Darts- the sport of Kings

There are not many sports where the participants weigh double that of the average person. Where the warm up routinue is enough pints to fell a rhino. Where tattoos and gaudy gold are regulation uniforms. Where hot women parade around gargantuan men and love it. Where the crowd scream for you because you can throw a small metal spike.

Welcome to the world of darts.

If this is something you feel like you need to be a part of, here's what you'll need to do-

Phil 'The Power' Taylor
Simon 'The Wizard' Whitlock
Martin 'Wolfie' Adams
Adrian 'Jackpot' Lewis

What's in common? The nickname doesn't have to have anything to do with you as a person. My nickname? 'The Shotgun'.

Get good

Unfortunately there is only one way to make any money or fame from darts and that's to get good. It's surprisingly difficult to throw a small object in the same place over and over again.
