Dart Player Throws 9 Perfect Darts In A Row And Earns $59,000 In One Absurd Game

by 2 years ago

Darts in America is treated very differently than darts across the pond. Stateside, darts is mostly a drinking game that you play at the bar to pass the time. You’ve probably got some friends who are in a competitive darts league but I’m willing to wager that more than 50% of those friends are bartenders. It’s *pretty damn rare* for someone to own their own set of darts unless they’ve got a man cave at home with a dartboard and if that’s the case then there’s a 99% chance they haven’t used the dartboard in over a year.

Pop over to foggy London town and you’ll see that Darts is a competitive sport broadcasted on TV and treated VERY differently. It’s not just a drinking game, it’s serious business. I’m not trying to hype up the game too much, I’m just trying to set the stage for why there’s a crowd at this darts match and why they’re going ABSOLUTELY INSANE as pro-darts player Gary Anderson throws a perfect 9-darter worth £45,000 (£5,000/dart thrown) which is equal to around $59,000. In this one game of darts (DARTS!?!?!) he earned enough money to buy a BMW X5 SUV, Nissan 370Z Nismo Tech, Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, or the Dodge Challenger Scat Pack (all cars/trucks under $60K):

I don’t have the words to express how much I love that this dart player’s nickname is The Flying Scotsman but I want you to know that I’m really, really pleased to learn this. Giving d-list sports stars nicknames is exactly what I need in order to get into the game of darts:
