The great JOCKY WILSON has passed away. Farewell one of the greats.

Two-time world darts champion Jocky Wilson died on Saturday night at the age of 62.
Wilson turned professional in 1979 and rose to fame after he claimed the 1982 and 1989 World Championships.
A Fife police spokeswoman told the BBC: "The death is non-suspicious and due to a medical matter."
Tommy Cox, who managed Wilson from 1988-1996, said: "In the 1980s there wasn't a person in the country who didn't know who Jocky Wilson was."

RIP Jocky.

A true story this, a guy I knew was fitting a gas fire to somebodies house and he noticed loads of trophies for darts so got chatting to the guy who's house it was. The guy was really friendly and explaining how he could have been a professional darts player but always remained amateur. The gas fire fitter bloke then pointed to a picture on top of the telly and asked "When did you get your picture taken with Jocky Wilson" to which the reply came "That's my wife, you cheeky c*nt", and it was his wife lol
