"The atmosphere is so tense, if Elvis walked in with a portion of chips, you could hear the vinegar sizzle on them"

The Sky Sports coverage of the Ladbrokes World Darts is, once again, drawing me in with its mixture of high drama, wondrous personalities and top notch commentary. My hot tip is for ‘Hawaii 5-0-1’ Wayne Mardle to upset the top seed Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor in the quarter-finals and to win the whole darned thing. From a musical perspective, the media mover who compiled a montage of Raymond Van Barneveld clips with Brown Paper Bag by Roni Size playing in the background deserves some kind of gong; the hybrid of quality arrows and soaring Bristolian drum ‘n’ bass inspired awe galore.
