Yes, it was a regrettable comment... made even more silly when I believe he himself suffered from a mental disorder in his career, the darting equivalent of the yips, didnt he?

Yep. That would be it. Apparently some bizarre condition where the hands dont release the dart when the mind wants it to.....

Legendary writer of films and plays, Neil Simon, has died at 91.

Thematically, ahead of his time in the sixties, notably the comedy bromance, The Odd Couple.

A personal favourite is more of a rat-race drama, The Prisoner of Second Avenue.

Chas Hodges, from Chas and Dave.... 74

RIP

you were just the kind of girl to break my heart in two
I knew right off when I first clapped my eyes on you
but how was I to know you'd bend my earholes too
with your incessant talking
you're becoming a pest
