But what I want to talk about today is the World Championship of Darts. They have been televising this all week long on BBC2. For hours at a time. And the thing is, it’s oddly compelling, with the announcers breathlessly calling “treble 20” and shouting “unLUCKY!” whenever somebody narrowly misses a shot. And the audience hangs out at long tables watching the match and drinking lots of beer. And at the end of the eleven-set final match, when the guy from the Netherlands beat the guy from the Wales, upsetting the #1 seed, the announcer shouted, without any irony whatsoever, “One of the greatest moments in the history of sports!”
