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.

Im not sure if i had mentioned any of this before but a while back I got my wife a used set of Black Widow darts and she loves them, except for the fact that they are the movable point variety and the person before had been using them with metal stems, which of course ruined the threads. Not to be undaunted I crazy glued a set of Cosmo Fit Flight stems in place on them, and so far they have held up. It just seems a shame for her to have a set of darts that are both very nice for her, but also a little sadly flawed. She already puts up with sadly flawed in a husband, but well a woman should expect more of her darts than of her husband!!
The long and short of it is that I have come up with a scheme to save up money to buy her a new set of darts (either new widows or a set of Jeff Pickup customs) by not drinking any more beer at league games.
How did that go?
Well on the cash side of things I am both proud and slightly ashamed to say we saved a goodly sum over what we would normally spend. it just also happened to be the stiffest, most stressful most wretched few games I have played in a long time. At home in practice (which i always do stone cold sober) i was shooting well, beautifully even. Once the game starts for real though...
I suspect as i grow and mature as a player I wont get so easily unnerved, but until then it's going to be a tough haul!
I am a good sport, but I hate losing. I really do, but I would also really like to get my wife a nice new set of darts. A plan B might be in the works where I'll have a tipple before a game but then stick to kinder and gentler libations once I'm there.
OK and I have maybe mentioned doing a new dart review for my new McCoy Copper Tungsten's that I got from pure darts? Well very sorry to disappoint but I still haven't fully formed an opinion of them.
In any event the picture with today's post is indeed them. I used the McCoy Stealth most of the night but pulled the Copper Tungsten's out for maybe my best game of the night. (which was sadly still a loss).
I'm still feeling the sting of a bad night, but there is some satisfaction is sharing my misery with all of you!
See you all next time! Shoot well!!

Oh and almost forgot, but speaking of grabbing a great set of new darts as you may already have heard the folks at SEWA darts has their own dart as designed by the legendary Erik McVay. Erik is currently running a contest to give away a set. They are a fine looking dart and the SEWA forums are a wealth of information on darts so go check it out here: Win a Set of SEWA Darts Contest!!
Good luck!! :-)
