Week 8 Darts Update

We started the night in a tie for 4th place with 41pts, 10 points out of 1st and 5 behind the 2nd and 3rd place teams. Tonight we had a home match against the team out of the Pony Room who was in that 2nd place tie. This was the first match of the second half of the season and it is time to make a serious run at the playoffs. While the stats won't show it because we bounced around from match to match we sucked in the beginning found our grove in the middle and faded in the end.
601 Matches Split 1-1
Cricket Matches Won 2-1
301 Matches Split 3-3
Final Score = Won 6-5

This was a very big team win considering the team we beat will most likely be fighting for a playoff spot along with us and the first tie breaker is head to head matches. We beat them 6-5 in week 1 and 6-5 tonight so we have the edge on them should it come down to a tie breaker at the end of the season.

Now to the funny quotes!
As I am in the middle of crafting a best man speech for this Saturday, I was looking for some some inspiration. I asked the guys for their thoughts about some memorable speeches and luckily I learned a few things. For those that are honored enough to be asked to stand in for a good friend, here are a few things to avoid...
  1. Don't begin by introducing the groom and his bride and substituting her name with the name of his most recent ex-girlfriend.

  2. Don't add in the middle your speech, "Remember the night we went out to celebrate your negative aids test?"

  3. Another classic line to avoid, "Can you believe we are all here tonight? Did anyone here NOT think he was gay when he was growing up!"

  4. Avoid closing with, "Just think if he didn't knock her up, none of us would be here tonight."

Damn, now I got to re-write the whole F'n thing!

As well as the gems above we also we given these quotes...

Anyone up for Dot Day bowling this year?

The day I got my license I got arrested. It all happened because a dog puked on my girlfriend...

I am getting fixed (no more babies) and when I met the doctor his finger was all F'ed up, so I had to ask, "Are you going to get that finger fixed before you cut off my nuts?"

To close, it seems that David "DW" Puddy is trying to bring the high five back. If you see him raise your hand with pride and show him you read his blog and continue the movement. Also, the tunes were better than average but no one thought to ask the bartender to turn up the volume so it could have been Mozart and we would not have known it. (Full disclosure, I was threatened that if I reported differently..."It's on like donkey Kong!")

We are playing an away match next week at The Connection on Dot Ave.
