Just Darts Since 2009
Weeks 13 & 14 – The Cards & Brickhouse I
January 14, 2012Posted by on
Well, another dart season’s gone…
Remember on 12/26 when I said we had a match the next day? I don’t know how I could have misread the schedule–I probably didn’t even look at it–but of course, we had a bye the week between Christmas and New Year’s.
So, Red and I showed up for the match and played for a few hours since we were there anyway. If you check the stats above, you’ll notice that he played quite a bit better the last two weeks. Just sayin’.
Oh, and the league office wasn’t being lazy by not sending out the stats reports. I always forget that he doesn’t issue them the last couple of weeks of the season to prevent teams tanking to one another to manipulate the standings and get into the playoffs in a less than honest fashion. Kinda lousy to even imagine some people doing that, but they do. The stats have been updated now that the playoff teams are set.
So, not a bad couple of weeks. We lost to The Cards 7-6, but only after going down 5-0 to them to start the match. It came down to the final game in the end, and while it would have been sweet to walk away with the win, I couldn’t be too upset about how we finished the match.
Then it was Brickhouse I last Tuesday, and we played better than we have in a long, long time. What impressed me most was how well the other team handled what happened. They were pretty sure that we were knocking them out of the playoffs and they reacted with genuine good humor. As it turned out, of course, we only knocked them back from 3rd to 4th place, and so they’re still in.
We didn’t make the playoffs, but we didn’t miss by much. And we didn’t hit .500, but we missed that by only a hair. We could have all done better this season, but it’s a tough division and we didn’t embarrass ourselves.
All in all, a good time.
Final record: 90-92
I’ll let you know if anything interesting happens at the banquet. Otherwise, I’ll see you when the next season starts.
