Our Dart Match was postpones because the other team didn’t have enough players…. It sucked.  But at least I got to have a few of these.

Week 6 Results are in

Friday, April 24th, 2009


Week 6 Results are in.  We won, but I don’t think it was our Best performance.  Killian had an amazing 91 out in singles.  He hit the triple 17 and once he did that i “knew” he would hit it.  And boom he got it.

Another noteworthy performance was Killian and I in Cricket.  We won game 1, then in game 2 we were really far behind.  But came back by smacking the bullseyes.  The win was the best come from behind “steal” I ever had in league.

Other than that it was a lackluster night.  We were missing Jack who was in Vegas, so JJ stepped up.  Always fun to shoot at Biddy’s but I think our home matches are done for awhile.  Monday coming up we are on 86th street.

Game on

Quickie Practice Routine

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

Last night the boy went to bed and the girl wanted to play downstairs in the basement, so I grabbed my darts and altered my practice.  Because I knew it had to be a quick practice.  Alayna can only take so much of me practicing my darts 🙂  Luckily she was into playing with her princess castle and eating puffs. I ended up getting a good practice.

Started with 60 practice.  See how many times in a row you can hit 60 (or more) with 3 darts.  I did ok.  Nothing special, but it warms you up.

Then I did masters cricket.  3 darts at every number, if you miss you need to make it up on the bull.  I actualy won the 2nd game.  lost game 1 and 3.  My bulls were my weak point.

Then I did my OUT”S practice.  You start with 60 points, and need to get out in 3 darts.  If you miss or bust, you try and get 59 out with 3 darts.  And so on and so on. If you HIT the out.  You add 10 points to your score and keep going.  This game can get frustrating, but it’s good out practice.

I missed 60, so I went to 59, 58 , 57, then i hit it on 56.  16 miss double 20.  So my next turn was 66.  Actually hit that too single 16, single 18, double 16.  I was feeling good.

If you get frustrated you can always move on, but I enjoy 60 out practice.

Then Alayna was ready to go to sleep, so darts practice was over 🙂  But It was fun.  Looking forward to Monday, since we had a bye I am itching for some competition.

Week 3 Standings!

We beat the 2nd place team last night.  11-7.  Was a great game , and everyone had a lot of fun.  Ben was bartending instead of corey.  The drinks were flowing, and the darts were great!

I will give a more detailed breakdown tomorrow.  But thanks to JJ for being there too. Killian was too jet-lagged 🙂

And the Gaf East were great opponents, see you guys later on in the season.

Darts, what kind do I use?

Eric's Darts

Believe it or not other people read this blog!  I recently got asked what kind of darts I use.  Well there they are!  They are the Phil Taylor Unicorn 24g Purist Gold darts.  And medium Nylon shafts.

Top top them off I use Andy Capp dimplex flights.  Why Andy Capp?  Because I like em damn it!

I was recently thinking of switching to a shorter dart, but for now I am staying with the unicorns.

Tonight we shoot at Biddy’s, game starts at 730pm.  Come ON DOWN

week 2 -another win, another fun night

Thursday, March 26th, 2009


We shot against a very solid team over on 70th street between 1st ave and York.  Killian was sick and was almost a no-show, but he pulled on through just before we started.

Christian was up first in singles 501 and won both games, but in a very lackluster way.  Winning on double 1 in the first game and double 12 in the second.  But 2 wins are 2 wins.  Good job Christian.

Sickly killian came out firing during his first game taking the win on double 1, but lost the second game.  Both good games, and thanks to killian for coming out!

I shot third and my first game guess what I got out on?  Yes DOUBLE 1.  This team loves that out.  my 2nd game I got out with 50 left and it was a 24 darter (not bad).

Jack looked strong but was outmatched by their best player and lost both games 21 darter and 24 darter.  Keep your head up!

We went into cricket up 5-3.

UNFORTUNATELY I don’t have the stats for the rest of the games as I chose to drink my face off instead of take stats.  But the night ended up at 11-7 so we are very happy to pull another victory out of our hats.

Next Week we are home against Gaf East, should be a good game against a tough team.  For the REAL stats, wait until tomorrow so I can check the website!

Practice you fools!

Week 2 game ON!

Monday, March 23rd, 2009

This week we are shooting at For Pete’s Sake, A bar on 70th between 1st and York, come cheer us on!

The question is do I head to biddy’s first and have a few?  then head to the bar?

I am thinking yes.

I did some good practicing and I feel good!

Monday night darts was fun!

It took some time to get this post up.  My family and I are sick.  And writing the blog isn’t #1 priority.

Anyway, Week 1 QUICK recap.

B division is great.  Round 5’s count, you play less games, and go home earlier.

This week we played “the dirty blondes” who shoot out of Bar East.  Great bunch of shooter, and believe it or not WE STARTED EARLY.

501 singles was very good for us.  Each one of us shot “solid” with the exception of me, I was weak on my consistancy, and couldn’t finish.

We ended up way ahead after 501 dispite my poor performance.

Cricket was also very solid, jack and christian cleaned up

Killian and I were slow but steady, and it was fun shooting with killian again (we used to be on the tuesday A team together)

Double Double was a bit of a blur since the drink started getting to me, but we made it out of biddy’s with a 14-4 win.  Not too bad of a start!

Our team was in great spirits, we got home at a decent hour (except me taking the wrong train), and our opponents were a lot of fun to shoot against.

Let’s keep the fun and winning going next Monday when we visit The Point WHores at “FOr Petes Sake” on 70th street.

Shoot well

Week 1 begins TONIGHT!

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Yes it’s the day before St. Patricks day, but tonight we start the season.  Come to Biddy’s Pub (91st and 2nd ave) if you want to cheer us on!

Kids are still sick at home, but getting better.  I am excited to start this season, and YES I brought my darts unlike Friday night.
