NINE DARTER AT THE WORLDS FROM @garyanderson180!! Watch all 9 darts as the crowd go WILD! #WHDarts https://t.co/0Cf27BXtGK— PDC Darts (@OfficialPDC) January 2, 2016
I again rose before the rest of the household, looking to watch the two semi-finals of the PDC Darts World Championships. Helen and I watched as firstly Adrian Lewis took apart Raymond van Barneveld, leading 5-0 before eventually winning 6-3, and then reigning champ Gary Anderson proving too good for Jellie Klaasen 6-0, including a nine darter to take out the first set. Great stuff. I expect Anderson will get the job done tomorrow morning to win his second successive title, he looks way too good.
The 3rd Test started between Australia and West Indies at the S.C.G this morning. Rain took a couple of hours out of the day, with the Windies reaching 6/207 at stumps off 75 overs, thanks to Lyon and O'Keefe ripping through the over in quick time.
I moved around the Metal Cavern during the day, tidying and re-organising things, returning The Trooper to the southern wall, and finally putting my dart board up on the western wall to enable it to be used more often than was the case when it was in the garage.
We took the kids to Mum and Dad's this afternoon for their sleepover and had dinner there as well, before returning home to watch a few more episodes of Parks and Recreation Season 3 before heading to bed and getting prepared for the return to work tomorrow.
