Welcome to The Best Lack All Conviction Blog
This blog is not about anything other than the things I want to write about.
For a long time this blog tried to be about darts and may yet again talk about darts
but for now it is about whatever suits my fancy.
If that entertains, engages or inspires you, then I guess we are in good company.
My sister also has a blog that is written by her pet border collie

Well, I think time to update on what happened with last nights darts match, the second last of the season, with a question mark as of yet to where the cut off line is for playoffs. On that I suppose it is just a wait and see issue.
As for last night, we were up against the current 2nd place overall team (we are 18th overall by comparison.) We, as you might have guessed lost, but while there was some disappointment there was no regrets, as we made it very close (7-5) against a superior team. The last time our team faced them (before I was a member) I am tolld that we lost 11-1!! Ouch!! Much better the second time around!! I'm really proud of the team!
So how did I do? Well I had a new partner for cricket this week, as Mr. Fred Winter did a lot of the heavy lifting, but not all of it as we put in a solid team effort against a pair of players who had a combined record of 20 and 3!! They were fantastic players and good sportsmen, and you know what? We found a way to beat them! Two nil! Considering this is only my 5th week playing in a darts league ever, I think I can check this off as being my biggest win yet! (With all due credit to Fred who did more than his part!)
I wasn't done yet though! I had one more game which in which I lost, OK, got thoroughly trounced by a man named Bill Neilson. Bill was an absolute gentleman, but also way out of my skill range. I was very happy to be allowed the challenge though. You see it turns out that I lost to the guy who lost to Colin Loyd!! To me that is just awesome!
i am determined to one day play Bill again and give him a challenge, possibly beat him. I have a very long way to go and no guarantees that I will get there. I was told that this was 'never going to happen' and that I was 'dreaming' by someone on the team, which hurt as I 'd rather not have my friends defeat me before I even start.
It's a long way to go though, I am very new and have a lot to learn. For now I am just going to have fun, practice, practice and practice and not look too far ahead. I'll get to where I am getting to when I have gone got there.
Just glad to have you all along for the journey! See you next time!!
