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.
