We have to start with a very sad bit of news though. Martin Fitzmaurice has passed away at age 75 :cry:

 

For many years, when I wasn't watching PDC yet (mostly because tv didn't show it here and because I hated the "money federation" back then) the darts at The Embassy - The Lakeside - started with Fitzmaurice's legendary "Are you ready?!! Ladies and gentlemen....Let's! Play! Darts!".

Woah! A darts thread! I started watching darts around 10 years back when the rivalry between Phil 'The Power' Taylor :p and Barney was at its peak! Taylor's my favourite. Like Barney, Anderson and Van Gerwen too. Van Gerwen's a genius!

 

I took up to playing darts when I started watching it. Just got a new dartboard after a hiatus of a few years when I went to college :d. My dream is to score a 9-darter :bowdown:. Need to start by getting my first 180 :lol:

Epic match between the Netherlands and Russia at the World Cup of Darts, where Aleksandr Oreshkin is sooooo slow and "weird" and fun and awesome :d 

 

Sad to see the Russians lost, it would have been awesome :( 

Can you share live streaming links whenever there is play? :)

I haven't played in ages, I think it's 10-12 years ago since we had a dartboard in the room which later became my bedroom meaning there was no space for the board anymore :p 

 

I think my best throw was having 2 treble 20's in one throw, but never 180 :d

I'll do my best :cheer:

 

Today is an interesting day, with a whole lot of "exotic" nations playing in the World Cup. Reyes and Alcinas are taking on the English team and they might have a chance :)

 

About my favorites: Peter Wright, Michael van Gerwen, Simon Whitlock, Vincent van der Voort, Justin Pipe are some of the names I like. On the other hand, I don't like Taylor a whole lot and I'm definitely not a fan of Van Barneveld anymore. I was when I was little and he won The Embassy/Lakeside 1998 (my dad recorded the final and I think I asked a million times during the months after to see the last few darts, D16 and then Barney threw away his last dart :d ), but nowadays he is always so negative and that's so freaking annoying :p

Aah, yup. I saw a few of Barney's matches last year and he just wasn't mentally up to winning. How I wish for the Barney of the old to show up again.

 

Spain beating England has no chance :p. We can have a bet on that :p

I also need to see this 1998 match you're talking about. Is it on the net?

 

After 1:50 hours the tiebreak starts, 2-2 in the final set :p

 

Ah those good old times, with Martin Fitzmaurice and his "Aaaaare youuu ready?!! Ladies and gentlemen...LET'S! PLAY! DARTS!" :d
