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.

Well I have gone with 'plan B' for my not buying beer on league nights, and so far so good! Not as much savings as no drink at all, but still better to get part of something than all of nothing right?
Last night was the dart league's annual singles tournament, and so I went out and decided to compete against the 'B' players a tier above me. The results were abysmal, with only one leg won, but not as embarrassing as one might think as with the exception of one leg I either could have (or possibly should have) won. I'm behind on experience, but I can throw at their level. Not too shabby for a guy with less than a year of darts under his belt!
I have also been feeling a swing back upwards in terms of confidence. I think that is something that will ebb and flow, but have been seeing some positive results to an adjustment I have made in my grip, not the least of which is the fourth 180 of my life you see pictured here. Sadly, no not done in a game, but still happy to throw one!!
I have a feeling there are more to come! If I have learned anything though is that I naturally play up or down to the level of competition and that playing against good and focused players does good things for me..
Also, last time around i mentioned a contest that was running on the SEWA forums, and well believe it or not it looks like I am actually in the running to win a set of Erik McVay darts. I'll post an update if i win!
OK, and now off to Valentine's day lunch with my amazing wife! See you all next time!
