Sad. Too young to die but he was very overweight.

He was arrogant and obnoxious. And his opinions on sexually abuse victims should have been kept to himself.
Those who give up their freedoms for temporary security deserve neither and will lose both.

Bullseye.
Not an ambassador of darts or of men, but thoughts do go out to family, even I can vaguely remember him. Stuck his little pinkie out like a girl if I am correct.
I have met someone I cannot live without rather than someone that I can live with.

I went to the World Championships at Alexandra Palace a few years back. It was the most surreal sporting event I have ever been to.

It was at one time like a bloody religion around here. It used to drive me mad.

Coincidentally I was out for a meal last night with some friends and one of them had met Bristow in a pub many years ago. My drunken friend decided to challenge him to a darts match, the loser of which would have to buy all the evening's drinks for the winner. Needless to say Bristow slaughtered him so my friend duly bought all Eric's drinks. At the end off the night, Bristow shoved a £20 note in his hand, laughed and said "You didn't really think I was going to make you buy me all my drinks did you?!"
