    I thought "bag o' nails" was a useless throw.

    Like, your opponent is on 40, you're on 250. You step to the oche and throw a 3. Bag o' nails.

    Z-Man (Randy) uses a new term that's kind of funny. Any time you're going for the bull in cricket and slop in a scoring miss he calls it a "food stamp." Mr. Green

    JG - is it feathers for good grouping, as in Birds of a Feather?

    When people got upset over throwing a T1, S1, S1 and lamenting that a little bit over would have produced a Ton, I nicknamed it a OneTon. Similarly a FiveTon for the other side. If anyone else did it before, apologies.

    I suppose a "BlackHorse" is any shot you post about the next day, but the post has to exceed three paragraphs, include the entire night's scenario as a backdrop, and at least a paragraph on previous history/rivalries. Extra Horseshoe marks for including how you hit a 180 or Deadeye in practice but nothing when it counted. Btw, I forgot to tell you that on Thursday I did hit a Deadeye warming up before the last team game, and then missed the diddle by a mile....which is interesting because two months ago, ....... Razz

    I've always heard a T1 and two S1's referred to as a "[insert country currently out of favor here] ton."

    For example, during the second Gulf war, it was called a French Ton or an Iraqi Ton a lot (no offense to darters from those countries now). Wink

    I agree on the bed and breakfast part....we started chalking it 2F6, written the same way you use the T for writing a ton score. Shouldn't be hard to figure what the F stands for as I'm sure many of us have said it after that shot. Very Happy

    we always called a "22" a Desmond, for Desmond tutu (i don't know why)

    And anytime someone hit a triple with the third dart when the first two were bad , that was called a "jesus saves" dart.

    Actually, while you're on the right track regarding 26, it really dates back to the days before decimalisation, when we used pounds, shillings, and pence. Two-and-six was the abbreviated way of saying "two shillings and sixpence", which was something of a standard price for bed and breakfast.

    We use a nationality around here. Those who live in Lowell,MA. or around Lowell,MA. know what it is.

    In our league, some of the more common terminology is

    A Pair of Swans: score of 22
    Maggie Dart (named after my mom): hitting the D20 while going for the T20)
    House of Pain: D1
    Wannabeoneeighty: Two T20's and a T1 (or T5)
    The Barry Twomlow Out: D7
    Could Have Been Somebody: Two triples and a single of any number
    Only Two.....: the song that many break out in, while attempting to hit three triples of a number or only scoring two marks in cricket (sung to "Only You")

    Interesting... In the UK, "Two Little Ducks" is a bingo term used for the number 22, but it has never really caught on in darts.
