Anger Management At The World Darts Championships

The darts starts again at Ally Pally today - the World Darts Championships always represents one of the most entertaining sporting weeks of the year.

Round 1 of the tournament, which took place before Christmas, produced its fair share of memorable moments. Dutch wunderkinds Van Gerwen and Klaasen were dumped out in the first round (how long until they live up to their massive potential in the PDC, a clearly flu ridden three times World Champion, John Part, was beaten in the first round, but most of the other big names battled through to the business end of the tournament.

One of the most memorable moments though was this one from Colin 'Jaws' Lloyd.  Lloyd has been struggling a bit in the televised tournaments of late and was clearly frustrated that he had allowed his opponent to launch a comeback.  And then this happened:

OUCH!  I bet he regretted doing that in the morning.  Lloyd somehow regained his cool and battled his way in to the second round.  I'm sure there will be many more memorable moments in the next week.
