Brought back by popular demand…the Dart Night recaps!
2012 is a new year and sweeping changes were made to the old Layden’s crew. We have a new Captain – Sean “Super P.” Meehan, a new team name (I guess we are no longer DTF??), a return addition to the team in Jared Roland who left years ago to “find himself” or as Randy Moss says, “I left the game because of family issues” and a new home field - The South Side Tavern in the finest city in the world - Quincy. I hope you all can find some time this season to stop by for a beer and a few laughs and catch the action live. When I get a chance, I will post a readable version of the schedule.
So now to the action: The team is still shaking off the rust but we have managed to win our first match of the season and scrape out a tie in the second match. Not bad considering no one has picked up a dart in 8 months. I won’t bore you with details of each match (mostly because I can’t remember any details) so I’ll just cover the Wins and Losses, and what I think are the areas in which we need to improve.
501: Week 1 we went 0-3 and in week 2 we went 1-2. In other words, We suck! After losing the first 5 matches in this event Jeb and Mr. Booze finally pulled out a win in the last game of week 2. It’s going to take a lot of work for Capt P. to figure out what chemistry works and he better do it fast. If we want to be successful, we can’t keep spotting the other team points early in the night.
Cricket: Week 1 we went 2-1 and in week 2 we went 2-1 and to put it bluntly, I SUCK! Overall the team has managed to win 4 of the 6 matches and I have managed to lose 2 matches with different partners in each game, and they both won games that they played with someone else. All I can say is, “Where is Crazy Bob V when I need him???” Once is a mistake, twice is bad luck and any more than that is just unacceptable. Let me go on record and say, this is a trend that will not continue!
301: Week 1 we went 4-2 and week 2 we went 4-2 and just as in years past, we continue to dominate in 301. Not sure how we can suck in 501 and win in 301 but whatever. There is only 1 man on this squad that has not brought home a victory in the singles yet. Due to the fact that he has faced 2 good opponents and neither of them were females, I won’t call him out this week, but if the situation does not change soon…
Next week we have a home match against a team from S-6. See you there at 7:30 Tuesday night.
'Til next time bitches,
