Just Darts Since 2009
Week #10 – Good Strokes
November 17, 2009Posted by on
After the disappointment of the last match, we needed to bounce back strongly against this team. We’d beaten them 7-6 at our place, and we had to do that again to have a chance at ending up in second place and getting a home game for the first week of the playoffs.
Didn’t happen. We were flat and listless. I don’t know if this had anything to do with it (I mean our performance, not the result) but Tracks, Good Strokes’ home bar, has become a terrible place to play darts. They used to have an area between the bar and the restaurant area with a couple of boards, but now it looks more like the darts equivalent of a bowling alley. Six machines lined up along a wall. Eight players per board plus assorted hangers-on, waitresses and other patrons makes for a very crowded, uncomfortable experience.
Anyway, what’s done is done. We went from second place (with a shot at first) to fourth place in two weeks. Not the best way to go into the playoffs.
Final score: an 8-5 loss.
