We won! Solid.

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

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

Bullseye

Bullseye

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!

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

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.

Practice sometimes doesn’t make perfect

Monday, March 9th, 2009

I got a stupid little cut on my “throwing thumb”  from opening up a box with a scissor.  Well it made me have to change my grip, SO SLIGHTLY.

Well it was enough to make my practice totally pathetic.  Couldn’t focus.  I hope it heals enough to throw tonight.  Because I am itching to get my doubles practice in before the season starts.  Thursday is package pickup and I might head to biddy’s to see what is up!

Kids are feeling a bit better, but oma isn’t coming over today because SHE is sick.

Sucks.

Happy Monday

Also Got a great phone call about next season.  Seems there is a team out there who wants my ugly ass on it!  Very excited.  Immediately after the call I went downstairs and did some practicing.  We are shooting out of Biddy’s.  Team name and stuff will be decided later.
