Ladies and Gentlemen, let's play darts

Wow, wow, wow. The PDC World Championship has been excellent thus far. I have caught a few matches and was quite happy to see Messrs Painter, Mardle and Manley bounced out early doors. Chris Mason's match against John Part was very high quality but the two stand-out matches for me have been Raymond Barneveld storming back from 3-0 down to defeat 'Jaws' Colin Lloyd, the #1 seed, 4-3 and Denis 'the Menace' Priestley coming back from 3-1 down to defeat the Dane, Per Laursen 4-3 with Priestley becoming more and more manic as the match came down to the crunch. Priestley's joy and relief manifesting itself in some quite phenomenal dad dancing. On a sad note, ex-BDO world champion Richie Burnett was thrashed by loudmouth Alex Roy and another ex-BDO champ, Steve Beaton also bit the dust. Beaton is sadly no longer known as 'the Adonis' and the mullet is no more, but the tache remains and his new nickname of 'Magnum' combined with entrance music of the Bee Gees Staying Alive more than makes up for it. For your viewing pleasure I have embedded the following segment of the Adrian Lewis/Wayne Jones tussle with Lewis playing absolutely great darts.
