Let's give Brits some credit. Proffesional Darts is torture.
When I was TDY to RAFs in my youth, I was subjected to the only entertainment on the Tele, Professional Darts. There had never been a more boring 'sport' on the air. I would rather watch insurance seminars and read Actuary Tables than to watch fat, grown men glare at each other like Siamese-fighting fish. That's when I learned to drink.
