Darts is such an interesting game, especially in the United Kingdom and parts of Europe.  For some time I’ve wondered about the source of said popularity and why it would be allowed in a public bar.  I mean, allowing inebriated people to throw very pointy and sharp sticks at a wall creates all kinds of opportunities for public injury.  The public liability insurance must be a nightmare.

As it turns out, Darts is not popular for the same reasons other sports are popular.  You really aren’t required to be “fit” in the traditional sense of a “sport” to play the game – you need to have another kind of “fitness”.

This clip from “Smith and Jones” on “Not the Nine O’Clock News” captures the “fitness” capabilities to be successful at Darts.
