- That we saw “Live Premier League…” in the Sky TV Guide, thought football (soccer) was on, selected the program, and learned that the program was, much to our horror, “Premier League Darts” (Burn!)
- That a repeat of Premier League Darts is shown in HD on Sky Sports while there’s plenty of Vancouver Olympics to be shown. Surely, somewhere in Vancouver, there’s Luge in progress?
- That Bank of England Governor Mervyn King shares his name with darts dynamo Mervyn King. The former has probably been guiding economic policy in silence, while the latter has Motörhead’s King of Kings as a walk on song. (Walk on song?)
FYI: Drinking during competition was banned by the British Darts Organization in the late 80s.
