I heard an interview with a high ranked darts player on the radio. I have to say the interviewer did a good job of finding questions to ask, but the replies were possibly the most boring I’ve heard this year – the player hardly able to expand any of his monosyllabic replies. The nearest he got to any kind of reasoning was to say that darts was a sport, and if anyone thought it wasn’t, they had to take into account “all that walking”.
From the oche to the board to collect the darts after each turn. Wow. That’s 7 feet 9¼ inches. AND BACK.
That must be what keeps darts players so lithe and fit, is it?
