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

Darts: What's In a Name?
It has been a very long time since I have posted here and to tell the truth I am not sure how interested people would have been in the minutiae of my ups and downs as a very much fledgling dart player. (for the record it has been ups and downs with a mix of despair and blind faith).
All that aside, there is one issue, (that in my mind at least) has come to a head and needs to be tackled.
I recently got my wife her own dart shirt, complete with her own darting nickname. The shirt looks great and is good quality (I had it done by Projoy who do Canadian number one Jeff Smith's dart shirts).
Needless to say I am feeling a little dart shirt envy. I think I want one for myself. The only problem is what name and/or picture/graphic goes on the back?
I mean, I always sign off here as the 'Abominable Throw Man' but really isn't that just a bit too close to Mark Frost's 'Frosty the Throw Man' ?
Now I don't hate 'Abominable Throw Man' but wonder if there might be something a bit sharper.
The question is, then what??
Well I was born in Thunder Bay, so 'Lakeside Lobber' but I don't lob y darts, and well it is maybe more original, but even sillier than 'Abominable Throw Man'.
I live in Toronto so maybe 'The Big Smoke' but that is a nickname of many cities.
I know a bit of Taijiquan, but 'Golden Cock Stands On Left Leg' doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.
So help me out! Do I stand proud with 'Abominable Throw Man' or is there something else I can move forward with?
Please use the comment box below and give me your suggestions! I really want a dart shirt!
Thank you all for reading, even as off and on as I have been.
