John Bullseye . . .

 All this flag shagging on social media has unearthed within me a hitherto unknown #501Nationalism within my inner self.

From now on, I'll have a patriotic lump in my throat every time I score a 26.

The Bad Luck of the Oirish . . .

If I had a shamrock for every time I hit triple 5 or triple 1, I'd have a lot of shamrocks.

The Luck of the Oirish . . .

 Trigger Warning - old board (I've discovered via Dart Forums that some dart players don't like looking at moth-eaten boards. It offends them.)

Thought I'd rotate the board for St Patrick's Day, and I got a 180 in the green. Also, I don't want to write too soon - but I must - but I think my dartitis is gone . . . for now.

Woe is fucking me . . . (Part 2)

My dartitis in two pics. It took me about 70 seconds to throw my third dart (should be about 5-7 seconds between throws, if that)  . . .  and look where it ended up.

I guess I could just try to pass it off as a 160 outshot.

In case people are wondering what 'dartitis' is, this will give you a sense of it.

Woe is fucking me . . .

My first 180 with Designa Mustangs (23 grams).

Sadly, also my first 180 with what I think is a horrible case of Dartitis. It kicked in a couple of days ago. I hope it's just a temporary blip due to me flitting between different types - and weights -  of darts the last few weeks, but I don't know. I've never been so miserable in my darting life.


They came with different flights and stems as you can see below. I really like the Kyle Anderson flights. Very nice.

A Martine McCutcheon moment . . .

There's a 180 in there somewhere.

My photographic skills are almost as bad as my board . . . almost.

My Darting Life

 My first 180 with my newly acquired Designa V2 Dark Thunders . 

I really love the look and feel of the dart but sadly I'm not sure if it's the dart for me. It might just be the weight (24 grams) but despite the 180 my throwing has been really erratic. 

Maybe I'd feel more comfortable with a 20 gram version.


My Day, My Darts

 Just rewatched John Carpenter's 1976 classic action thriller, Assault on Precinct 13.

And, there's a dartboard spot in the film! Looks like whoever was throwing the darts has my sort of aim. Sadly, I have to report that the board did not survive the assault. I shed a tear.
