60 Minutes Sports had a very cool story on Professional Darts in England. According to the story, Phil “The Power” Taylor is the Michael Jordan of darts. All of his titles are too long to list, so go here if you have a lot of time on your hands (you do because you’re reading this already).
The above picture is a much younger Phil than he appears today, but you gotta love that quaffed hair/steesh/chest hair combo he was rocking back in the 80’s! Phil said he’s made millions of dollars over the years and his arm is insured for $15 million.
I’ve caught darts on tv a few times and it’s always exciting to hear the announcers and crowd going bananas, but the 60 Minutes piece made going to a darts match look more fun than any other sporting event I’ve ever attended.
