Darts Buddy

Did you meet some great darts players?
Hi everybody, any stories about a meeting with darts legends? 

My best experience was an interview with Eric Bristow during his visit in Prague last April (I wrote a article about darts for the newspaper). I was surprised, how friendly and open he was. I had also the honour to throw some darts against him, so I'm little bit afraid, that I didn't show a professional journalistic distance  Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Sorry, I have only czech version of the interview  Guests cannot see images in the messages.

Met/played Adrian Lewis at the Las Vegas Dessert Classic when he earned his nickname.  It was four separate tournaments and I drew him in the first match twice, ughh.

Bing Translate can cope with Czech.

I met Whitlock a while back. He was very friendly and down to earth.

Way back when I played Rod Harrington in a tournament in the City who was very friendly. There is a photo somewhere, him in a shirt and tie and me in a Ramones tee shirt.
Not a player but I met Tony Green at C4 briefly.

I was there also. I was playing 2 boards down when his cronies came up with the nickname the next morning. Was hilarious. Never thought the name would stick to be honest. As at the time it was more of a friendly insult. 

I drew Kevin Painter back to back years there in the 1st round. Had him 2 sets to nil down and choked it away 2-3. It's cool. The following year I made the stage and promptly got my behind handed to me by John Part I think 7-2. I have watched it a few times since. It really could have been like 3-1 me at the break. Choked again. I did that a lot. Man now i'm depressed  Guests cannot see images in the messages.

I have met most the players. Part my fav, I could be a little biased there now as he is a friend Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

But Peter Wright is nice, Paul Nicholson super nice off stage. It's all an act. Wayne Mardle is a riot. The year I made the stage, my girlfriend and I saw him a few nights before and had a chat. I was a little hammered and asked what advice he could give me when I played Part in a couple days. He jokingly said "Drink less!" hahaha

Richie Burnett was super nice. As is Whitlock.

Paul Lim one of the nicest guys you will meet. Along with Terry Jenkins.

I did some security work at Lakeside in the 90s (think it was 96) wasn't really following darts much back then, but I do remember having a good chat with Andy Fordham and remembering what a good bloke he was.


Cheers

Met quite a few in my time, but agree with the above - unfortunately I never had the privilege of playing the great man, but Leighton Rees was one of the nicest blokes I've ever met - easily my favourite player of all time
