I really enjoyed the darts in the last couple of weeks. The PDC, sponsored by Sky, has the best players. The BBC version, the BDO, was won last year by Ted 'The Count' Hankey, who is the reason that vampires are undergoing one of their periodic periods of being sexy.
One of the other treats is that all these big fat tattooed guys give each other a hug and a kiss of congratulation at the end. This guy, the PDC young player of the year, gives a proper kiss on the cheek. It' sweet.
His name is Adrian Lewis. His nickname is 'Jackpot' because at a Las Vegas tournament in 2005 he won a $75,000 jackpot he couldn't collect because he was too young for Nevada's gaming laws (he was 20, I think).
This is the player who, in the clips I saw, no one kissed:
She's called Anastasia Dobromyslova, and she's the women's world champion. There was some politics involved in whether she should have been given a wild card to the world championships, but that is not the reason for the clips. In the three videos I saw (not a statistically significant sample) the man involved naturally went towards her, and you saw the recalculations taking place in his head as he tried to work out what might be appropriate, and then he decided against it. Also, I think, sweet.
