Phil Taylor: “YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!”
Tonight is THE night. No, seriously it is.
(FYI: if you dont know who Phil Taylor is, check here)
After winning 5-6 games last Sunday in OCDA, I got a nice “Your darts fucking suck” from *THE SENPAI* as some nice parting words. Trust me, they don’t feel good even though I perfectly know what he is trying to do. I am getting better, but still not good enough even in my own standards, so why would he be satisfy right? He wants me to alter my form so I can improve more. But still, they don’t feel good. It stings so bad that I practiced with my friend until 3 am Monday morning. I have to really thank my friend in willing to provide the time to change my form, instead of like ppl who can only say but can’t do anything to help. I got some nice results (almost got my first ever 180 if one of the darts didn’t frikkin drop after it hit 60), but it’s still raw and I won’t even consider aiming doubles with that. So yes, I have a new form again, minor changes only, but still a new form.
Anyway, back to the darts league game. I was using my new form and as expected, I basically can’t hit most of my spots even though I have a VERY easy time grouping them together which is more important than hitting the spots I want to. Fine. I will take it for now. So in the doubles 501, I got teamed up with my dear “0-13″ (his league record so far) friend RD again, who this DL guy still think is better than me. Fine. When the game starts, I warned RD if there is any sign that he is giving up on the match, I will get into his fucking face right away. And yes, I mean it. Then he told me 「隨便喇」(or whatever it means in English). I told him, 「唔好隨便呀，我要預贏架我」 If Mr. “0-13″ and I can bring the #1 team in the league to the brink in our match last week, I REALY REALLY believe I can beat anyone. First game, when the opposing team finished their turn, I say to myself “THEY FUCKIN SUCK”. Other than a couple of fluke triples, they are nothing. I mean damn it, I got a triple 19, triple 17 and triple 3 on my first set. I know I can do this. However, they manage to win the first game. Not a big deal really, I know I can beat these guys. Second game, I made a critical calculation error (what a fucking shame *facepalm*) and left the score at 33. Next turn, RD asks me where he should go and I said 15. Teammates told him to go for 17. I don’t know where he really aimed for, but it did end up on 15. Guess what? Oh yeah, double 9 time. First dart, got double 14. Busted. RD and the other team went, nothing. So it’s back to me (2nd set). For some reason that I can’t even know myself, I decided to switch the music on my headphones to the Bakuman ED- BAKUROCK~ Mirai no Rinkakusen~. It’s the ending from episode one where Moritaka told himself that he will become a mangaka and marry Azuki no matter what. Love love love love love love that song, especially consider what the lyrics have in there. I don’t even recall which dart it is in that set, but yes I checked it and won the match. I know I can do this, I always know I can. Even when no one believes in me. But this time, I am not as excited as last week (where I checked double 9 as well) since the series is only 1-1 (and I guess I am over the hype since I already proved to myself that I can do this), and I have to win one more game before I can really celebrate. However, I made sure that DL knows that I won this game. So last and deciding game. I played okay, although I remember that I shot for a 11 score on one set orz. Anyway, down to the wire. My turn with a 16 score left. Terrible for me since double 9 chance is gone, and seriously double 8 is really not one of my strengths. If it’s just a normal match in ocda, i would have shot 14 and go for double 1 right away. But since I am in a real league match, I decided to give double 8 a try since I did check double 9 last game anyway. Not a good result on the first dart though, as it ended up on 11 which leaves me with a 5 score left. Usually people will need to think if they should go 1 and shoot for double 2 or 3 and go double 1, but I didn’t even think for ONE mini-second and go for 3 right away. HIT, double 1 next, outboard. Fine. RD and other team went, nothing. So back to me. Before I throw, I turned on to BAKUROCK again and relax myself. Then I start throwing once Moritaka finishes his sentence. First dart, close, outboard. Second dart, a little further away than the first one, but still outboard. Third dart…………………………………………………………..
That’s what came out of my mouth the moment I saw it land on double 1. Trust me, it was loud, VERY loud. I am sure the whole restaurant can hear me. And God it feels good. VERY FUCKIN GOOD.
It might not be more than just a W added to my name, and I know that. But, this is my first time showing to DL and everyone that I AM WAYYYYYYYYYYYY BETTER THAN THIS RD GUY, and that I CAN really do this. Even with a “0-13″ partner. However, I already spent like 85% of my energy on those 3 matches because I have to make sure the frikking chalker (who can’t fucking add and subtract to keep himself alive) is keeping the scores correct, and I have to keep getting into RD’s face everytime he shoots a low score and gets down on himself. Seriously, it’s really tiring. But is it worth it? I guess the answer is obvious. Nothing tastes better than 「勝利的美酒」, especially when everyone in the club and probably even my teammate thinks I will lose.
