WADDELL'S ONE-LINERS

"William Tell could take an apple off your head, [Phil] Taylor could take out a processed pea."


"When Alexander of Macedonia was 33 he cried salt tears because there were no worlds left to conquer. [Eric] Bristow's only 27."


"He's not just an underdog, he's an underpuppy." [Before Keith Dellar's world title triumph in 1983]

Best of all delivered in the North East accent and Cambridge educated.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Sid waddell 'the voice of darts' Dies

one of the classic lines in darts came after that 1983 world final when Bristow turned down the bull shot and Deller took out 138 to win title

"Bristow did the percentage shot, Deller did the business"

Re: Sid waddell 'the voice of darts' Dies

Very sad news indeed. I remember the Indoor League programme with Freddie Trumann on Sundays Michael which was instrumental getting darts featured, and that's probably where it all started from.

On Andy Fordham..."He's sweating like a hippo in a power shower."

"As Freud said to Jung in Vienna, you can psych up too much for a darts match."

"Bristow reasons; Bristow quickens; Aaaaaah, Bristow."

Real men have singlehanded backhands.

We will miss him. Darts will never be the same without him. Really funny guy, and he made me fall in love with the sport. Legend.

As they say, though. The show must go on.
