Quoting Sam I Am

Quoting Utrecht

Raymond van Barneveld, Roland Scholten, Niels de Ruiter (also a friend), Remco van Eijden, Co Stompé and a few others from Holland. Mostly lost of course....
Various players from Finland (Komula, Kantele) in a couple game...we won!
Stephen Bunting and Mervin King from England and a few others from Germany,.

Ok, I haven't played against lots of others;)

That's pretty cool; watched many a game of many a player listed here. Sadly darts is not on tv a lot in Norway (unlike the Netherlands these days!).

Do you know already that the Norwegian (Austrian) Robert Wagner became second in the official World Championships? Lost of Mark Webster, number 1 of the world (well at least, at the BDO);)

I didn't. It didn't even make the sports section (which I of course follow religiously :) )...

Got a hand shake from Queen Beatrix from the Netherlands at her visit last year.
She was visiting the Netherland Antilles Islands.
She is a friendly monarch,also her son Prince William and his argentinian wife Princess Maxima.When the where swimming we waved at them from the pier and they waved friendly back to us.

When I worked at a hotel here, I got to deliver fresh-pressed clothes to Hulk Hogan and Richard Marx. (Neither gave me a tip. Cheapskates.) I also got to deliver a closet full of stuff to Nicholas Cage, but he was never in his suite when I went up. I did get to take a peek at his passport, though! Silly him, leaving that lying around... ;)
