only time i have ever seen or heard Stephen Fry be linguistically challenged, and somewhat in awe and intimidated and yet happy as Larry all at once. I think Sid Waddell was Oxbridge educated so he wasn't just some raving Northerner. He left a huge hole when he passed.

Do not adjust your sets, Scotland have just won the World Cup!

To be fair, that's the 3rd time Anderson and Wright have made the Final, just this time they didn't come up against a juggernaut like Taylor/Wade in 2015 and Van Gerwen/Klaasen last year.

Missed this thread. Was a big darts fan in the D.C. area many years ago. Recall a cricket game against a friend and shooting second I went t20, t19, t18 in my first turn; t17, t16, t15 in my second; and never got another shot. There were times I could shoot about as well as some of the players in the tournament but I could not keep the level going anywhere near as long.

"Flight Club Social Darts" -- They had something like this in Northern Virginia (Crystal City) back in the late '70s/early '80s but not with that kind of food. It was more like a bowling alley for darts with 30-40 boards and meters you could feed money into.
