Week #7 – Brennan’s II

Brennan’s II kicked our butts the first time we met up this year–a 10-3 loss in which we were down 9-0 at one point.  Before the match, Meister, Vulture and I made a pact to do whatever it took to win this one 10-3 in return.  (Red was feeding the jukebox at the time.)

Boy, did we ever have the chance to do just that.  We had great opportunities to win each of the last two games, but the team just couldn’t get over the hump.  Still, it was a solid match.  With us losing ground last week after an 11-2 win, I was pleasantly surprised to see that we managed to take over first place this time.

Final score: a 9-4 win.

This week, we’re at Casey’s.  I’m interested to see what’s been going on with their team, because it looks like they haven’t been able to play in a while, and I suspect that their 13-0 loss to the Office Cafe was a forfeit after all.

I hope we’ll be able to play.



Almost halfway through the season, so it’s time to recap.

Week 1 – Bradford’s I

We got away with one here.  You could tell that these guys were good dart players, but they hadn’t gotten their rhythm yet.  You can see from the standings that they bounced back nicely.  Glad we caught them the first week.

Final score: a 9-4 win.

Week 2 – Brennan’s II

We couldn’t do anything against them.  Judging from their reactions (and the conversation I couldn’t help hearing on account of I was listening to every word) this was the best they’d played in a while.  It was unbelievable.  We were down 9-0 at one point, until Rook broke through with a win and it was time to celebrate.

Final score: a 10-3 loss.

Week 3 – Casey’s I

People who’ve read this blog for a while probably remember Moose from when he was on our side.  (We like Moose.)  He plays for Casey’s I now, and it looks like he’s a good fit there.  Nice bunch of guys, and a lot of fun to play against.  We went up 6-2 against them, and took the foot off the gas a little.  But it was a good time.

Final score: a 7-6 win.

Week 4 – The Office Cafe I

Roller coaster.  Down 3-0, then 5-2 before we started to click.  But when we did, we really caught fire.  For a few games, we played as well as we ever have as a team.  Down 6-5 in the last game of cricket, Red hit a double bull with his final dart for the win–a game the other team would have surely won the next round.  In 701, I shot over 40 ppd for the game–far and away the best I’ve ever done.  It didn’t change the standings much, but it was a confidence booster.

Final score: a 7-6 win.

So there it is.  A lot of darts, a lot of fun, and we’re at .500 so far.  Nothing wrong with that.

(I don’t know why the left axis on the cricket graph above is not displaying the scores correctly.  I’ll try to fix it.)
