Topic: My sporting television debut.

Well it's not on tv, but streamed on the internet, and i'm one of hundreds of games so probably won't be shown. That apart I'm making my sporting television debut this weekend.

I'm in a darts competition which the cream of the BDO all play in. Work have chipped in to get all of the lads branded Darts shirts - bit embarrassing really, all topped off by the obligatory nickname on the back. So if I ever make it in the darting world I will be known as The Knocker.

It's a play on childhood nicknames, but more so a connection to my brother, the one who had the motorbike accident, got ripped off/free double glazing and who a few years ago now died following an epileptic fit/fall. When I was a tot and he was about 14 he used to tell me the Knocker was coming to get me, at some point i'd hear a slow rhythmic knock on wood and he'd tell me to hide and not come out, presumably to keep me quiet. At least once he told me to hide in a drawer which he then shut me in.

Darts wise I hope I get a name, it's best of seven and my main hope would be to show them I can play.

Space, Pokerstars will have prices on Friday afternoon.

The stream starts at 12:00, not sure when my first match will be on. In a lesser contest Thursday night, if I win my first game which isn't impossible I will be up against a dutch bloke who got to the worlds quarter finals at the BDO.  In Friday's contest I have a tough first game which in all probability I'll get stuffed.  if somehow I win I play the third seed.

Re: My sporting television debut.

Hoping it's pronounced The Kin-ocker like Knockaert.

He spent all night staring down at the lights of LS. Wondering if he could ever go home.

Re: My sporting television debut.

Saturday's draw has been made, i'm in the second round (the last 256) where I play a scottish bloke who is clearly better than me but for this standard probably isn't a bad draw. We will be playing after 12, but I would expect the big guns to be streamed, I cannot imagine they will do all or many of the boards.

I've had a day off work today so I can spreadsheet and practice and not have to rush about tonight.

Shouts of 'stand' as the Scottish wanker and his mob turn up to find us sitting at their allocated tables

Bookies betting on themselves is that allowed? What odds are you giving youself?

Re: My sporting television debut.

To win tonight's game, 10/1. To win tonight's event 1,000,000/1. Though note my max payout is whatever I can find down the back of the sofa.
