Is it true darts players and billiards players are bitterly opposed to each other?
I've never heard or read this before, but I guess it could be true. By billiards you probably mean snooker
Darts is really the only working class sport that still exists. Snooker used to be, when the players were allowed to drink booze
and smoke smokes
on TV, but I guess Aunie Beeb
thought that inappropriate.
Darts players can't smoke and drink on TV of course, and it seems that the game is becoming richer and more flamboyant
, but I think it'll always be thought of as a true working class sport.
The Hercules pub around the corner has a darts board, so I'm probably gonna head there for my first practice tomorrow. I haven't thrown a single dart for a few years, but it should be fun whatever happens.
