While all our thoughts are with Sid Waddell and his family as he battles illness and begins the difficult journey to full recovery, we thought we would help lighten the mood a little by launching the first of our glitzy & exclusive DartsMad.com Tungsten Barrel Awards. This may become a regular feature, or it may not; who knows.
The DartsMad.com Tungsten Barrel Awards
Category: Best Darting Moustache
Darts is a sport that is usually associated with girth and it is a shame this clichéd focus on heft has overshadowed some impressive muzzy action down the years.
Well, no longer. Today we celebrate the best ‘taches of the oche from the annals of professional darts.
We’re still waiting for a ‘Salvador Dali’ or a ‘Hans Moretti’ to grace a PDC Pro Tour event so while we have to make do with new fangled finely mowed designer stubble and juvenile bum fluff let’s take a stroll down memory lane to look back at some of the more memorable lip fur to have bristled 7’ 9 ¼” from the sisal.
Note: Only moustaches qualify; beards and goatees do not. Outstanding exhibits by the likes of Andy Fordham, Gary Mawson, Robert Thornton, Peter Manley, and, erm, Justin Lee Collins, are magnificent in their own right (not to mention the masterpieces fashioned by Simon Whitlock and Martin Adams) but are excluded from this award category.
