You were right there Michael on the night
Few, if any, however, could’ve predicted the manic majesty of what was to transpire when the two combatants returned to the oche after the first stanza. Put in this way, there was more than Wayne Mardle lost for words.
Watch “When Spasms Spoil Your Darting Dreams!” on YouTube
https://youtube.com/shorts/kvBN3jJ8T8E?feature=share I have long contemplated getting a Dart Board or, at the very least, dropped enough hints about same. So, most recently, the leading lady surprised me with one. As you’ll see within, spasms have played havoc with my initial attempts. So much that I haven’t managed to get a dart to stick to the…
It can’t be that easy, can it?
Regardless of what sporting activity one choses to focus on, the reality is that the form of participants therein can and does fluctuate from time to time. The thing is, with a team sport, if one player has an off day, there will be others to pick up the slack, in an individual pursuit, your…
Changing of the guard?
No matter where one looks, online or in other media outlets, there will be reference to the oddity that is the period between Christmas and the New Year. You’ve no clue what day it is, you’re just about sick of eating turkey but cake/pudding/sweets are still fair game. For someone like myself with whom mental…
Things you love to see
This is not my favourite time of year. But, like everything in life, that’s a bit of a contradiction. Some of the favourite sporting events of the entire year take place around now. An avalanche of horse racing and the World Darts Championship. The former of the two disciplines mentioned above will be dealt with…
It rains maximums as The Asp avoids Monster Mash!
It’s hardly any secret to anybody who has visited this space for any length of time that the last two weeks of every year are endured rather than enjoyed by yours truly. This was the case long before the boss checked out for the fireside above. But as I’m sure you’ll understand, everything is now…
Rocky sets up a Riot with dominant display
Earlier this week, in relation to players turning up to the Alexandra Palace laden down with expectations, the point was made that, regardless of any possibilities, producing on the greatest stage in the sport is another matter entirely. Or for most players it is. Evidently, nobody sent the memo to Josh Rock. The 21-year-old Antrim…
This Wizard got Christmas on the day he needed it
He may not quite be the Beard To Be Feared as much as he once was but the ever popular Simon Whitlock certainly lived up to the Wizard billing as he somehow extricated himself from what for very long periods looked a decidedly gluey situation against Christian Perez of the Philippines this afternoon at the…
A string to Willie’s bow as Brown drops down
A former inter county dual GAA player once said to me “There’s only one place to really judge a player’s character – Croke Park. I knew what he meant. For a golfer see Augusta National, anyone in National Hunt horse racing is judged by what they do – or don’t – at the Cheltenham Festival…
Big Boris back in the game and the Jackpot’s back on the table
One of the worst drawbacks to dealing with any sort of mental health issue is the instinct to want to self isolate. To go into onion mode. Get as many layers between you and the outside world as possible. Couple that with the most severe cold snaps we’ve had in these parts for a long…
