Headed to rotterdam for the Premier League Darts with Vinny & Rijkels. Didn’t enjoy this as much as the World Championship, everyone wanted to stand of tables and chairs and you couldn’t see anything.
I also injured Rijkels quite badly… oops
James Wade 7-3 Jelle Klaasen

The ‘Santiago Sent Us’ Tour
This wasn’t the best conversion into a comedy show IMO, the TV show itself I think works far better than the live show, you do see some takes from the show which aren’t aired.
Still it was a good experience to go and see it.
The support dude (Owen Benjamin) was pretty good, well worth checking out if you get the chance.
MVG wins his second world title, against Gary Anderson. There was also some crazy loon who ran onstage and tried to present the trophy to MVG while he was throwing for the match.
Gary Anderson 7 – 5 Adrian Lewis
Anderson wins his second World Championship title, last years final had more drama.
Gary Anderson had a 9 dart finish to secure his place in the final for the second year running.
Raymond van Barneveld 3-6 Adrian Lewis
Gary Anderson 6-0 Jelle Klaasen
England 25-28 Wales
A tight game at Twickenham ended with a Welsh win.
I spent the whole game sat next to 4 Welsh girls dressed as daffodils, one of them had the most irritating whinging voice as she kept screaming “Wales, Wales” right next to my ear. It got so bad in the second half that I lost interest in the game totally. Having said that a rugby crowd is far better than a football one.
I don’t do the theatre often but Vinny suggested this and I’d heard great things about it from a few former work colleagues, it’s also written by the creators of South Park so it can’t be that bad.
I’ve seen many a tube poster for this or write ups in papers which read things like “Side splitting funny”, “the best musical you’ll ever see…” and so forth. I never believe these things at all.
By the end of the first act you know you made a wise choice in coming to see this. The whole place is laughing at what they are seeing in front of them.
A great evening, and wonderful entertainment throughout.
A freebie event which Vinny and I attended as we had the afternoon free before heading to see Book Of Mormon.
Austria 7-2 France
Came in half wat through this one.
Indonesia 5-7 Romania
One of the Indonesian players was highly entertaining in his pre-match interview, he was desperate to play England.
Poland 3-7 Chinese Taipei
Didn’t watch this one.
New Zealand 58-14 Namibia
This was always going to be a walk in the park and it was. Namibia did score a try however.
