It's quite jolly.

The numbers and stuff mean absolutely nothing to me and I have no idea how to play or what makes up a game.

But it's quite fun to watch.

I love it and will defintely be watching the final tomorrow now theres a Scot in it

Showy Sat 03-Jan-15 21:16:32

I LOVE it.

I love darts. I only watch at this time of the year, but really get into it. It's great drama. Last night's match between Bunting & Barney was brilliant.

I love watching it!! My husband gets super excited and waves his arms around whilst singing a dart song and it makes me laugh grin

AuntieStella Sat 03-Jan-15 21:23:02

Do you mean this sort of Darts song?

Darts is awesome. So much fun and surprisingly skilful!!! Love the shirts, entrance theme tunes and nicknames!

So glad it's not just me.

I love that it moves so fast. No sitting around for ages waiting for someone to score a goal.

How they can hit those doubles is beyond me. Very skilful.

I love the atmosphere of The Lakeside. I'd love to go the the final and wave a 180 card in the air. I like a bit of snooker as well.

I love the darts. I've got the TV booked for the final tomorrow. It's not the same without the late, great Sid Waddell though sad

DramaAlpaca Sat 03-Jan-15 21:30:34

RIP Sid. His commentary was something else.

I love it and regularly used to go to the World Champs/Premier League (not since DS was born though). All my favourite players got knocked out of the World Championship early this year so I'm hoping that Barney will get through to the final now as I'm not a big fan of Taylor.

DramaAlpaca Sat 03-Jan-15 21:37:37

Same here. Barney to win this match, hopefully.

It's amazing how popular darts has become over the past few years. My dad has been watching it for as long as I can remember, both he and my mum used to play in teams before they got married. Long gone are the days of a fat bloke with a pint in one hand, dart in the other, fag hanging from gob in a smokey working men's club somewhere. Feels like it's proper sport now.

Only watch PDC ... BDO is for amateurs ��
I love it . I watch most tournaments every year but nothing beats the World championships

ladymariner Sat 03-Jan-15 21:46:28

Love the darts, have done for years, ever since I watched Deller beat Bristow when I was a kid.

simbacatlivesagain Sat 03-Jan-15 21:46:40

the new middle class craze apparently.

whentheshithitsthefan Sat 03-Jan-15 21:51:11

Whole family are darts crazy. I have a slight crush on Gary Anderson.

StillStayingClassySanDiego Sat 03-Jan-15 21:52:33

My dh and ds3 love it, Ds3 has been into darts since he was 7 or 8. It is brilliant for honing mental arithmetic, not meaning to sound all worthy or owt but ds is shit hot, I credit darts, honest!

WhereIsMySantaHat Sat 03-Jan-15 21:54:50

I also love the darts, only the sky1 jolly ones, not BBC2.

Go Barney. I always want him to beat Taylor.

TheWoollybacksWife Sat 03-Jan-15 21:55:59

Oh yes StillStaying my DDs roll their eyes when they see me watching darts. "Mum's watching maths with arrows again" grin

IrianofWay Sat 03-Jan-15 21:58:03

Bloody loved playing it! One year DH and I were in a team that won the local pub league. Babies put pay to that sadly. Never watched though.

Barney is fighting back!
