"Joe Blow, You Require 156!"

Evidently not. I found myself watching "darts" from Great Britain On Canada's so-called "sports" channel today. It makes us look like an even dumber species than we are.

I used to play darts -- when I was drunk or drinking. I was pretty good at it, because I would get drunk AFTER everyone else. It is purely a drinking game, and all societies invent games we can drink by.

So we can pass our time drinking while we play a really stupid so-called "sport" as an excuse for our drinking.

It is totally stupid. And it hides the fact that we could not succeed intellectually otherwise. It is the farthest thing from physical exercise except for card-playing or playing bingo, which are legalized forms of gambling.

  1. I love watching darts, it explains why the British Empire no longer exists.
    Why isn't this an Olympic Sport? Seriously?

    Okay it isn't really a freakin S P O R T per se it's a game...
    but still, it should be in the Olympics and the "combatants" should be allowed to chug dozens of brewskis while they "compete"...
    atleast until they have seriously punctured a judge or spectator :)

  6. I used to know a guy who played darts religiously. I went along to some of the dart nights. He, and all his dart-playing mates, were overweight heavy drinkers without the brain of an ox between them!

  7. Stace: Wasn't that Aidan and his buddies? Uh no. Aidan played that hilarious Down Unda sport where the criminal guy in a white lab coat and hat cmes out of nowhere behind the goal posts and signals a "try" or goal. Ha ha Ha Ha!!!

  8. Yeah, I can't believe there's a channel that focused on darts. Then again, there's a whole segment of the population who are enthralled by the sight of cars driving in circles on a track for hours and hours on end.

  9. ErosWings: Exactly: what is it about those racing fans? I'll never get it. But it sells newspapers. Of, but newspapers are about to go extinct as an entity!

    Chris: I like watching darts! Drinking, drunk, or otherwise, dart "athletes" throw those things exactly where they want them to go. Kind of like curling (which is also a game, along with golf-- not a sport). Takes some skill, no question.
