I love sport, all sport, so long as it doesn't contain horses. I used to be a huge fan of darts when I was a teenager, I played the game (poorly) and back in the days when 8m people watch the World Championships on the BBC I really enjoyed the game. These days there are way to many other distractions in my life and darts now seems so '90s! so I don't watch it that often, however this year there have been two epic tournaments, the PDC World Championships and the BDO World Championships (don't ask). In the first Raymond Van Barneveld came from three sets down to beat Phil Taylor (probably the greatest darts player to ever live) by 7 sets to 6 with a tie-break dart in the final leg! And now, tonight, Martin Adams has just beaten Phil Nixon 7 sets to 6. In this case Adam's, (who believed he was destined never to win the title) was six sets to nothing ahead against the qualifer Nixon. Nixon won the next six and Adams finally clinched the trophy by winning the final set.
Even if you hate darts, if you like sport you'd love this. Utterly gripping and compelling stuff!
