All the best with the move, perhaps best to leave behind your habit of passing out and falling over in Itaewon!!

My thoughts are with you from China, i wont try to add anything to what Kevin has already said.
I will be sure to get in touch when i am next in Seoul so we can meet up and throw some darts.

I think that a group of people walking side by side at the slowest possible speed is an Asian thing, same thing happens in China. It’s like they are trying to recreate the Reservoir Dogs poster!

I for one would be delighted to see the return of the Yoja of the week series.
In the years since you have stopped there must be a whole new batch that we need to be introduced to!!

Time to put a bylaw in that states the dart league will not get involved in disputes between league members and bar owners, regardless of whether any incident occurs on a league night or not. I think the IPL and SIDL have something along this line. I recall there was a player in the pool league who was barred from a certain esablishment and after tempers had died down a little the owner agreed when his team were due to play at the bar in question (as visitors) he was allowed in the bar but would not be served alcohol. But again this was something discussed between the individuals and did not involve the league.
My trip to Seoul has moved forward to the 16th – 18th September, unfortunatly not soon enough to catch up with you. Have safe trip home and see you next year.

In my list of “How the hell does that place stay open?” Friends bar was right at the top, and that was before the surge in the number of bars in Itaewon.

I can confirm i am officially offended!!
I should be back in Seoul between 6th – 10th October, i will forgive you if you buy me a beer!!

Wow, in my 4 years in Korea and 4 or 5 season in the darts league i dont think i ever heard a fight associated with the dart league never mind witnessing one.
In fact one of the main reasons that i stopped playing in the pool league and switched to darts was due to the increasing number of heated arguements that occured during pool matches but simply didnt happen with the darts league.

Great to meet up with you John, and finally i can say i have my internet fame!!
I will be sure to keep you in the loop for future trips!

I hope to visit Seoul a couple of times this year so hope to be able to catch up with u (and the goat) when I do, I will have to dust off the darts, and u will need to give me a substantial start though!

If this isnt the best reason for you to get down to a tailors in Itaewon and get your very own custom made 3 piece white suite and black shirt with collars larger than the wings on an A380 i don’t know what is!!
Don’t forget the medallion either!!
If nothing else it would surely put off your opponents!!

I check in on a weekly basis. Looking forward to the posts, i hope we will get weekly darts league updates, roadtrip stories and pics, and night out with friends posts culminating in the obligatary “Walrus does karaoke picture!!!!”

Hi John, have a safe journey and a great time in Korea. Looking forward to some Korean posts whilst you are there!!
» Posted By Thirsty On 06/March/2014 @ 10:15 am
That should say outside the 12 not the 2, although explains a lot about my darting skills!:lol:

My once in a blue moon check in!!
Keep up the good work with the healthy eating, we may need to think up a new nickname for you when you reach your target.
Is the darts picture an amazing action shot or did you nail the wire outside the 2?? 😉

Great reading all about your return trip to Korea, keep it up.
Reminds me in a way of the Bill Bryson book, which i think was called I’m a Stranger Here Myself, about returning to the States after many years away.
Hopefully you will also be able to provide a few posts on the dart league? (Hint hint!)
All the best

Glad to see you are still keeping up the good work with the blog. A few ideas for shows (none of them will tax the brain too much)
Spartacus: Blood & Sand
And starting this weekend (14th i believe) another Spielberg / Hanks project called The Pacific. If it is half as good as Band of Brothers it will be well worth watching.
All the best

Totally agree John, surprised you gave it a C!!
» Posted By Thirsty On 06/August/2009 @ 2:42 pm
The simplest ideas are the best!!
By the way John, i will be in Korea from the 17th September for 10 days.
Hope we get chance to catch up, i need to remember to bring my darts….and post-it notes.

Not sure why you owe me a beer…..but who am i to argue!!
» Posted By Thirsty On 16/July/2009 @ 11:14 am
Great idea John,
looking forward to more reviews (And hopefully more success in the league for you).
I am really missing Korea at the moment and will definetly be back in a couple of months for a week of beer and darts!!

Looks like you are having a great time.
I am planning a trip to Bali myself, could you email me details of the place you were staying it looked fantastic.
Do they have a website?

Greetings from Jakarta.
Finally found your blog again via the forum on the dart league sites.
Sounds like you had a good time at the weekend, and congratulations on the 2nd place finish.
No darts for me out here 🙁 but i am planning a visit back to Korea in Sept / October to catch up with everyone and will be sure to bring my darts.
Keep up the good work on the blog and the darts.

I also enjoyed the darts on Saturday, although i didnt stand a chance in the cricket after your 9-mark.
I will have to come along to one of the Friday night tournaments at Dolce some time.

Good to see you back blogging John.
I agree that cheese goes with everything!

Good to see you the other week when i was playing pool at DV.
Glad to hear the darts are back on track! I made my debut in the darts league against the Blessed Bulls, they were very patient with us (3 new players out of 4!).
Needless to say i went 0-6!! But i did hit a 140…too little too late!!
Keep up the good work.

Agree with Craig about reading everything you can…even if you dont understand what it means!
1 of the things that really helped me improve my pronunciation and reading was when watching cable.
Skylife always show the name of the film at the bottom of the screen, try to work out what is on next. Eventually you will find that, for example, Black Hawk Down is still Black Hawk Down just written in Hangul.

Look forward to bumping into you at the 3 Alleys sometime soon.
If you are to “far in the lead” compared to your realtor, feel free to buy my beer and Jaeger!!
» Posted By Thirsty On 26/March/2007 @ 4:14 pm
Glad to hear you are back on your feet.
Im sure some ice cold OB and a couple of shots of Jaegermeister at the weekend will see of the cough and sore throat for good!!

Back To Stats Page
It was good to meet you last night, obviously my plan to distract you from your darts so that 3 Alleys could win did not work!!
See you around.
