Just read in another thread that Michael is going for a darts competition today... Good Luck, Michael, and have fun! ;)

Thank you. Was fun and we won. Two times 180 score even!

Only twice?

its abnormal if u throw two ONE-HUNDRED-AND-EIGHTY's in a match, believe me. when i play darts and i am winning i always start thinking and then the darts fly everywhere except in the board.

Usually the arm stops too... But, congratulations!!!!!! (Even better when there were only 3 of you on your team.) ;)

Does the "cat toss" qualify as a sport?? We get quite a bit of upper body exercise tossing them all off of the couch several times a night.

Wow! Congrats! It's not exactly a big sport in Sweden and thus I haven't played in years, but i used to play quite a bit in the UK. Any sport which it's more or less required to drink beer whilst doing it is fine with me - hence why i've also played a fair amount of pool and snooker over the years. I was never really any and never got a 180 (a few 160's) but it was good fun.

In the past i've played football, cricket, hockey (field), Rugby Union, handball, bobsleigh, table tennis and badminton at different levels, and was also a decent 100-400m runner. But my main thing was always cycling - I competed at a fairly serious level at road, track and cyclo-cross. Sadly, too many accidents, injuries and illnesses put paid to any chance i had to turn pro, and after that i stopped competing altogether as I found it a bit depressing, although I still ride quite allot, do some touring and still periodically go out training with some friends who are now pro's. Apart from that i compete in a number of "silly" sports, and also do a llot of walking, but have never been to a gym in my life and don't intend to ever start!
